Fine Dining with The Write Factor

2017-05-19T13:05:37+00:00

Truly a writing course to savour... The snow-blinding whiteness of a blank page stared back at me, willing me to add a bit of colour. This has always been my problem - where to start. I have also always had a fear of writing something and then being terrified of somebody reading it and saying [...]

Present Tense

2015-12-09T17:18:04+00:00

The best presents are experiences, not objects – so why not give your loved one the experience of a fun and fascinating writing course this Christmas? If you’ve run out of wrapping paper and the Sellotape is all snarled up, fret not. Research has shown that the best presents are experiences rather than material [...]

Help! Songwriter Trapped in Publishing Company

2017-05-19T13:05:40+00:00

An ode to writing and composing amongst eagle-eyed editors “It’s your turn to write a blog today.” Oh... It’s interesting being surrounded by writers and editors (note to self: look up the collective nouns – a ‘nib’ of writers, a ‘slash’ of editors?) how the immediate reaction to such a demand causes one’s throat [...]

What’s Your Story?

2017-05-19T13:05:40+00:00

To quote Mark Twain, “write what you know” because sometimes truth is stranger than fiction. We’ve been having fascinating conversations here in The Write Factor office regarding the stories we tell about ourselves and our families. It’s really interesting to take a step back and see how we each ‘curate’ our stories and repeat [...]

Writing As Therapy

2015-11-09T15:50:12+00:00

Even if you just scribble down how you’re feeling and throw it away, writing is good for your emotional and mental health. The other day I wrote something down and threw it away. It wasn’t in a fit of pique; I knew before I had started that its destiny involved wicker. A particularly thorny problem [...]

Bored by the Bard

2015-10-21T11:21:34+00:00

The Write Factor’s Emily Cunningham takes issue with Benedict Cumberbatch – haven’t we done Shakespeare to death already? I have a confession to make: I am not that keen on Shakespeare. I blame my parents. I grew up near Stratford-upon-Avon and was regularly dragged to the Royal Shakespeare Company as a child and expected to [...]

What’s It Got To Do With Choo?

2015-10-16T10:51:23+00:00

These are our two favourites from this week's five-minute flash fiction writing exercise, including the words: aubergine, reflect, batter, filthy, crumple.   Give Her The Boot She is standing there, barring my path. I know what she's after. Every female on the estate has been eyeing the aubergine-coloured boots in the local charity shop. A tenner is [...]

Thank you to all the people who sent in their five-minute exercises. The task was to use the following words: drench, rollerskates, astronaut, bloody and handbag. Here are our three favourites.   Winning Entry – First Time Ever 5-Minute Story Seeing Suzi there, I felt the impulse to drench her, aiming the hose pipe so [...]
