This exercise is great when you a have a big group. Take a piece of paper and choose one person to come up with a title. That person then passes it to the person next to them. That person writes one sentence, folds the title and passes it to the next person. Each person can only see the one sentence that the person wrote before them. Keep this going until you have filled up a page or if you have a lot of people you can set a timer.
Here is an example of one that Christine, Esther, Kiki and Sunny wrote this week:
Title: Sinister Spiders
The alley was dark and littered with wood. Perfect platforms lying idle in the night.
Like leaves strewn all around after a ferocious autumn storm.
The cool whip of winter's welcome, white whispers wishing for her whim.
She lay on her warm rug by the crackling fire, waiting for the creepy crawly thing that she knew was lurking nearby.
And then out he came- eight legs; hairy, rising higher than his back. Eyes green, blazing and fangs dripping with red. He was wearing red, sparkling high-heeled shoes.
Once the show began, the audience managed to sit back, relax and enjoy the true beauty of the glamour that stood before them.
The glitter of life.
