What I’ve written
Sunday 200 Posts
This blog has achieved 200 posts since I started it in February.
Charlie Maddox doesn’t want to go home, but his cousin is not giving him a choice.
A story from two points of view: an argument, an accident and a secret.
A poem inspired by, but not about, receiving an envelope labelled “fragile”, which had been folded multiple times.
Sometimes, characters don’t like the way the author writes them.
Friday Fatty Lump
Fantasia Dog tells the story of a slightly anxious trip to the vet.
Saturday Happy Birthday Wendy
In the final chapter of my work in progress, Wendy celebrates her birthday with her family and friends.
(Look out next Saturday for something new, while I edit the Venomous Void for publication.)
What I’ve enjoyed reading
- I absolutely loved Samantha James’ short story The Haunting of Mackleberry Bridge.
- Alina Lee’s short story Sinking kept me holding my breath.
- Lady Jabberwocky’s post The Golden Rule of Fiction Writing: Show Don’t Tell.
- I sometimes listen to books on LibriVox (free public domain audiobooks read by volunteers). I was delighted to discover something listed as “Agatha Christie Omnibus” was actually a collection of old radio plays based on Christie’s books.
- Not reading at all, but I just discovered Round the Twist is on Netflix. What a fun blast from the past!
