Coffee break writing exercise: Celebrations
Think about the good times in this week's creative writing exercise – and then write a version where it all goes wrong
For your first five minutes, make a list of different sorts of celebration that have been part of your life – for example birthday parties, weddings, prize giving.
For the remaining ten minutes pick one of them and add some poetic licence (if you need to!) Create a story or poem where everything goes wrong. Alternatively, play the ‘what if’ game and create the beginning of a novel that starts at a birthday party where a child goes missing.
