Sunday shorts – swallows and summertime

Reading Time: 3 minutesIn warm sunshine it’s hard to imagine bad things happening. If it all goes wrong, we think, we could forage for food, live off the land, sleep under the stars with a curious deer nosing at our bare feet. But… Continue Reading →

Friday fic – six worders – very short stories

Reading Time: 3 minutesThis week has been exhausting, in real life and in the news, which is increasingly hard to accept as real life. How has it come to this? Caged children. Nonetheless stories remain important and so here are a very few,… Continue Reading →

Sunday short-short stories

Reading Time: 3 minutesWhat is the point of words? What is the point of blogs? What is the point of poetry? I can’t explain.  -I can explain, but only at length. Either way I won’t stop. I shared a fifty-word short-short story this… Continue Reading →

Friday Fic- rockets and optimism

Reading Time: 2 minutesThe week has been full of headlines about space, Earth, rockets, guns and whether or not Britain can stay in Europe. Astronauts returned home after five months on the International Space Station. A crazy stunt by someone who should know… Continue Reading →

Reading Time: 3 minutesI’ve been reading China Mieville’s Kraken this week – a book made for me if ever there was one – and so my writing lately has been stranger than usual. I have not had time to do a set 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 →

Friday fic – six word stories

Reading Time: 2 minutesThis week’s stories are a little different to usual. I’ve had awful vertigo for two weeks, which is as much fun as you’d imagine, and not been able to read or write as much as I’d like. These are faux headlines,… Continue Reading →
