Story and Poem of the Week and Inspiration Point

And here we are, hurtling towards to autumn. I saw my first advert for an Advent Calender the other day. Just...wrong.

Story of the Week goes to The Prologue of Drew Gummerson's new tale 'The Long And Spectacular Life of Agnes Magnusdottir'. It's beautifully written, with vivid characters and this author's customary wit and flair. You'll want to got straight on to the next bit. The Long and Spectacular Life of Agnes Magnusdottir | ABCtales 

Poem of the Week is hoalarg1's 'Bedtime Blues', which wonderfully captures the restlessness, doubts and exhaustion of a sleepless night. The language is beautiful, a mixture of the physical and the metaphorical, and it's a poem you enjoy more with each reading. Bedtime Blues | ABCtales

I'd like to thank Turlough and his intriguing poem 'Betty Lewis Eyes' (Betty Lewis Eyes | ABCtales) for the inspiration for this week's Inspiration Point, which is here: Inspiration Point: Writing Cues To Battle Writer's Block | ABCtales

Have a good week!
