Story and Poem of the Week and Inspiration Point

We're having what we in the UK call a heatwave, so it's been nice to be able to sit in the shade and read lots of lovely stuff on ABC this week.

Poem of the Week is the latest in bhi's brilliant sequence This Life. This one is called Resilience - as usual the writing is wonderful and the images draw you completely into the writer's vision, but there is also message within it that is absolutely perfect for our times: (This Life) Part 7: Resilience | ABCtales

Story of the Week goes to Charlie77's decidedly unsettling 'A Dance at the Crofter's Head'. A folk music night in a village pub - what could possibly go wrong? Again, wonderfully written and completely gripping. We await Part 2 with impatience: A Dance at the Crofter’s Head | ABCtales

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