Short Stories

Hey, Well, I've been neglecting the blog lately. I've been getting into writing fiction, short stories mostly, so haven't had the time to dedicate to both. I thought I would share a few of them here, killing two birds with one stone. I appreciate anyone who takes the time to read them. I'll post each … Continue reading Short Stories

In Defence Of The Offensive

‘I guess Charles Manson will never get the chance now to fulfill his lifelong ambition of starting a family. Oh, hang on......’ Reading online this morning about the death of Charles Manson, I immediately started thinking of a funny status to post on Facebook. This is the result, it isn’t that great, but it got … Continue reading In Defence Of The Offensive

Scatty Sunday Stories

‘Insanity is knowing that what you’re doing is completely idiotic, but still, somehow, you just can’t stop it’ I think we can probably all agree that there are some proper mad bastards in the world. People who, for one reason or another, do things that are so bizarre, we can’t fully comprehend their thinking processes … Continue reading Scatty Sunday Stories

Christmas Shopping – The Ultimate Guide

Step 1 - Don’t fucking bother. Why put yourself through it?

‘I still miss you’ Did you think of anyone while you read that sentence? Did a particular person come straight into your head? Do you have that one person from your past that you still miss? I don’t mean obsess over or constantly crave like a junkie tweaking for their next fix, but just someone … Continue reading Like An Idiot Misses The Point

Here Lies This Conversation….

Everything is abbreviated, people don’t converse; they just say ‘k’ or ‘lol’ and tag each other in memes … Continue reading Here Lies This Conversation….

Taking A Dim View

This is my attempt at personification, which means giving inanimate objects a physical presence. The setting I’m going to use is the view from my bedroom window. It’s a bit of a weird one for me, so feel free to skip it. I’m just trying to broaden my range a bit and develop different areas … Continue reading Taking A Dim View

Poetry or not poetry? That is the question.

About six months ago I wanted to try something that I had been calling ‘poetic prose’, which I had seen on Instagram. I don’t know what the literary term for the style actually is, but I often find that in the absence of knowledge, making stuff up as you go along will do the job. … Continue reading Poetry or not poetry? That is the question.
