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 […]

#AtoZchallenge – reflections on a month of blogging

I’ve had a breather and it’s time for a little reflection on the A-Z challenge – the 26 posts on castles I wrote for April’s blogging challenge. This year was my second attempt – I participated last year on the theme of inspiration and with this in mind, I chose what I thought was a […]

A-Z blogging theme reveal

So, my chosen theme for the A to Z blog challenge is…. drum roll… fanfare…. Castles. Was that an anti-climax? It could easily have been cathedrals. I’m not an architect, nor a historian, but I love impressive old buildings. I’m in awe of the manpower and ingenuity that went into building such vast structures at […]

A-Z Challenge, the dilemma

  Now do I?  Again!? It’s tempting. I like challenges and it certainly is a challenge. I would need to plan ahead, as we’re on holiday in April. A theme would be useful to help motivate me. I’m kind of themeless at the moment. There is always the random thought of the day, except, by […]

Lost chapters

I woke last night in the middle of a dream. One of those intriguing, what happens next kind of dreams with lots of strange subliminal messages that I feel I ought to understand the meaning of but instead they leave me confused and frustrated. Trying to get back to sleep, I’d love to have jumped […]

What next?

After the flurry of blogging activity during April, May is quiet, which suits me as I’ve lots of writing and editing to do.  I’ve added a page listing all my A-Z posts on inspiration. As for this blog, I’ve taken a leaf out of my own theme for A-Z Challenge and having a guest. My […]

Where will Zed take me?

It came in a bright yellow wrapper and smelt divine; the lettering carved on one side and my challenge had been to lather it up so much, the lettering would smooth out and disappear, untraceable by my fingertips. The Zest soap bar would begin life in my childhood bathtub hard and finish up creamy and […]

My Yoghurt Pot Mash-up

I love yoghurt, especially the creamy and smooth kind. I can’t be doing with the plain, natural yoghurts. There has to be something in it: fruit, specifically and not stuck at the bottom, that’s lazy; why isn’t it mixed up? On the side in a fiddly tray? Nope, but I do love stirring, watching the […]

Xi – the panic post

X….. panic… panic.  Why didn’t I do XYZ first, get them over with and not be left staring at the useless letter.   Or is it? Where does X originate from? One moment, please….. Okay, I’m back. It’s Greek, except they borrowed it from the Phoenicians, the forgotten civilisation, and it’s derived from the letter Samekh. […]

Vitality.

Am I the only one who finds writing vital? It brings vibrancy to my life; vivacity and vigour like no other activity, except when I play music. Fed by my vivid imagination, I venture into a vacuum and fill it with my voice, my views, my vitality. Such verve is undiminished by darkness, unless I […]
