Daisy and The Chalet Woman (Part One)

I am really struggling with this one. I've got two thirds of the way through and I now have about three endings, all entirely different, and I can't decide. I don't even know what genre to put it in. Depends on the ending...

I'm not a fan of the Family,

Posted on Mon, 18 Apr 2016

I'm not a fan of the Family, but I felt for her son, posing for 'that' picture.  Choosing between the symbolism of doing it and the symbolism of not.  Whatever the perks, I wouldn't fancy life as a signifier.

Interesting idea with lots of detail -  is ths part of something longer or are you thinking of expanding it?  Lazlo sounds like a character with lots of potential for development before his sad demise.  Or was it his demise?  I think there were...

Particularly liked the portrayal of the relationship between George and Mary - very moving.  I find the way you are introducing the characters very interesting - they appear, with their own stories, as needed by the plot.  You haven't followed...

Posted on Wed, 13 Apr 2016

I like the way the poem's structure emphasises the ambivalence, the simultaneous need for and fear of dependence.  The poem also makes you wonder about the dynamics of the relationship, and what the 'other half' thinks about it.  A good read. ...

Perfumes are so evocative.

The magic of the not quite

This is a really interesting

Posted on Thu, 24 Mar 2016

This is a really interesting read - I love the mix of fact and personal reminiscence.  I've never read 'A Kid For Two Farthings' but I remember seeing the film on telly years ago.   As far as I recall Diana Dors was in it - which sounds  unlikely...
