Writer’s Workshop: Exercise 5.a

The below referenced writing exercise is from my Writer’s Workshop. We’ve continued to hold sessions, virtual now, and this latest had us writing a story—together. One person would write a sentence, scene let’s say. The next would propose a character. The next, conflict, the next… Whatever. And so on and so forth.

It was fun, strange and revealing. We got to intuit writer’s tendencies and predilections.

At the end we produced a hodgepodge of expression. We agreed, however, to allow each person to write a new piece, based on certain constraints: Theme, goal, characters, setting, conflict, etc.

Below is my attempt. Rough draft, but relatively complete.
