Here is my entry for the Midsummer Night’s Dream writing competition. Just a bit of fun, 400 words exactly! I had a great time writing this, although trimming it from 600 to 400 words was a soul-destroying experience. After the contest is over, I might include the longer version here. I’d like to do more with […]
LOST Loose, flailing. The breadcrumbs snatched away, So I fumble blindly in the darkness. I see hands, many hands, But none reach out to help. Instead they dig, Churning up mud, searching for treasures As I drift past. All of us are alone, But only one of us is truly lost.
There was no way across. The rope bridge had fallen away, swallowed up by the thick fog below, and I was scared. Scared, because I was alone. Trapped. Cut off from the rest of the world. I considered turning back, retracing my steps through the forest, when I saw them up there. Two impossible figures, […]

Hello again, sorry things have been a little sparse recently. I’ve been up to all sorts of things that I’m sure I’ll get ’round to blogging about sometime this century (I hope). Here is my entry for this week’s ‘Mid-Week Blues-Buster‘, a song challenge. I felt obliged to enter, as I am a colossal metal-head […]
My third writing challenge entry today is the 55 Word Challenge – a story in 55 words or less using one or all three set picture prompts. Feeling ambitious, I’ve decided to attempt a piece using all three… The garden was weeping. Branches drooped and leaves sagged in the downpour, grey clouds hiding heaven from […]
Here is my addition to Horror Bites Challenge 4. I hope it scares you… She didn’t see them as trees. They were more like jagged splinters of wood piercing the earth like needles through skin. Despite the blue sky and the beaming sun, this place wasn’t beautiful. It was wrong. Hannah made her way […]
