Well I have fought with the latest (actually not the latest, the previous) set offering and have managed an ending of sorts so I shall send it out. Not that happy with it but it is better than nothing. :-D

Visited a suggestion site and the ideas were quite good...they suggested

A letter to your future self

A story or poem about yourself,..............were nothing is true

First Kiss

A Colour how does it make you feel, what do you associate with the colour

Not bad ideas could suit both poets and writers

What do you think ?

Nothing that appeals to me there Jan but you have a go, I am still looking at the last lot without much success. I like the ones whereyou have to use a list of words, haven't found that site recently. i.e. they give you about 8 or 10 words that all have to be brought into the story. We did a lot of those in the beginning. I'll have a think. thanks for those anyway.

Anyone else just read Pete's latest offering? I love it, I'm still chuckling.

lol Ann, I think Peter has captured the lingo perfectly :-D

Greenfingers Report 4 Mar 2012 19:01

Not had Peters effort yet or any others either , he always responds to mine though

Dermot Report 4 Mar 2012 19:27

Dermot and Jan I will email Peter as I note your addy isn't on his mailing list.

Good evening :-)

Hello Cat :-D Nice to see you here !

ChAoTicintheNewYear

ChAoTicintheNewYear Report 4 Mar 2012 21:19

Hi Rose :-D

I've been reading through the thread. Wrt the scenarios...is it possible to take inspiration from them but not use every little aspect. For example, I like BC's dark stormy night complete with false teeth and red lipstick but wouldn't necessarily want to have to use the bus driver bit that Ann added.

ChAoTicintheNewYear Report 4 Mar 2012 21:21

Oh, and did you get chance to read that story? It doesn't matter if you didn't but feed back would be appreciated if/when you get time.

AnninGlos

AnninGlos Report 4 Mar 2012 22:10

Cat, yes you can with that one as it was in two parts.

*whispers And we often do our own thing anyway, nothing is set in stone! :-D

Rambling Rose

Rambling Rose Report 4 Mar 2012 22:18

~~~ to both, just trying to catch up with reading ( please let me know if I have missed out on commenting on your work), and sent out a poem also.

Cat, as Ann says we often do our own thing, lol well I do, take bits of one topic and cobble them together with something else ;-)

I have read your blog, so will PM you, but may not be tonight as I'm sniffling and sneezing at the moment and 'might' get an early night.

Thanks, Ann, glad to hear it, I don't always do too well with set in stone :-D

Thanks, Rose :-) No rush on the feedback, I just realised I hadn't asked for any this time.

I'll probably only join in occasionally, at least to start with as job hunting is proving to be a full time job. Just a pity I don't get a full time wage for it ;-)

Rambling Rose

Rambling Rose Report 4 Mar 2012 22:39

Good luck with the job hunting Cat, not easy !

Another suggestion............

There are enough of us, we could all suggest a word and then we could take out three or 4 that appeal

AnninGlos Report 5 Mar 2012 12:20

I am a bit confused. Has Cat sent a piece out? If so I haven't received it.

Jan, could work, you mean each suggest a word to be used in a piece?

Rambling Rose

Rambling Rose Report 5 Mar 2012 12:26

Morning Ann, Cat sent me a link to her own blog, and asked for my opinion on her first piece on it. I'm hoping she will join us when she has a bit of time :-D

Ah thanks Rose, didn't want to think I may have missed commenting.
