Description of the tool

1. The group sits in a circle ;
2. The facilitator/storyteller tells a part of a traditional tale (about half) and stops at one point.
3. The facilitator asks each participant to imagine an end to the story, and write it down.
4. Each participant tells or read his/her end to the rest of the group.
This is a simple exercice promoting people imagination and oral and written communication.
This process of each person creating his/her own endings and the different possibilities of endings can be exploited afterward for example making a parallel with life path and overcoming difficulties by finding different solutions (=different endings).

Debrieffing :
- was it difficult to imagine an end ?
- what do you think about the different endings ?
- How did you feel ?
