Meet Up and Scribble Night

A small group of us met up for a scribble session at Delicious Bangsar last night. Priya, Angeline, Seck Yen, Anna and Animah all did my creative writing course last year, though at different times, and hadn't met each other before.

We took some (crazy!) prompts from The Writer's Book of Matches: 1,001 Prompts to Ignite Your Fiction by the staff of Fresh Boiled Peanuts literary magazine. I ended up writing about a dentist who gets stabbed while waiting in the queue at TGV to pick up his tickets for The Da Vinci Code.

Yes, the stories came and sat with us too. Some of them pretty bizarre. Seck Yen and Animah both have absolutely surreal imaginations ...

Here's a couple of pictures I took:

The glamorous Anna who told me to caption this picture "It's the lack of oestrogen" for some reason!
Seck Yen reading his stuff and Angeline listening with rapt attention.
The good news of the evening - Priya is going to have a play performed at KLPac soon!

may i have her number?

Anna said...

Thank you again for yesterday. Although the caption has been diverted to serving another mean (noun) but not lean (adj) image! And the rest of the pictures you sent via e-mail are bearing an undecipherable message! I think I need extra imbibing. And it will make sense! Ciao

A great time was had by all. I wish I had the discipline to write at other times.

Sharon, perhaps you could start up a dating service for those like the Visitor ...

bibliobibuli said...

A guy with visible nipples in a pastel yellow t-shirt is just disturbing.
