Dear Readers

I’ve just had a chance to catch up on my emails (it’s been manic here getting ready, unready, ready for Christmas) and I’ve just seen I had another flash fiction story of mine accepted for publication on most excellent shortness of breadth site, The Drabble.

If you wish or would like to check my story out,  it would be thrilled to see you over there  supporting me and other authors.

Dear Readers, and Writers, and Followers,

I have been away from social media for a few days, taking a breather after that versatile blogger award, enjoying the warm weather here in England, road cycling a bit (really, a lot) and when I woke this morning I found another flash fiction story of mine had been accepted, and published, in The Drabble.

The style of my story is a bit different (really, a lot). I would love to know what you think of this latest non self-published flash fiction story, in a comment here, or a comment over there on The Drabble, where there are tons of great flash fiction stories all waiting to be read and enjoyed without costing you anything but a minute of your time.

Take care.

Beyond Time

Dear Followers

I woke up to some lovely news this morning. I hope you don’t mind me sharing it with you?

Another flash fiction story of mine, Beyond Time, has been accepted, and published today in The Drabble. I was speechless, but not anymore; I’m a writer. 🙃

Follow the previous link(s) to read my story and maybe leave a like or a comment, if you feel so inclined.

Happy flash fiction reading and writing.

Take care.

As the title of this post might suggest, for the last week I have not become wet and dirty by movement into or through muddy water – although that has been the case more often than not this year and last year, in the Lake District, whilst walking the dogs. No, for the last week, I have immersed myself in drabbles (a drabble is a fully formed story, upto one hundred words, complete with a beginning, middle and end, a theme/message, and/or that emotional nudge/shove) by reading every story there is to offer over on And, as thedrabble was recently one year old, and they publish a story nearly every day, there are hundreds of stories to choose from.

Why not take a look, too. These stories are a perfect pitstop in life’s never-ending race.
