Mid-week Musing

red wine
fruit blanket on tingling tongue
dulling the synapses
comprehension takes a step back


A New Stone

I’ve had a new ‘stone’ published today on A Handful of Stones.

Click on the link to have a look. Or, just look at the little ‘widget’ on the right. It’s there too!

Mid-week Musing

i hate the sting
i hate the process
i love the result
why wasn’t man created
the shaveless human being?

Seeing the Light

breakthrough by Scyza - http://www.sxc.hu/profile/Scyza

I had a submission rejected for a short story a few days ago. They said the ending was too predictable.
This was a fair point really as it was too predictable. I thought it at the time but I figured it would be okay.

It wasn’t.

Which is fine. I should have done more at the time. I should have pushed the boat (or thought) out a little bit more.

I’ll have another crack soon and I’ll  listen and act on my own criticism before I send it off this time rather than agreeing with it when I receive the identical criticism back.

Don’t you just love these  ‘Doh!’ moments?
