I've just written the first (of a few planned) sex scenes in my manuscript. It is not a 'door closed' book where the reader feels only the chemistry but details are left to the imagination. There is a lot of advice out there about writing such scenes. Some people believe there are rules one should… Continue reading It’s cold outside – do you need warming up? Let’s talk sex…
Giving myself rare reading time of other writer’s posts and some are just too good NOT to share …. I love this poem!
My memories will fade one day
my eyes will shine less bright
and into dark I’ll surely slip
but you’ll remain my light
The best of me I hope I gave
My smile, my laugh my frown
from good and bad, your path I shaped
you’res the thing’s I’ve handed down
Your hand I help, your head I kissed
scraped knee and fever soothed
beside your bed all night I sat
a heart once hard so moved
And seasons pass, I watch and smile
you clamber, fight and strive
too quick to run before you walk
eyes bright and so alive
Each year that passes I embrace
such change and watch you grow
my hand let go you walk alone
and deep inside I know
Too soon my time will surely pass
alone you’ll be but find
your joy and hope and always feel
the love we leave behind
Iain Kelly never fails to deliver when it comes to pieces of flash fiction. I'd not heard of this Sunday Photo Fiction and may have a go myself shortly 🖐🏼
.... whose Christmas Tree only made it as far as the garden? This is precisely the sort of thing Japanese Monks would not allow to happen. They never allow a no-longer-needed item to merely congregate with further objects of past usage. They give away, recycle, burn, break down. They see items no longer needed by… Continue reading Ok, hands up …
I didn't have those posh mushrooms, nor many of the ingredients you used. But, I did have two eggs. So I proceeded to make an omelette of sorts yesterday (for lunch because I forgot breakfast - too busy mending rugs 🙄). And it filled my belly for a very long time and I typed and… Continue reading It’s your fault, 2-egg Joseph!
Her feet wouldn't move; welded to the floor they were. She knew she needed to leave the bedroom, wanted to most desperately. But those feet were stuck in mud, or concrete. She looked down to check but the pink socks with the dirty fluffy soles were quite free of shackles. His voice - hoarse from… Continue reading When your heartbeat is the only thing you can hear …
I love that shutterbug a) shared this with us today, but b) gets side-tracked like me.
Turn the sound up really loud, and lose yourself.
Tears were dripping off my jaw before the video was even half way through; but that’s because I’m a bit emotional today – for no good reason – and this just melted me. xxx
You have to love the internet. Somehow you begin looking up recipes and end up on a completely different topic an hour later, still hungry and wondering what to make for supper. Anyway, I thought I would share this incredibly beautiful video with you. If you have 3 minutes to spare, it’s worth checking out.
Allegedly. This weekend onwards for at least a week. Siberian winds and icy temperatures such as we haven't experienced in recent years in the UK for longer than a day or two. Let's make a lasagne while we talk weather. Being a farmer's wife, the weather has always featured in our day, many times a… Continue reading Armageddon Ice-age is coming ..
As promised, Harlequin Mills & Boon did indeed send me some feedback today on that potential first chapter and synopsis which I rather rushed in order to submit before the competition deadline last Thursday. Their email is a reassuring mix of helpful tips where I have let myself down and positive praise - they like my… Continue reading When rejection leads to improvement
