A Child’s First Winter

Snow Ghosts” is a little poem which I hope captures some of the wonder of a child’s first winter.

On a serious note.

Ah, well, at last, something completely different.

Over the past few months I have been snagged again by BBC Scotland’s “Scotland 2016” each evening, Mondays to Thursdays. This current affairs show is followed immediately by BBC UK’s “Newsnight” programme.

This viewing has been running in its groove, on and off, or a few years and has become a habit, if not yet another addiction.

Generally the reports do not make for happy viewing.

As has been said, what goes in, must. . .regurgitate?

Maybe I will revert to my old ways and drift back to La La Land there to watch old films, that comfy place where I already know the Happy Ending.

In the meantime.... Try “Then and Now

Norbert’s Law” is a tale about a bent coppers.

Nearly true, from me to you!

Today I have added three tales, each nearly true.

Winter Sun Seekers” tells of our trip to Tenerife in January 2016.

Wee Wullie” tells of two overheard conversations on a bus.

Brook” recalls an incident from my childhood, when I was 10 years old.

Dive in a enjoy!

Two tales for small children

Today I have added two read too stories for small children.

Perhaps they might be suitable for bedtime reading?

The first is called “Millie meets Ethan” and is a tale about who gets a birthday present of a huge cuddly toy called Millie the Spaniel.

The second is called “Harry Tallboy and Fairy Swish” and is about a boy who loves trains.

Both are available in hard copy, (free of charge), just let me know using the Contact Form.

A Christmas tale and another upgrade.

Today I have added a short tale called “Stocking Filler”.

I have also added an upgraded version of “The Glasmigos”, a version which has benefited from the editing of my friend Kareth Paterson.

Two new tales and an upgrade

Today I have added “Race Night Nerves“ and “Best Served Cold”.

Both are tales of revenge.

I have also replaced “Fidelity“ with a new version edited by Kareth Paterson, a friend from Writers’ Circus who has been toiling in the fields - nae jungle - of my verbose prose for some time now.

This version is much tighter, fewer errors, I hope.

Any remaining clangers are of course down to me.

A winter’s tale

This is an off-beat tale of an urban fox in winter.

At 1,000 words,”While we were sleeping” can be devoured with morning coffee and a naughty biscuit.

A mini-thriller

I have added “State Secret”.

This is a piece which seemed easy to write but initially was full of holes.

It has been greatly improved by the excellent editing of my friend Kareth Patterson, from Writers’ Circus. Any remaining typos etc are mine.

I could not resist adding a role for Maisie Kaywood.

Perhaps will see Dymitri of this story on an another outing soon?

It about a chap called Kent Cant who is plagued by a problem of negative thoughts.
