Writers group March homework

The writers group met for our lunch time meeting today. It was a good meeting but once again I had nothing to read out, as I don't think they would be much interested in an essay about the origins of the first world war. As always I was amazed at what they came up with using the same prompts. This months home work is to take something you have already written and to try telling it in another way. For example as an animal story; as a myth; as sci-fi; as an adventure; as a legend; as a school story; as fantasy; as a ghost tale; as an urban legend; as a western... The point is to try something you wouldn't normally try.

Paper bird

I had a spare hour between reading text books, writing essays, working and running and thought I'd have a go at another of Rob Ives paper projects.  I love this dipping bird, although mine doesn't seem to be as up right as Rob's paper bird.  I wonder if I can change the design slightly to turn the bird into a chicken, then I can make myself a flock and 'im outdoors won't need to worry about his veg.
