The hoarder

This week’s Friday Fictioneer’s prompt – hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields.   My gran was a hoarder. A gifted one. She believed everything had a purpose. To her family, what she stored in those shoeboxes and bags was somewhat abstract and generally the flotsam of life. However, Granny believed she kept objects of value. Ma fretted […]

See it? – #flashfiction

Friday fictioneers hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields.     “There, see it?” Sam pointed into the murky pond water. It was rusty, bobbing on surface and strangled by plastic bags. “What is it?” With two front teeth gone, Sam whistled his question. “A shopping trolley.” Jan remembered pushing one like it with Sam in the kiddie […]

Seeing the light – #flashfiction

This picture is rather dazzling. I almost succumbed to another geometrical tale, but thought of something else instead. “I’ve seen the light. I’m going to be a cab driver.” Billy had joined the army and left when he discovered how heavy the backpacks were. From there he’d become a pavement artist and lamented how the […]

Don’t Stop – #flashfiction

This week’s picture prompt from Friday Fictioneers hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. “Don’t stop. If you stop, they’ll fire you,” whispered her neighbour. She pedalled faster, spun the wheel and kept her head down. He walked past her station, the foreman. Every few minutes, he strolled by, whistling. The needle followed the line—even stitches—a perfect hemline […]

Patterns of life #flashfiction

Today’s contribution to Friday Fictioneers’ 100 word flash fiction blog hop brought to life by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields In perpetuity. Wasn’t that the commitment? Day after day of togetherness. Except Muriel had married a mathematician and one obsessed with fractals. The patterns she loved. He generated pictures, turning shapes into works of art, covering the walls […]

Re-calculating – #fridayfictioneers

Hundred words!  This week’s Friday Fictioneers’ post, hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields and the prompt…. Re-calculating! He’d begun the journey on a highway. Then, when an accident had barred his way, he’d followed the sage advice of his GPS. Re-calculating! He glared at the titchy screen and the red marker, which hadn’t moved. One road after […]

Going viral – #flashfiction

My contribution to Friday Fictioneers’ 100 word story – thank you to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields for hosting. Some wore balaclavas, others Halloween masks or nylon stockings. He chose a diving helmet. It wasn’t the most practical thing. He got stuck in windows. It was heavy, making climbing walls a challenge and it obscured his vision. “Why,” […]

The Dam – #flashfiction #fridayfictioneers

Welcome! My contribution to this week’s Friday Fictioneers flash fiction – 100 word story – hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. “Keep going,” Sam yelled. “We’ve got to save the town.” The line of stones shifted, some tumbled into the water. Sam’s gang worked hard to shore up the defences. The deadline was five o’clock. White froth […]

Left behind #flashfiction

This week’s contribution to Friday Fictioneer hosted by Rochelle Wisolf-Fields. When the whistle blew, the driver pointed at the clock and pleaded with him, “Now, man. Come on.” In response, he tipped his hat and bowed. “I’ve worked here forty years. Where will I go?” The steam spewed out of the engine and the wheels […]

Upnor castle: a delightful failure #AtoZchallenge

Although I lived in Kent for a few years, I’m ashamed to say I didn’t explore the county very much. A dismal failure on my part. I completely missed Upnor castle. Upnor is a late entry to the castle collection – 1559. Built on the banks of the Medway river, its location was strategic to […]
