This was Diane Wells's piece for the May on-line Writing Group Meeting. We had all been reading how Helen Sharman the astronaut thought that it was possible that Aliens are living among us, perhaps invisible, as life can take other forms so this story was quite a coincidence....
Creative Writing enables us to create new worlds and people but often we turn to what we know as a foundation. This story makes use of an entertainment technique witnessed by the author at Disney World as well as the title of a famous Ernest Hemingway story.
The Writing Group are spending the summer taking inspiration from ordinary objects found in and around the home. Delphine Robertson has contributed two pieces looking at the world from the point of view of a rubbish Skip and a Garden Shed. The group felt that they were humorous, quirky and very well written – we are sure that you will agree with them!
In this piece, Mariam George imagines the point of view of an old garden shed when faced with new owners and a make over. She unpicks what the changes the owners make mean both to the shed and to themselves.
