This week in the Spider Project writing group we welcomed a new tutor.  Her first task for us was to read through some newspapers she had brought along and discover a character who interested us.

My eye was caught by an article in the Daily Fail about the death of Mary Tyler Moore.  Not being American, I had (and have) no idea who Tyler Moore was, but she died and that’s a shame.  However – have you ever read a sentence in the newspaper and thought, “Nah, that’s bullshit, mate?”  I did, and I wrote my story about that very thing.
