It’s always a gamble dealing with resurrection. Will it work, will it just fall flat. Well I’m happy to report that the resurrection of #MonsterMash for 2018 was a resounding success. Thanks to all who participated, whether that be with a story or just retweeting and sharing the stories that were posted.
Anyway as I’m still struggling with the written word I decided to revamp and recycle a couple of old tales.
As you all know (well if you’ve been keeping up with my posts that is) I threw in the towel during Nano and 50K words didn’t happen. But what did happen was a small selection of short stories and my return to the love of writing, so not a total loss.
So we are halfway through Nano and I’m so far behind the chances of completing the challenge are pretty much slim to none. I have completed one horror short which I am happy with, yes it needs work but that shouldn’t be too difficult. Continue reading →
So with me getting back to writing and everything I’m doing something ridiculously brave. I’ve entered a piece of flash fiction into a competition. I must be mad to think that a thing I wrote might beat probably hundreds if not thousands of entries but if I don’t grab these opportunities now, will I ever.
With the launch of this new site I wanted to give new subscribers the opportunity to read some of my work but the new site is very bare of stories. I could have copied over my old stories but to be honest that seemed a bit too much work. So I had the thought that I’d create a wee book of stories from old work. The bulk of this work was published in 2014 for Sirens Call eZine, an online horror magazine.
I have not written anything substantial for around 12months. I have dabbled with short horror flash fiction but basically the past year has been filled with a drought of inspiration. Many things contributed to this, life, lack of mojo, and general laziness. But I think the rot set in during NaNoWriMo 2015.
