Customised – SHORT STORY

I WAS FLYING. Academically. Monetarily. Socially. Well, maybe not socially. But here I was at the airport after a four hour departure delay, ready to sail through customs, to escape my tedious surroundings, wretched ex-girlfriends and somewhat more importantly, death. I approached in the silent queue, shuffling and staring to either side, trying to alleviate the… Continue reading Customised – SHORT STORY

Thoughts on Writing, Flow and Quotes

IT NEVER CEASES to surprise me, how difficult putting one word after another can be. Sometimes the words fly onto the screen so easily it's disgusting, as if my hands are operating independently of thought. I swear my brain might be in my hands. Then there's the times, when putting a sentence together seems like… Continue reading Thoughts on Writing, Flow and Quotes

Write Out of My Head – SHORTS

This is genuine flash fiction, or 'rash fiction' as I prefer to call it, written during some down time at work. Four separate shorts, four very different topics. Enjoy.   I'VE SEEN HARDENED men in flak jackets take bullets like paintballs.

Writing 0 Art 1

I'm still wrapping my head around layers and paths.… Continue reading Writing 0 Art 1

Starting a new job

They say moving house and divorce are two of the most stressful things in life that can happen to you. Who are 'they'? I'm not sure, but it doesn't really matter right now. Hopefully a divorce won't happen and I've moved house/flat/abode several times - not fun, but even less fun is being 'the new… Continue reading Starting a new job

4 A.M. – POEM

  4 A.M. It’s 4am, without the metronome of times hands, Silent, light emitting diodes spit red, and my brains still wired, So many thoughts, racing behind my eyelids, A conscious knightmare, hoofprints gouging into the soft flesh of my psyche, When will the race end? A chaotic blend of memories and fresh ideas, All furiously… Continue reading 4 A.M. – POEM
