Yet again, a superb memorable weekend, although Sunday could have gone either way had I not pushed myself.

Friday 13th and Seagull Poo

I used to be superstitious but not anymore (touch wood). Its 3pm and so far, a seagull shat on my car. That’s lucky right? Yesterday I finished an 1899-word story about baked beans. I am just through the first edit. I will chip away at it until its one sentence. It was supposed to be …

Where do I Get Inspiration?

Whenever I have an idea for a new story, I text message it to myself.  I have a few months’ worth. I’m in the Uni law library on a balmy Cardiff Saturday afternoon transferring them on to a PC.  I also take notes of snippets of conversations I hear when I’m out and about for …

400 Word Short Story

As promised, here is my short story which I’m sure you’ll agree, bizarrely won a competition. I only came up with the title of it seconds before I read it out. The Mile High Snub. What have you written on my back? Was how the argument started. It ended with… “And I don’t believe you’re …

Is It Really as Simple as Just stepping Out of You Mind Now and Then?

I like to think that being able to see my thoughts as just thoughts have got me through the last 48 hours with relative ease. They were just admin days, things that I don’t really have to do. I think some people call it work. Real life stuff annoys me and sometimes, although it’s getting …

Four Publishers Knocked on My Door Today Asking if I Had Any Stories They Could Print.

Obviously I told them where to go. ” I’m going to self-publish” I yelled as they fled down the garden path. I have decided to take the not easy route I mumbled to myself as I slammed the door and climbing over the mountain of unopened rejection letters. So, none of that happened.. yet. You …

Tails For Wales Never Fails

If you’re not a football or rugby fan or just hate Wales, you can skip this paragraph. Sobbing into my hot lemon water as I recall for the countless times today how Wales were stuffed on Saturday by Denmark. I won’t ever eat their bacon again. They just couldn’t let it be at 2-0 could …
