John gave us a 5 minute test to make as many words ending in ADE. There are about 540 in the dictionary we found about 10% of them between us.
This week’s Writing prompt: 'A picture paints a thousand words'.
Look at a scene and capture it in writing. An artist paints a scene but a writer goes beyond the visual. Movement, the passage of time and atmosphere even a sense of mystery can all play a part.
Alternatively “The 'Crescent” soap saga continues as characters meet up in the pub to pit their brains against each other in the quiz.
Thanks to all who attended, next meeting 14\03\19 at Neos.
