El Duende

More from the archives. Not a repost, as far as I can tell. Duende is the hardest word to explain I ever came across in Spanish. This one is for all the friends I made amongst students and barflies. Image source Flickr.com: photographer Albertus 82: licence CC-BY-NC 2.0

The Last Man on the Moon

Another old one. Only posted at all because it contains the word 'pandemic'. Sci-Fi. Not fair just to warn you in the summary, I know, but maybe the picture's a clue. Image free for non commercial use from freesvg.org

Timor Mortis Me Conturbat

Warning! Contains Latin with which I have taken a syntactical liberty. Although strictly speaking, the verb is generally at the end of a Latin period,this is merely a phrase. It means 'fear of death disturbs me' Image is by the 17th century painter Philippe de Champaigne, I don't think he'll mind me using it.

Living Under Treacle

Written before, by several years. I read it now and it's not so far out. For everyone affected, as I was between then and now by some, by any of the things this story deals with. Image from pikrepro.com and free for non-commercial reuse.

Really liked this.

You might want to think about the "I"'s lining the page like telegraph poles. It often happens with a first person narrator, I've done it myself. Once it's pointed out you always see it.

Utterly, utterly believable. I hope it's fiction,...

This is really good.

The voice as has been mentioned is really good. I like how much subtext there is. How much we're left to fill in for ourselves about your narrator.
A couple of tiny things. Plural of taxi is taxis, there is an archaic form taxies, but it's...

and textured riot of colour and blooms reminded me of Christina Rossetti's work. It is a deserved Facebook/Twitter Pick of the Day. Why not share or retweet if you like it too_

As good on the ins and outs of the Basketball dream as Harlan Coben (it's a compliment)

I tell you how much I like this? There is satire, menace, allegory, myth and fable, also some tight writing anyone would be proud to have written. It takes genuine talent to get all that stuff in a piece of writing without bashing people over the...

Yes,

you could actually start from "The sun blazed". All the expository back story is a dense amount of telling about the characters. You could show a little all the way through.

"Most of the time he wore a light grey...

For me...

Posted on Wed, 03 May 2017

and how I write (I know, we're all different) I'd keep banging these out and then edit when you've completed a narrative (arc or spiral, who cares?) This is all sufficiently intriguing for me to persevere. If Tim needs to go, get rid of him later...

Posted on Thu, 07 Jul 2016

agree with Jack that the ending seems a little rushed. I'm not sure I want to see (much) more backstory or a substantially longer piece, though. Have you thought about making the story arc more circular... start from just before where it...

Splendid...

Posted on Thu, 07 Jul 2016

the welter of detail contrasts with the things you leave out. The combination of observation of the mundane and the barest of allusions to horrific deeds makes it all the more chilling. Fine stuff.
