    Very hard to pick between the first three; all lol funny, but I'll give my vote to No. 2 because it puts me in mind of one of my favourite limericks: The Thunder god went for a ride Upon his favourite filly. 'I'm Thore!' he cried, The horse ...

    Given the boy band poster and the fact that it was the small room I suspect daughter, or step daughter. I doubt he knew - about the sharpie at least.

    A bit heartbreaking, really. Did Terry know it was there, one wonders. Perhaps the ex had written it where she'd hoped he'd see it later? Or he saw it and covered it? Many mysteries. Good story ideas in there...

    That's somewhat polymathic of you. I struggle to keep any pursuits up other than writing, and that's my day job too. Photography a little. I recently discovered rangefinder cameras (I have a Voigtlander and a Kiev) which allows me to pretend to be a ...

    The Common Pursuit, by Simon Grey. This was the play I saw with Stephen Fry in the cast. It also starred Rik Mayall. The date was 1988. I think I had abandoned playwriting at that time, I cannot remember. I became more interested in ...

    Isn't the world becoming bi-polar? Maybe the left hand'right hand' devision? I was told that Isis was run by disaffected Irag soldiers whose battle plans are due to Sandhurst manuals - seems more IRA to me. But I honestly don't know. I don't ...

      Squidge I came away feeling like I'd not made any difference at all for them...and a bit of a failure. No idea whether it will help any of the work these students produce in future. They were so reluctant to share their work, you couldn't even offer tips for improvement or explain why something did or didn't work.

    Lady Lorraine I got a surprised from my daughter to day. She was sorting a box she found from moving 10 years ago and found two stories that I did when she was young and said please sort them out and to the end please. So I will be starting the writing Saturday after reading them.
