The Grange – Recipe for a Writer’s  Course
By Jacqueline Taylor


-    A large dollop of open mindedness
-    A medium dollop of humour
-    A pinch of eccentricity
-    A sniff of curiosity
-    A wealth of experience
-    A handful of gems
-    A spoonful of balls
-    A ladle of words
-    A ton of courage
-    A modicum of time
-    A trunk full of emotions


Mix all of the above together
Shake it about a bit
Separate and re mix
Separate again and adjust the doseage
Attempt to create and assemble
Occasionally shake it up a bit more
Gain confidence in the creation
Complete the assembly and submit the finished production
