Short Story Challenge 3 - Palingenesis

      Lets face it, I’ve had much worse things stuck to the bottom of my shoe but this is definitely a first. I was so preoccupied with not losing my footing whilst trudging through the undergrowth that I didn't even see what it was that I had stepped on.

Short Story Challenge 2 - Tomato Soup

      “No thanks, I’m on a diet”, she replied without looking.
      It wasn't quite the answer he had hoped for. Time for plan ‘B'. She had refused the cake, which he was almost certain was going to work, but surely she couldn’t refuse some champagne?

Short Story Challenge Outline

      So recently I did my first short story challenge.

      The idea is to ask people for suggestions of an opening sentence and then go on to write a (somewhat coherent) short story from that. The main point of it, of course, is to get more disciplined with my writing - but also it allows me to associate ideas and stories from other people’s random garblings and in turn, to practice my creative writing a little bit.

            “Honey, whatever you’re into… I’ll make it good for you.”
            Taking his hand, she started to guide it towards her ear once more but the priest hastily pulled free. There was an awkward pause.
            “I... I shouldn't be doing this”, he said shifting in his seat uncomfortably.

Shakespeare Double Bill

     No, this isn’t a joke – I really did watch two Shakespeare films in a row recently. Lovefilm why you so crazy like that?

Frenzy The Ninja B3ar

      Recently, I’ve started playing Call of Duty: Black Ops again.
      Firstly, because a friend of mine has still got my copy of Modern Warfare 3 (hey you need to give it back already, Sneaky!) – but also due to this one guy:

Not so Super 8

     Okay, so it’s been over a month since I last posted.
     As well as moving house and being busy with lots of work, I haven’t allowed myself much time to write – but I have, of course, been watching lots of films…
      But enough with the excuses – I’m getting back on to this writing ting!
