Story and Poem of the Week and Inspiration Point

Greatly excited about our next online Reading Event, on 26 August! These evenings are always a lot of fun, and it's so lovely to hear people reading their work. Many thanks to Mark Burrow for doing the organising again, and you can find out more (and sign up!) here:

Our Story of the Week goes to Simon Barget's funny, brilliant and bizarre 'Me'. Narcissism isn't just about shouting your mouth off to gain attention, you know. There's a lot more to it than that. In fact, it sounds like very hard work indeed: Me | ABCtales

Poem of the Week is marandina's 'Saccades of Sands'. From its initial striking imagery, to its final contemplation of what 'normal' might represent, this is a beautiful piece of work that will stay with you long after reading: Saccades of Sands | ABCtales

In fact, maradina's poem provided the basis for this week's Inspiration Point! You can find that here: Inspiration Point: Writing Cues To Battle Writer's Block | ABCtales

Have a good week!
