Hi insert. There's an interesting point there. I couldn't get the ending (cadence?) right, or as I heard it in my head. I'd need to rehearse it more, which is tricky at the moment. The crux of the recording issue, I suppose: performance. There's...

Posted on Sat, 01 Dec 2018

A very honest piece. I've been numbed by the response of the BBC to all this, whose approach is to produce a statistical analysis proving that there is no problem. So are the almost daily reports fake news? Or was fake news the failure to report...

Lovely and sparse. Well thought-out, Elsie.

A real invitation to think about what's going on in the spaces between the lines.

Posted on Mon, 25 Jun 2018

What a lovely piece, Gayle. I'm so glad you posted it. Our cat had two homes. We only found out in his latter years. He'd often wait a whole evening outside the pub at the end of the street for my brother, my dad and I to come out and make little...

Posted on Sat, 07 Apr 2018

Thanks Di_Hard. Writers. Critics. Readers. All you can do is get on with the job and see what comes. You should have seen how many times I had to rethread the needle. I turned up for my Eng Lit exam on the wrong day, about 40 years ago. I've been...

Posted on Thu, 06 Jul 2017

Thanks everyone. I'm always amazed and very grateful when someone says something nice about something that I can't seem to help doing.

Maybe something to share: I've recently written three pieces / poetry (?) that readers and writers on...

Posted on Thu, 21 May 2015

It follows the Block School of repetitive poetry, Philip. Founded on Temple Meads station at around 23:30 last night. I'm hoping the Culture Secretary will request that a plaque be installed.

Wow. Crazy roller-coaster fire in fireworks factory story. Brilliant. Yes, I get the Reilly comparison, but I enjoyed this more. I'm glad you kept going with it. I'll read on over the coming days. Far more interesting than some things I've been...

So many ingredients in this warming concoction. You are chef-in-chief indeed, Ed.

Hi Tom. Can't please everyone

Posted on Fri, 04 Oct 2019

Hi Tom. Can't please everyone and I'm certainly not going to go all apologetic over religion. Anyway, it's true, isn't it? It IS said that He created everything. When people start invoking bearded men in the sky to tell women what they can and...
