11 days to go: The Great Escape
Ssh! Don't tell anyone but today I helped some prisoners escape.
Nine of them actually.
Bear with me on this.
I took in some articles I had written about New York, Hong Kong and Spain.
We talked for a while about what makes a great travel feature and how to take someone on a journey with words.
I then took them through a guided writing exercise in which I asked them to think of a place they had once been.
As we worked several members of the group were smiling at their memories.
Following the final reading they thanked me for "the best session ever."
I had enjoyed listening to their journeys and helping them escape.
For a few hours at least.
