- This is FUN!! With as many people as you like, write a story in spoken words. Each person can only say one word, e.g. (Henry) On (Anna) a (Tom) grey (Henry) morning...It gets you thinking really, really fast and the storyline can be as funny/mysterious/realistic as you like.
We are really looking forward to seeing you in September!
