Southend on Sea Picture Postcard


We went to Southend, and made castles out of sand and seashells. I bought you a stick of your favourite stripy rock. We took a ride on the big wheel I’m not afraid of heights, but it’s scarier than you think as it was suspended for a while, and I found it hard to open my eyes.

I played bingo, but I didn’t win anything although I did win a prize on one of those crane machines and that was on the first try.

See you soon

Cagefighting – 100 word screenplay

In front of a bus shelter seagulls peck at some food.

A young Asian lad throws a chip at them.

He looks at an older white man.

LAD: I cage fight.

The older man nods politely.

LAD: I can do two fights in a night. Easily.

He stops to eat a chip.

LAD: You thought about it.

MAN: What.

LAD: Cagefighting.

The man smiles shyly shaking his head.

LAD: Could teach ya

The man looks at his watch.

LAD: (staring at him) I …I could ya know

The man signals for the bus

MAN: No it’s ok.

He sits at the front.  The younger man sits behind him.
