Flash Fiction Post 101 – Ignorance is Bliss

Hi Everyone. This week I have been very busy trying to complete the 2017/2018 financial accounts for my wife, Sandi’s business. There’s a lot to do so I haven’t had much time to write. So today, as my story for this week, I have another of my 12 in 12 stories. This story was my entry for August 2018. It had to be 1200 words long. The ‘prompt’ for this story was ‘I never knew…… […]


Thought for the Day – 22 November 2018

Hi everyone. I have been working on the next installment of the serialized novel but it’s not done yet so today I have another story from 12 in 12 – my entry for June 2018. The ‘prompt’ for this story was ‘Forbidden Places’ and it had to be 1800 words long. It’s one of my satirical stories so I hope it makes you think and smile at least a little bit. Enjoy! The story is […]
