Come on Errol, stop studying your naval and write something astounding for us. (no wooly thinking of course!)

BC go and sit in the corner and meditate. Not to worry though, write when the muse strikes again. :-D

edit: Should that be Navel???

OK plenty to think about this time then (assignment 3.....sounds posh that!)

A Note from the Past
Playing in the hallway one day, your kids accidentally bump into your grandfather clock, which has been in the family for years. As it smashes into the ground, you find a note hidden inside from your great grandfather, who died two months after you were born. Strangely enough, the note is addressed to you.

The Man in the Park
You get back to your studio to develop pictures from the hour you just spent in the park. All of the pictures turn out well, except for a select few. In six photographs, there is a man in the frame. Something seems slightly off, and rather strange about each picture. Who is he and what is weird about the photographs?

Begin a story or poem with the line ( or based on) "When i was young and the world seemed full of promise"

Write a short story or poem using the following words: Time, renew, solitude, sanctuary, choice.

A story or poem about photographs, A photograph

Perse, sorry should have said. Yes had a great holiday, shame the car let us down again. Our main problem is finding out what drained the battery. One suggestion from the fellow who came out was that maybe the alarm went off for some reason and kept going off until the battery ran flat.

Once upon a time in the days of long ago, there lived a nun in a big tree house, which stood on a grassy bank of lovely buttercups in the middle of a beautiful leafy green forest............ ;-) :-D

Persephone Report 4 Jul 2013 00:11

and the nun sat on her window seat gazing out at the buttercups. She said to herself I am fed up with this life, there must be something more for me to do.
