Dinosaur Wee

Morwenna, are you feeling safe? I don’t understand. Don’t understand what? Anything! Years ago, when I was very ill, and was living in a psychiatric residential care home, if one of the support-workers caught me looking a certain way, they’d put a hand on my shoulder and softly say, Morwenna, are you feeling safe? AndContinue reading “Dinosaur Wee”

Welcome, Niki Kamerzell!

From Niki’s #WIP … Ember—literally kicking and screaming—was dragged to the other side of the room. Her mother reached the kitchen counter and picked up her drink while Ember tried to free her hair. Sara sipped the whiskey mixed with orange juice. She thought no one realized it was booze. Ember managed to wiggle away,Continue reading “Welcome, Niki Kamerzell!”

(D)Evolution …

The second is that I’ve been in existential crisis. Again. Then, last night I watched Dinosaurs: The Final Day; today I’m compelled toContinue reading “YOLO”

Living the Dream

I was chatting with a friend in the pub at lunchtime the other day, while he tried to get the fire he’d started in the hearth roaring for the evening (he works behind the bar – he’s not a pyromaniac, to my knowledge). That’s actually true, but it works as a metaphor (funny how thatContinue reading “Living the Dream”

Welcome, Gail Aldwin!

From Gail’s #WIP, The Girl and the Tutor… It was well after five o’clock when Stephanie prepared to leave the office. Glancing through the window, a great belly of cloud suggested a downpour was likely. She opened her desk drawer expecting to see her foldable umbrella tucked beside the desk tidy which always contained aContinue reading “Welcome, Gail Aldwin!”
