Best Friends’ Wedding (Flash Fiction)

We met in primary school. I didn’t like her at first. I can’t recall exactly why now it was so long ago, I just know that I didn’t. The dislike didn’t last long. We began to talk one day in class and became bosom buddies in the space of one afternoon. That friendship endured throughout … Continue reading Best Friends’ Wedding (Flash Fiction)

Social Media Share-a-thon

It occurred to me recently that I haven't shared my social media details on here in a long while, so I'm going to use up a whole post in order to put that right. Some sites I use more than others as you can probably imagine, but I'll never say no to new friends and/or … Continue reading Social Media Share-a-thon

“You can talk to me”

This is another of my mental health awareness themed posts and focuses on the support offered by friends and loved ones to those who are going through times of mental unrest. Over the months, since I came clean about my mental health problems, the phrase for which this post is titled has been uttered and/or … Continue reading “You can talk to me”

ASAS: Survival of the Fittest–Chapter Seven

The flames danced with spirit as the fire grew in size and ferocity. It quickly engulfed the adjacent side of the cabin from which Ryan and Kas stood, who were waiting patiently for their moment to run. They could hear the excitable sounds of the lurchers as they were drawn towards the blaze in number. … Continue reading ASAS: Survival of the Fittest–Chapter Seven

ASAS: Survival of the Fittest–Chapter Six

“I saw what you did.” Ryan’s eyes snapped open as he awoke; he shot up to a sitting position. Kas was glaring at him through bloodshot eyes and broke into a violent coughing fit. It was loud enough to cause Ryan to wince. The lurchers would definitely hear if they were nearby. “The fuck are … Continue reading ASAS: Survival of the Fittest–Chapter Six

Living the Dream Part 23 (Worthless)

My latest offering in this series isn’t a very positive one. The prospect of worthlessness is very much a fact I’m having to face far more than I wish I had to. In recent times, my depression appears to have deepened. It’s deepened to a level I really hoped it wouldn’t. I don’t mean to … Continue reading Living the Dream Part 23 (Worthless)

Another Apparition (Poem)

Once again, I was fooled, By the bringer of the light; They held a torch aloft, To brighten up my night. They assured me they were genuine, As they held me in embrace; I allowed the glow to fill my soul; To set smiles upon my face. Little did I realise, They were just like … Continue reading Another Apparition (Poem)

Thank F**k That’s Over…

This review of 2018 is more a way of me taking stock of everything than telling all my readers about it. It’s a way of trying to make sense of what has been a pretty chaotic time. Where to start? At the beginning I suppose. The first couple of months of 2018 went like most … Continue reading Thank F**k That’s Over…

ASAS: Survival of the Fittest–Chapter One

The truck rumbled into another town midmorning the next day. It was just as well because they were practically running on fumes. The town was big enough to assume there’d be a petrol station and places in which to find food. The only problem was that there were lurchers—a lot of them! Kas had run … Continue reading ASAS: Survival of the Fittest–Chapter One

Depressed Mitch (Flash Fiction)

Kevin perched on his usual telephone wire and surveyed all that was happening around him. It had been a routine day for him so far. He’d been to the park that morning to fight against his fellow starlings and a couple of pigeons for the food thrown by the usual human. Pigeons were tough, but … Continue reading Depressed Mitch (Flash Fiction)
