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...

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...

Hi fictiontoescape. I've been having a read through some of your posts. It's an epic story and your prose has the feel of having been written by a natural storyteller.
I have a couple of thoughts if you'd like them.

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.

Posted on Tue, 03 Mar 2015

The link between the tender realism of your description of the baby and that of your reverie are the key for me. A beautifully captured moment alone with the moon.

Very complex and atmospheric piece, london_calling. We can all read ourselves into this. Subjectivity and all that. A bit like an ink blot. A very satisfying read.

Enjoyable, again. Sounds a bit like Dorset, but could be anywhere along the south coast.

I found I had to re-read the final paragraph a few times. It doesn't seem to read as easily as its predecessors.
