My stories

Corruption

Exploring the background to events in my story 'I Wish I Might'. Started off as a response to the IP 'Tramp', stalled, and then brought back to life by this week's IP.

Story of the week

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...

Delightful, Jenny.  As a cat

Posted on Wed, 25 Nov 2020

Delightful, Jenny.  As a cat lady myself (I've had four over the years, but never more than two at a time!) I recognised a lot of this.  My present mog is sitting next to me keeping an eye on things, as she always does!

I'm fascinated by octopuses

Posted on Tue, 24 Nov 2020

I'm fascinated by octopuses too, and I was gutted when I learned how short their lives are.  They're so brilliantly intelligent, and in a way that's totally alien to us.  They do appear to have a sense of humour, though, so perhaps there are...

The ideas will come.  My concentration's been shot to pieces during lockdown.  I keep reminding myself, just get words, any words, down on the page.  Then have a go at a sentence.

Posted on Wed, 11 Nov 2020

You make your reader feel as though they're right there with you.  I don't know how you got through life without the glories of apple pie.  The best I ever had was when I was ten years old, in a cheap cafe, with squirty cream.  Been trying to...

Love that link, Luigi.  That'll be me, rigging up my radio and fuelling my (non-existent) car with wood.  Or not.  Being a marauding Zombie sounds much more fun.
