Story and Poem of the Week and Inspiration Point

Firstly some rather sombre news. Yesterday we had to cancel the account of someone who continued to post AI assisted writing despite numerous warnings. We rarely ban users and it’s always a sad moment for us so if you’re thinking of trying AI please remember that this is an AI free site and it will result in you losing your account. We do check things very carefully and all the editors are consulted before such a decision is made. 

On a brighter note, we had another hugely enjoyable ABC Tales on-line reading event last weekend. I've been going to these events for years, and each time I think they can't get any better. And each time they prove me wrong. Congratulations to insertponceyfrenchnamehere for brilliant organising and hosting.

Our Story of the Week is another brilliant piece from Sean McNulty, which he actually read at last Saturday's event. It's full of larger than life characters, brilliant dialogue and crackling atmosphere: by misadventure | ABCtales

Poem of the Week is Ewan's wry take on what the next six weeks will bring for the people of the UK. We're having a General Election. If you need to know there is still some sanity in the madness, Ewan's poem may reassure you: Empty M_______o | ABCtales

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

Have a good week!
