Top 3 Stories – March 2015

How is it April already? I suppose it means I’m still having fun…

Mind you, having to pick three stories out of the 31 I wrote in March was, again, not much fun. To limit the selection, I decided I wouldn’t consider any story I’d written for Mondays Finish the Story, Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers or Friday Fictioneers.

  1. Morag
  2. Runaway (pt. II)
  3. The Hitman

Do you agree? Do you think other stories deserve to be here? As always, I’d love to hear your thoughts.


My fifth and final Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge post is inspired by the creepy chap on the left – this weeks photo prompt for FFfAW which, I’m sure, will inspire all sorts of scary Clown stories. Thank you Lynn for nominating me for the challenge – it’s been great fun.

And my final nomination to join the challenges goes to – YOU! Leave a comment to let me know you fancy the challenge. According to the rules, you are supposed to post a photo and a story (though the interpretation of story is broad: could be a poem, a short paragraph talking about the photo, fiction, non-fiction, whatever suits your blog…). You’ll also have to nominate another blogger to join the challenge in each post, but nomination doesn’t mean they have to join – it’s an invitation, really. So if you want to play, tell me.

Five Photos, Five Stories – Day 5: Fooled


‘Have you heard, guys? We’re getting new uniforms. Effective immediately, apparently they’re on the way,’ Jerry says.

I see through it straight away, but Belle buys it. She looks at the photo of the clown. The horror that grips her is written all over her face. She looks down at the sleek uniform she’s wearing, all black but for the slate-grey apron. She takes off her hipster glasses and daps at her eyes with a napkin.

‘No, no, no. They can’t do this to me.’

‘Calm down, Belle. What’s the date today?’

Belle screams. Jerry and I howl with laughter.
