11 June 2021
Take your writing off the beaten track on today's exercise

Where is this place? What, precisely, is it selling? What might happen there, or what effects might the products on sale have? Spend a few moments letting your imaginatiion wander and see what you come up with. It doesn't matter if it seems far-fetched – just go with it!

Be as imaginative as you can and write what kind of strange adventures you or a character might have as a result of the 'weird pies' and 'strange pasties'.

Write for 15 minutes.
