Egos A-go-go.

The next session raced round! 

I wrote three pieces for the homework in the five days we had, feeling so much better.

It’s odd, but I thrive better under a little pressure.

Anywho I arrived at The Shop with a little time to spare and saw that I’d been beaten there by Lauren and Becca. Both appeared extra smiley. 

‘D’you want the good news or the good news?’ Bex asked, as Lauren giggled with an air of excitement.

It turns out that we’ve been granted funding and a permanent place to call our hub!

Granted, the funding ain’t gazillions, but it will help with materials. I was going to be looking at the room in a few days, when the keys were handed over.

The proviso was that we needed everything above and beyond board. That included needing a chairman, a treasurer and a secretary. Immediately I stated that I didn’t want anything to do with money or the receipts there of, as it isn’t my thing. The girls smiled and told me that that was fine as they wanted me as chairman, Lauren as treasurer and a third person, to be decided, as secretary.

After less than a moment we decided that the star baker of last week, Michael, should be offered it. He, however, couldn’t attend that week, due to his family commitments. Sad, because I was looking forward to his homework too.

Anywho, the class started and we had some fantastic written pieces on the word: ahem.

We then tackled the modelling of our masks. I will show some pics soon. 

It was very therapeutic! 

I used plaster of Paris; whereas the others used papier-mâché. They moved on to Paris after seeing how quickly I’d shaped the skull, I can tell you! 

I left my head to dry and will come back to it during the next session to create my masterpiece. And then look up the word “masterpiece”.

The homework was: Jehovah. Terry Jones will be pleased. 


About Chris42

I am a liar! A maker-uper of stories! If this was the 16 (c) I'd be burned as a witch. Fank goodness it is not, eh?! I have four children: two wonderful girls, a fantastic lad and Leeds United. I have no strict genre. I write children's poetry and stories, to edgy, stronger themes. Up until now I have stored them for my own and my family's viewing. Last year i thought bugger it and starred in several short films. One, Playground, which is on the BBC Film Network, used the monologue that I wrote for the audition. You should've seen the face of the receptionist, of the Manchester hotel, where the audition was being held, as I turned up dressed as the psychopath, Gordon. It got the desired effect! I then moved up to Cumbria and wrote and appeared in several live performances on stage. 2012. A local artist, Kayleigh Richardson, commissioned me to write a poem for her to paint a representation. I sent her, The Rise of the Robot Monkey Army. Kayleigh painted a fantastic piece that blew my mind! From that we are collaborating on the Jacob Bear series of stories. Oh and Two's Company is to published, along with seventeen other Sci Fi short stories as part of a collection. Not a bad start to the, so called, last year of the Earth. Now is the time to show the rest of you. I take my themes wherever i see them, whether in reality or dream-world. I hope you enjoy. If not tell me why. If so tell me why. Many thanks and be safe. So far I have published: Jacob Bear's first Christmas,https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007GK872A (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007GK872A (USA) Jacob Bear Goes to School https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007JD3OKY (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007JD3OKY (USA Jacob's First Words https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007VZWPSC (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007VZWPSC (USA) Space Here https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007H96M90 (UK) &http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007H96M90#reader_B007H96M90 The Rise of the Sponge Cake Moon https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007WWZ16M (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007WWZ16M (USA) © Madstoffa, 2012.
