This is my second attempt at the BlogBattler’s January writing prompt “bucket”. My first effort proved to be a little too experimental even for my tastes. I might yet find a way to fix it and if I do I’ll post it. In the meantime, my second attempt is in every sense shit (~1090 words, a tad over the limit).

Here’s my take on Peter Wyn Mosey’s – writing prompt #18. Thanks, Peter, I went with the 2nd writing prompt “Small things have the biggest effects”. There’s a bit of serendipity at play here as the idea for this came to me while walking Archer this morning. When I saw the prompt well … it spurred me on to scribble something down. (~450 words).

Here’s my take on Carol J Forrester’s monthly speculative fiction prompt. This months prompt is a very intriguing photo with so many possibilities, I look forward to reading the other great takes to see where other writers have taken it (~1000 words).

It’s a new year and my first stab at a 2020 writing prompt is courtesy of Peter Wyn Mosey. Nice to get back to some writing after a couple of weeks of excess. I went with the 3rd writing prompt “You have beautiful eyes, it’s a shame”. Sounded like a bit of fun. This take is a bit of a tangent to my epically floundering WIP (1000 words).
