6 word story challenge – A Weeks Worth

I’ve loved doinmagician-1646795_640g all the images and everything but I’m getting stuck into a revision course and NaNoWriMo prep so I’m running behind a bit…



Day 15: In the Shed – Serpent skins like discarded death robes

Day 16: Beware – Strangers with secret past watching you

Day 17: Black Cat – Yellow eyes follow, claws flex. Pounce.

Day 18: Wicked – Nasty thoughts, nasty deeds, happy me

Day 19: Sleepy Hollow – Tantalising flitter of leaves belie horror

Day 20: Dracula – Rising at midnight. Fuel before sunrise

Day 21 It’s Alive! – Flat line, soul has left. Then breathe.


This Week’s Quote

Unhappy families are conspiracies of silence. The one who breaks the silence is never forgiven.

Day 7 – Six Word Story Challenge



*I’m a bit late starting but better late than never!*

Out of the Ashes

color-1544543_640I’ve been absent for sometime. It’s been a horrendous couple of months that has been filled with fear and more sadness. The  earthquake that devastated Amatrice and other villages on the 24 August has rocked our little idyll. At only 35 miles away from the epicentre we were shaken from our beds and the aftershocks continue even now. But we still have a roof over our head and our hearts still beat loudly.

Then two weeks later, Simon’s only sister died after a very short but aggressive illness. It was such a shock. Her absence leaves a huge gaping hole which will be impossible to fill. But she will live on, in her children and grandchildren and we’ve adopted an orphaned ‘quake’ kitty, named in honour of Liz and her family. POOTiE – an acronym of Phil, Olivia, Oscar, Thomas (in honour of) Elizabeth is a feisty and courageous character.

I’m hoping the regeneration, in every sense of the word, will begin soon.
