This is the first task. I wanted to start gently with some intros. Your first task is to write your name and an alliterative word to describe you (this could be in a sentence if you’d prefer) Alliteration is the repetition of the first letter or sound at the start of a word. For example “Grieving Gertrude” or “Everything is turning to shit Emma”. It can be serious, tongue in cheek or funny, however you want to tackle it. You can explain your choice or not, however you want to do it. Also you can share it any way you choose. Draw it out, type it, add a photo and pop it in the comments. The choice is yours. Whatever feels best to you.
I look forward to sharing this writing group with you. Feel free to DM me if you need any help or any support. If you have any suggestions or ideas then please get in touch, I am open to all x
My Week 1 task was…
My taste has always been wide and varied so I am definitely eclectic. From music to films, to hobbies and pastimes I am drawn to a huge variety of things. This was pulled into focus yesterday as I walked through Manchester listening to randomised music going from Panic! At the disco, to Little Mix, to Black Sabbath, to Taylor Swift, to Wu Tang Clan and then to The Greatest Showman soundtrack in the space of 6 songs. I dance-walked and internally (I hope) sang along to them with the same joy and gusto. .
It’s one of those words that also jars a bit on the way out and that also suits me too. I’m awkward and life often leaves me a bit jarred.
Hello! I’m Emma. I wanted to start this writing group as a way to help myself and others process their grief. I enjoy writing but I need a bit of guidance. All spelling mistakes are my own and please excuse my weird ever changing handwriting. I lost my daughter Eilys in 2016. She was 1 year and 2 weeks old. She had a condition called Spinal Muscular Atrophy.
