Friday Fictioneers – The Lake

  PHOTO PROMPT © Roger Bultot Rochelle Wisoff-Fields-Addicted to Purple hosts the flash fiction challenge called Friday Fictioneers! Take the challenge to write a piece of flash fiction in 100 words using the weekly picture prompt.   At sunset, the red sky reflects, as ripples form across the water. The movement, as people jump in, disturbs its stillness. The reflection from the boat, casts shadows and creates a gloom over the pretty lake. I’ve been coming here since a little girl with Jen. I reminisce about the fun afternoons as we walked Penny… Read More

Flash Fiction – Stranded

  Waves crash against the rocks as the ocean smashes against the new safe world he now calls home. The sea is vicious as he waits for his saviour to rescue him. The demons talking in his head. His chest tightens as the atmosphere smothers his breath and takes the air out his lungs. He remembers the death that brought him here to this island. A murder and blood. 7 Days Ago… The top deck was quiet that night. No one was there. In the dark, he walked under the stars thinking… Read More

Daily Prompt – Dear Diary…

Dear Diary … Monday So, I’m writing this right now as I can’t wait until I go to bed!  I just got home from school! It was amazing! He was so lovely and said he would walk me home! EEk! I can’t believe he likes me! I’m in the year below him too. He is my new love! I think I really like him! Tuesday I got to school this morning and Josh came straight over. He didn’t even bring his friends over to me to say hi but I don’t care!… Read More

A New Year!

  I will apologise for the lack of presence on my blog… It’s because NaNoWriMo happened and then Christmas. It’s unfortunate that they fell at the same time and I decided that with so much ‘stuff’ going around in my brain I couldn’t cope with all of them occupying it at the same time. I need a break frankly from the PC. It’s technology that I dislike but in the modern world, it is essential. Well I had a break … of two months and it probably was a lot longer than I… Read More

Happy Thanksgiving!

  Happy Thanksgiving to all my friends over the pond. I’ve woken up today in a happy mood. Whether that is because I slept well or if it’s because I hit 29’000 word count for my novel, I’m not sure. What I am sure about is that I have a lot to be thankful for. When it comes to life we have to be thankful to have our family and friends, a career that makes money to keep a roof over our heads and our health. we are alive so embrace it! Here… Read More

Procrastination – The Route of all Evil!!!

As you all know, I decided to jump in not just feet first but headfirst into the abyss of the swimming pool that is NaNoWriMo! I had the inspiration, the main character and a bloody good idea for an amazing psychological thriller. My head was telling me, no but my heart was yearning for a childhood dream to be lived. I needed to just get on and do what I have always wanted to do and write a novel. This is something that I’ve always wanted … not just an idea but… Read More

NaNoWriMo Has Taken Over!

  Yes! It is the month of preparation for this years  NaNoWriMo! I’ve been absent from the blogging world for more than a week and I’m missing the daily updates and interaction. I guess it is my own fault as I’ve been preoccupied with preparation but I shouldn’t have neglected my followers! So apologies to you all! So my news is that I am most definitely joining in with the thousands of other people who are going to write a 50’000 word novel in the month of November. I have no idea… Read More

Everyday Inspiration – Day 4: A Story in a Single Image

So, again I slipped on the blogging university challenges! Oops. I’m back on it now … again Day 4 was to post a photo from a selection provided to spark a post for today. The above image is the one I’ve chosen. I went to Cornwall in the summer with my family and our local doggy walk looked to be something very similar to this one. I actually posted a photo within a post at the beginning of my blogging journey. So the reason I chose this image? Looking at the photo… Read More

NaNoWriMo 2016

  I’ve not been writing for very long, one month in fact and I’ve come across a post about the ‘National Novel Writing Month‘. This is something I have never heard of but having read about it I’m really excited and have decided to participate. After finding out what it entails I’ve gone through a series of emotions from wonder to fear to nervousness and of course excitement. Quite frankly it is scary as you have to its minimum of 50,000 words for your book to be classed as a novel. If you only… Read More

Flash Fiction – The Rock Cafe

    I stand by the counter making a cup of our finest Columbian roast espresso. The girl ordering, carries a pile of books under her arm and a haphazardly balanced messenger bag over her shoulder. She is a regular to the seaside café. Always comes in at 1.15pm. She comes in every Tuesday as it’s her free period at university, to make the most of her study period and says that the ambience of the cafe while watching the waves on the rocks gives her inspiration. She is studying to become a journalist… Read More
