Story and Poem of the Week and Inspiration Point

I've greatly enjoyed another week of tremendous ABCTales writing, and this week's Picks are absolute stunners.

Story of the Week is Mark Burrow's 'Council Estate Jesus'. Wonderful characters and dialogue that build tension so that the whole structure balances on a knife-edge. By the end, you feel you've glimpsed, and learned from, something very important: Council Estate Jesus | ABCtales

Poem of the Week is Yutka's 'Impaired'. This finds beauty in memory among the desolation of loss, with love and pride weaving through the sadness. Wonderfully written and profoundly moving:  Impaired | ABCtales

This week's Inspiration Point is here: Inspiration Point: Writing Cues To Battle Writer's Block | ABCtales
