Coffee break exercise: Travelling companion


08 April 2022
Write about a companion on a journey in this week's exercise

It's up to you where you go with this theme. Perhaps you'll write from memory, about a travelling companion from your own life. Or perhaps you'll invent a fictional sidekick (it doesn't have to be human!) and send them off on a journey with your main characters. Maybe you'll muse about the ideal qualities for an on-the-road partnership. Perhaps they'll have a wild ride - a real adventure. Or what about a look at the dynamics when a travelling companion is less than ideal, or goes off the rails? Plenty of scope there for comedy... or tragedy...

Enjoy the trip with your travelling companion in writing!
