    >Two Creative Writing Prompts

    >We were talking about setting the scene and establishing mood at my creative writing class tonight.  As a part of that we did two exercises. The first was to describe a place you love or hate in two sentences without saying why you love or hate it. Ducks, geese and swans as well as a sewage works, this is the noisy home to an eclectic mix.  You usually end up getting either sunburnt, really wet, or both and laughing as you watch spectacular sunsets whilst doing something you thought impossible.That’s Oxford Sailing Club in case you hadn’t guessed I was talking about sailing.  The first thing my tutor said when…

    >Creative Writing Prompt – Someone Following Someone

    >My creative writing class started again last night for the new term. And we did a ten minute free writing type exercise. Mark gave us a variety of prompts and I chose someone following someone. This is what I wrote. Not edited at all. Loitering in the doorway of a busy coffee shop, he tried to blend in as he looked around. Jack hoped to spot Sarah soon. He also hoped she didn’t spot him. If Sarah saw him this would all be over before it even started. Suddenly he saw her. She’d changed her hair in an attempt not to be recognised and was walking quickly with her head…
