Huge Update On It’s Way

So you know how I disappear from time to time and then come back with like a million-and-one new ideas? Well this ins't one of those times. I mean it kinda is... But it's different, I promise! After tons of deliberation and chewing over the fat, I've made the ACTUAL decision to stay home from … Continue reading Huge Update On It’s Way

Father’s Rage & Other Stuff

A while back, photography blogger, Fragglerocking, tasked me with writing a piece of flash fiction based on one of her snaps. The resulting short read ended up pretty sad, and wildly different from my typical POV and style. I'm used to writing from the center of the action, right there in the thick of it, … Continue reading Father’s Rage & Other Stuff

Argh, Chute! A Flash Fiction

I stumbled upon an awesome site today by the name of Carrot Ranch. They post all sorts of challenges and prompts for teeny-tiny pieces of fiction, with a 99 word limit. This week’s prompt was ‘Crazy,’ and I just had to give it a shot. It put me in mind of an analogy I saw … Continue reading Argh, Chute! A Flash Fiction

Morrisey’s Last Symphony

I’m over the moon to be hosted over at BeetleyPete’s blog today. His community are always so great and supportive with their comments 🙂 The flash fiction piece follows UK Royal Marine, Morrisey, in his final moments, as he bleeds out on an Afghan hilltop.

Morrisey’s Last Symphony
By Gary Holdaway.

Like most fresh recruits, Morrisey had grand visions of his military prowess on the field.With a Captain-America-like finesse he’d breeze through war zones with excellence and ease, quickly rising through the ranks to shine out among the others. Eventually he’d lead his own unit, and they’d claim victory after victory for his country.

Morrisey could not have been more wrong. He passed out of Lympstone by the skin…

The Cabin -Free Flash Fiction

Today I’m over at beetleypete’s wordpress account, sharing a story that, while not perfect in its execution, was fun to write and is hopefully fun to read.

He’s a great writer himself, and his blog is always a pleasure to scroll through. Once you’re done with this, I’d recommend checking out some of his own work. You won’t be disappointed!

The Cabin

In the time it had taken Dr Mark E. Redwood to trek the nine miles through dense woodland before finally arriving at the cabin, he had tripped at least six times, soaked his feet in a failed attempt to jump a small creek, and had picked up multiple scratches to his face and neck fighting through malicious low branches. He was useless when it came to the outdoors. Hopelessly, utterly useless. But he didn’t care. He had to…
