Writers on the road

A couple of weeks ago, I found myself on a freezing cold street in the middle of Leicester, getting three wonderful writers to lie down in the middle of the road. Sometimes creativity leads and you just have to follow, even though you find yourself in strange places.
The original creative idea came from writer Terri Bradshaw, who suggested a name and image for the upcoming Leicester Writers' Club show. She said if we called it "Writers on the road", we could promote the event with a picture of some writers ON a road. Simple. Brilliant.
So we did it and I got to take the photograph - which was perhaps less dangerous than having to lie in the road. But my fingers near froze handling the camera!
Note: This wonderfully narrow, and thoroughly road-like road is Short Street, just behind the bus station in Leicester.
