Too Good/Too Bad

 Ian invited everyone to think of a character from legend, literature or film that was a recognised example of goodness or badness, and then depict them with the opposite attributes in a first-person narrative consisting of emails, tweets, Facebook posts or letters etc. Other members would then try to guess who the person chosen was.

After considerable head scratching and twenty minutes of writing, members read out their pieces, most of which were guessed correctly by the others. Peter chose Lady Macbeth as his subject; Ella, Alice Walker; Pam, Isambard Kingdom Brunel; Joe, Vladimir Putin; Susan, King Arthur; Lindsay, Robin Hood; Charlotte and Sheila, Cinderella; Maggie, The Big Bad Wolf (from ‘The Three Little Pigs’) and Ian, Doctor Who. Members agreed it had been an interesting if challenging exercise.




Our friendly group meets once a fortnight at the St Wilfred's Community Centre on Trinity Lane and is always open to new members from the Ripon area and beyond. Whether your interest is in poetry or prose, novels, short stories, plays, wacky humour, a more analytical style of writing, or just listening for the time being, you're very welcome.
