Flash Fiction Post 134 – Rainbow

Morning Readers. Back from a great holiday, I must admit that I’ve been battling to get back to work, and my writing has been the biggest casualty. I thought of the title for today’s story over a week ago, but I took a while to come up with an idea for the content. It features James Blind, the man from AUNTI, in another of his assignments, where he behaves differently from his usual blood-thirsty approach. […]


Flash Fiction Post 130 – Get it out of Your System 1

Morning all. I’ve been trying to come up with a story for this week for the last couple of days, but with no ideas. Then, this morning I woke up with a story in my head. Weird, right? Anyway, as soon as it got light I sat down and got busy.  The story is called Get it Out of Your System. Hope you enjoy. Find all the Messages to Government, Flash Fiction stories and “Thoughts […]

Flash Fiction Post 117 – The Elephant in the Room

Morning Readers. Today I’m delivering my hardest story to write so far. I got the idea but didn’t know anything about the topic. So, I’ve been researching like crazy and then trying to make a story out of it.  The result is a real life thriller called The Elephant in the Room. Enjoy!

Flash Fiction Post 113 – It Takes One to Know One

Morning everyone. I hope you’re having a great weekend. Mine’s been mixed. The Lions lost and so did the Blitzboks, but Federer and Man U both won. On average that’s… well, average! And it’s better late than never for my story this week. I’ve been tangled up last week with Vat Returns and Provisional tax payments and getting all my paperwork ready to capture the 2018/19 financials for my wife’s company. So writing has been […]


Flash Fiction Post 107 – Only the Good Die Young 1

Afternoon all. Nearly back to normal after the break and back to work. It’s taken me a couple of days to reset my brain and get my paperwork back in order so now I’ve got another story for you. It’s my final 12 in 12 entry for 2018 – a return to my James Blind, the Man from AUNTI character. This is a thriller with a nasty twist in the end and I had 1200 […]


Flash Fiction Post 99 – The Felcan Distraction

Morning All. This morning I have a little bit of fun to offer as my story for this week. And I mean ‘a little bit’. This story was my 12 in 12 entry for July 2018. And the ‘little bit’ was that it had to be only 300 words long. Do you know how difficult it is to write a whole story in so few words? It’s said that a long story takes a long […]

Flash Fiction Post 72 – A Walk in the Sun

Morning All. I’m working on this post in Tayport, which is close to Dundee in the East of Scotland. I’m here visiting my sister. The morning is overcast, grey, cold and wet but the view from the river-facing windows is spectacular – out over the River Tay to the city of Dundee and the hills and woods beyond. Not more than 20 meters from the windows is Tayport’s marina, filled with yachts and motor boats. […]
