My stories

The Cottage at the End of the World

Why would anyone visit the cottage at the end of the world? And what was it Elizaeth required of the stranger who lived there?
Cherry

Ukulele Lesson 7

Sore fingertips, a squeaky toy, and an unplanned canine intervention. Oh, not forgetting, some sound advice on home insurance.

Ukulele Lesson 6

In which I get the ukulele player's equivalent of man-flu and Tiger Mother reveals her number one teaching technique of moving the goalposts. NOTE: I would advise reading at least some of the earlier lessons rather than jumping in on this one - it might save on confusion.
Cherry

Ukulele Lesson 5

The Tiger Mother softens, I get to play my first tune, and a cat gets to surrender one of its eight lives, apparently.
Cherry

Ukulele Lesson 4

The one where I mistake the Tiger Mother's offer for an act of generosity and I learn the meaning of the word maladroit.

This was an absolutely wonderful read. From the opening lines I had total confidence that the writing would not let me down, that it would stay crisp and sharp and the coherence would be maintained. It is as if you have found the secret of...

I do like this...though I guessed early on where it was going to lead me, it didn't detract from the poem. The technical language of the imagery is nicely at odds with the actual subject. This creates a tension that brings the poem alive.

You have to hand to Fantastic Mr Fox and Co. They've adapted so well to the urban environment.

Absolutely top-hole old chap. Spiffing read. Sweetcorn you say? Sounds like you could be one of her five-a-day.

I agree wholeheartedly with

Posted on Fri, 30 Jul 2021

I agree wholeheartedly with with Kilb50 about the poem, but I couldn't help noticing the title. Helen wasn't abducted. She was in cahoots with Paris all along. When the Trojans argued for sending her back, both she and Paris refused. Which is a...

I have come back to this post

Posted on Sat, 27 Jun 2020

I have come back to this post several times today because I find its crispness refeshing. You have a very clean writing style which is naturally fluent and easy to read. You also know how to use the narrator's voice to manipulate atmosphere and...

This is very short but it

Posted on Fri, 02 Aug 2019

This is very short but it conjures up a vivid image. Even though it is a fantastic notion, it still has believability. Overall it works really well.

Posted on Thu, 01 Aug 2019

I like the subject. I also like how compact the writing is, nothing wasted, every line brief but adding its own weight.
