PHOTO PROMPT © Dale Rogerson   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.   A single rose, lies amongst rotting debris, under the icicle encrusted tree. Detective Ingram crouches by the yellow marker. poking the leaves with the end of his pen, held by a gloved hand. He leans away and wrinkles his nose. Moving them aside, a ringed finger protrudes from the soil, where the cadaver spaniel alerted them to the… 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

I’m Writing a Novel!

  I’ve wanted to write a novel for a long time. When I was a child I would write stories on scraps of paper, read them and throw them in the bin never thinking they were good enough. I never told anyone about it either, just a handful of people I know who are close to me. I’m now at a point in my life where I want to revive that childhood dream and actually write a novel and become a published writer. I’ve been writing on this blog since last year… Read More

Daily Prompt – Time

  So I was a little stumped for a post and thought I would go to the daily prompt for inspiration for today’s post! When I realised what today’s prompt was, I have to say I was pleased! It actually gives a reason to go over past issues I’ve had when I was growing up and hurtful comments I had while at school!   Angel Eyes I arrive at school on a normal day wondering what today will bring. The morning was the start to a new week and the class were… Read More

Flash Fiction – The Stranger

  The feeling of unease is intense as I walk along hiding in the shadows of trees. The noise is there just behind me beating amongst the rain as it pelts hard against my skin. Footsteps, gaining on me, getting louder and echoing in my mind causing panic as I imagine the terror the other girls have felt before me. Forgetting my umbrella was the first mistake I made as I left in a rush. The second mistake was leaving my phone. The phone that right now could save me from the… Read More

Camp NaNoWriMo

  What is Camp NaNoWriMo?   July brings up Camp NaNoWriMo, a month of scheduled writing to reach targets we set on any writing projects we may have.

NaNoWriMo | November is the Start of Something Big!

November is National Novel Writing Month. I decided to write a book a little over three months ago and have thrown myself into the world of writers and authors full on and at full speed. It is something I have always wanted to do but never felt the confidence to be able to go ahead and chase the dream.The inspirational time came when I was sat talking to my daughter in a launderette while folding our summer clothes on holiday in Cornwall. I told her that I wanted to write a book…. 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 – Morning Coffee

I pick up my Latte in one hand lacing my fingers around the handle and cradle it with the other. I take small sips while peering over the top. He is exquisite. Tall, tanned with short brown hair that is flicked to the side. Dark brown piercing eyes. He wears a suit jacket that reaches his belt and underneath black trousers, white shirt with the top two buttons undone. He is ridiculously wet from the rain and I notice a small drop of water make its way down a strand of hair and splash… Read More
