Fantasy World Clash Title Generator

Reading Time: 3 minutesI’ve been reading and watching The City and the City by China Mieville this week. Two cultures in permanent conflict, sharing the same space, each city diligently ‘unseeing’ the other. It made me want to create a culture clash of… Continue Reading →

Friday fic – fifty-word stories

Reading Time: 3 minutesI have been watching the BBC’s 2008 adaptation of Sense and Sensibility this week – an unusual version for its focus on the male characters, especially Colonel Brandon, played by the excellent David Morrissey. And so this week’s fifty-word stories have… Continue Reading →

Friday fic – fifty word stories

Reading Time: 1 minuteI don’t often write about inanimate objects but this week there are two fifty-worders about things rather than people. The third story this week may ring a bell if you’ve been following a certain court case. Microfiction is becoming a… Continue Reading →

Slinging spells and flinging cards

Reading Time: 4 minutesI read Spellslinger this week in about three gulps and have been inspired by its greatness – to learn about cards, and to hurt my own characters, a lot. Honestly Sebastien de Castell heaps bad luck and trouble on his main character,… Continue Reading →

Friday fic – six word stories

Friday fic – fifty word stories

Reading Time: 2 minutesThree fifty-worder fics this week, sent to you from Norfolk where I have been on a family holiday – thirteen of us in a Georgian house complete with pantry, two foot thick walls, secret staircases and a row of little… Continue Reading →

Reading Time: 4 minutesI could go all metaphorical here and say that every writer is an island because ideas must spring from the writer’s head alone… But I won’t. I’m thinking about real islands and why I like them and why we humans… Continue Reading →

Friday fic – fifty word stories

Reading Time: 1 minuteHere are three new fifty-worders – tiny microfiction stories of just 50 words each.       In other news, I’m on the second part of the Split Worlds fantasy, plus the fourth part of Django Wexler’s Shadow Campaigns. I’ve… Continue Reading →

Friday fic – even shorter stories

Reading Time: 3 minutesThis week I have, again,  been writing short-short fiction – but the fifty-word stories were starting to seem … lengthy. I recalled the story attributed to Hemingway and thought, why not try to write ‘a novel in six words’? Here’s… Continue Reading →
