Posted on Mon, 01 Aug 2016

Not remotely a bit rubbish, but it does feel as though the ideas come tumbling out, and much better that way than the other.  In the end we all write for ourselves, or we should, because otherwise it isn't our true voice.  You have it harder than...

Hello!  Welcome to ABC Tales.

Posted on Mon, 01 Aug 2016

Hello!  Welcome to ABC Tales.  I very much liked the rhythm of this, and the contrast between the sound that seemed to be soothing and then became so frightening.  It felt like part of something longer - have you got any plans to expand it? ...

Posted on Tue, 26 Jul 2016

Lots of strange and fantastical things here, with a fluidity between dreams and reality.  I was wondering if it might help with the pacing if you used the dialogue to push the story forward - eg if, in the conversation between the narrator and...

Posted on Mon, 25 Jul 2016

Hello!  I enjoyed this very much.  Beautifully constructed, and some lovely strong phrases like 'the yoghurty morning light'.  A mysterious and unsettling atmosphere with underlying humour.  A rewarding read.

Posted on Mon, 25 Jul 2016

Very perceptive, Luigi - an acronym to sum up someone who lived by the soundbite and image manipulation.  I never really took to him personally but I both voted for him and, later on, marched in protest against him.   The early years of his...

I don't know what you're worrying about, Ewan.  Thousands will march, sweeping all opposition aside, in their quest.  Pikachu will save the world.  #WTF

I don't share your Christian

Posted on Mon, 11 Jul 2016

I don't share your Christian faith, but I admire your honesty and ability for self reflection.  This struck a real chord with me because of what I have been calling a lot of demands on my time recently from people who need support, and it's easy...

Posted on Sat, 09 Jul 2016

Interesting piece, and I'm not sure quite where I stand on this one.  In many ways I agree that if we want quality journalism we should accept we have to pay for it, but the digital genie's out of the bottle with news as with music and other...

Pissing on someone's

Posted on Thu, 07 Jul 2016

Pissing on someone's strawberries will now become part of my lexicon.  Decidedly more evocative than raining on a parade!  As always, this is so wonderfully visual.  The image of policemen with pink binoculars is to be treasured.

Posted on Thu, 07 Jul 2016
