A Tentative Return

THAT'S THE SITE back online. I hope all you regulars are still blogging away. Four months since my last post. Time flies - or flew - for one reason or another. Not sure how many people still visit, but seems like WordPress has updated itself a bit and already I feel a bit lost. Not much a… Continue reading A Tentative Return

Weekly Six XXXII – Six Word Stories

ONE, TWO, THREE, four, five. I can't count much above that, but I'm fairly certain there are six words in each story, no more no less. Enjoy: Amicable divorce: hatred split fifty fifty. River bed, body found. Denim, stonewashed. Red carpet. No photographers, no premier. Blood diamond> Smugglers asshole>Wifes ears. Their arm slowly disappeared: sea hungry.… Continue reading Weekly Six XXXII – Six Word Stories

Weekly Six XXXI – Six Word Stories

MORE STORY FOR your money/ time. Well, yeah, time. Some more six word stories, the 31st edition. I've seemingly stockpiled six word stories like a country might with nuclear warheads whether the war is cold or not. Enjoy: 50 shots. None dead. Toy won. No angels, no snowmen: nuclear winter. Evolution reversing without mirrors. Phoneshop queues.… Continue reading Weekly Six XXXI – Six Word Stories

Weekly Six XXX – Six Word Stories

THE WEEK WHERE roman numerals are very, very easy to misinterpret... I'm still busy and settling so this it for now, I've been scribbling a bank of six worders all week at my new place, and doing some book editing. Hopefully normal WP service will resume shortly and I'll be reading your posts once more.… Continue reading Weekly Six XXX – Six Word Stories

Goodbye For Now

How long is a piece of string? How long, is a goodbye? It depends, seems like the most reasonable answer. I'm moving and I'll be without laptop and internet for the forseeable future, although I'm sure I'll find somewhere to get online and stay up to date with all my favourite blogs. I'm not sure… Continue reading Goodbye For Now

Big Trouble in Little Time – SHORT STORY

EVER WATCHED A kung-fu movie? I used to watch them a lot as a kid, loving the fantastical tales of redemption replete with bad dubbing, outrageous stunts and frequently outlandish deaths. I wrote my own. Sort of: . "He must die!" Wei Ping, the Golden Bear stood defiantly in the middle of Tu Langs modest… Continue reading Big Trouble in Little Time – SHORT STORY

The Sea Can Take – SHORT STORY

      SURFBOARD WASHED UP; broken. They were still catching waves, I was sure of that. No more paddling, just one grand wave, ever moving, never breaking. Of course the mind plays tricks, tries to convince us there's a life beyond life. It would be greedy, don't you think? One is enough. Some of us get… Continue reading The Sea Can Take – SHORT STORY

My Hornbill, My Only Hornbill – SHORT STORY

   HE STARTED CALLING me 'Hornbill ' recently. Probably for a couple of months now come to think of it, about the same time he started work on the basement. I never went down, it gave me the creeps. Can you believe that? A woman of forty scared of some stairs and the dark. Well… Continue reading My Hornbill, My Only Hornbill – SHORT STORY
