I don't know if this will work very well, but we'll give it a go.

First, someone thinks of a title, let's say 'Going on a canal holiday' , and a letter of the alphabet, let's say 'I'.

That person then writes a sentence where the first word begins with 'I', for example:

It was a beautiful sunny day when the barge left the dockside.

The next person's sentence would begin with 'J', eg

Jane looked out from the barge.

Then 'K' etc., until you get back to 'I' again.

Then it's time for someone to start a new story!

Might not work very well, but let's give it a go. biggrin.gif

First title : 'Taking Grade 1', first letter 'T'.

First sentence:

The car pulled up outside the test centre.

Zimmer frames are usually useful for this type of purpose so I grabbed one from a passing pensioner to finish the job, after which I found myself in the strangest waiting room I had ever seen.... blink.gif

"Can you imagine anyone thinking such horrible paintings would be soothing things to hang in a waiting room?"

Four other people were in the waiting room, including the steward, who was waiting for me to give her my name.
