This first piece is nothing more than a quick and simple writing exercise. The brief was simple- pick a picture and write a story based on it.
The image is of the character the Baroness from the GI Joe range of toys/cartoon. The Cobra badguys were particular favourites of mine when I was a kid, with the silver-headed Destro was my all time favourite figure. Anyway, that's where the story came from and, as with almost all the writing exercises I've done, it was kept short and to the point. These pieces are good practice when you couldn't otherwise write and there's always the possibility that the piece can come to life and develop into a fully fledged story. I kind of like to leave this one as a fragment, let the reader imagine what else is going on.
