I’ve had a go at the latest writing challenge by Christopher Fielden and Allen Ashley, the aim is to write (over) descriptively. As ever, this type of contrarian writing is a lot of fund to do.

Mine is number 77!

Why not have a go? When a 100 is reached they will be published in an anthology, with the proceeds going to a good charitable cause.

Who doesn’t like a bit of Nonsense? I’ve just taken part in the Nonsense Writing Challenge, the brief was basically to write a Nonsense story in under 200 words.

The details are here, my effort, ‘Troubled Waters’ is number 84!

Out now! The Four Seasons anthology by Kind of a Hurricane Press! Nothing to do with Frankie Valli, this is a collection of poems and stories on the theme of seasons and the effects they have on people. This includes my own story ‘The Quickening of Seasons’, about the effects of an environmental apolcalypse on the retail industry.
Also worth checking out for Allen Ashley‘s poem ‘Summer on Pluto’, and many other exciting pieces of seasonal writing.

My flash fiction ‘Schadenfreude’ has just been released in the themed anthology from Kind of a Hurricane Press, Life is a Rollercoaster.

The brief was to write a story on the theme of amusement parks.  My story is a bit of a satire, not an attraction you’d want to ride on…
