Topic ‘Faking It’
Have you ever inflated your credentials to land a coveted job, told a silly lie to save face in front of a new acquaintance, or felt well and truly out of your comfort zone when you tried something new?
Perhaps faking it helped you gain the experience or tools necessary to bring about real change, whether you were pretending to the world or just deluding yourself.
How did you feel at the time, and how do you feel about it now? Did your fakery ever get found out? Did you surprise anyone, even yourself?
Alternative 500 word topics - a topic from the alternative topics sheet; for new workshop members, ‘The Year that Made Me’; or ‘Desert Island discs’ – describe five pieces of music you would like to have with you if you found yourself alone on a desert island and why.
Cafe catchup – (optional). Our next catch up will be on the 1st Monday in June (6th June) from 2.30 to 3.30 pm at the cafe next door to the Post Office. Bring along ‘alternative topic’ stories; unshared stories (eg. if you wrote two versions of one topic); stories from missed sessions; writing of your own you would like to share/discuss. At our last meeting we agreed that if ever we find our selected cafe is not open when we arrive, we will go to Rustik.
