What is Fake News & Russian Language Lessons?

“Gran, what is fake news?” “Well, little darling, it used to be called changing your mind, and……” “Your Gran’s, got it all wrong, sweethheart. Listen to your Grandad. “It means, being well aware that every word you tweet goes around the world in seconds and affects millions of lives - waiting until... Sign in to see full entry.

And The Winner Is……….

The only reason a church was included, was because I needed a high point to start the tale. My church has a balcony, ergo it was going to be in a church. The irony is that I’d considered the local mall, as it has two floors, but because of a recent shooting in a mall, I discarded that idea. Since... Sign in to see full entry.

Decision Time.

In alphabetical order, many thanks to BC-A; C C T; Corbin_ Dallas; MOEC; RPresta; Shams-i-Heartsong, and TAPS. Your input over my confusion was much appreciated, and, believe it or not I have taken your advice. BC-A advised me to do my own thing. C C T said that he liked style 1, but if I could...

Style Explanation

You are all overdue an explanation, and a large THANK YOU. The reason I asked you to let me know which style you liked best was because of a severe attack of confusion. The first style was the way the story came to mind, and how I typed it. Style 2 was my first attempt at editing. I was reasonably... Sign in to see full entry.

A Reversing Squirrel?

If you wake up feeling like death any morning and you want something to pick you up and make you laugh, let nature help. First of all, do what we did. Have a tree cutting firm chainsaw all the branches overhanging cables and driveways. Let them get rid of the debris by shredding the limbs and leafs.... Sign in to see full entry.

Humor Style 3

Preface to prologue. 250 words When the.410 shot shattered the church ceiling, the congregation screamed, and the minister tutted. “Liz, Liz, I know my sermons can be long but are they that bad? I’ll take your shotgun and explosive vest until after the service.” “I’m looking for Brodie, and when I... Sign in to see full entry.

Mystery, Thriller Style 2

Preface to Prologue - 250 words Martin Brodie hadn’t expected to die like this. Perhaps riding his classic Bonneville, or being tipped out of the hot-air balloon as it smashed into the treetops - that had been close - but never in a church. The irony wasn’t lost on him. Dying in a church would save... Sign in to see full entry.

Aw chute!

Our plan for the holiday was simple. Sit on the front deck, a cold beer in hand, and watch the tourists suffering in the heat. We live on a tourist route, with the lake on the opposite side of the road. It goes without saying that we live on the wrong side of the road, but we like it because we can...

Reporter Style 1

Some Bloggers have already read this banal baseline model. The preface to the prologue. 250 words. The sharp crack of gunfire was the last sound Martin Brodie expected to hear on a church balcony during a Sunday sermon. The second unexpected event was having ceiling plaster raining down on him. He... Sign in to see full entry.

An Opinion Post?

I’d like to conduct an experiment, using you talented writers as guinea pigs. Like other people on Blogit I’ve written for National Novel Writing Month. I have a MUG and a T-SHIRT to prove that I wrote the 50,000 words in a month. (I proudly wore that t-shirt around town for a month until I realised... Sign in to see full entry.
