Flash Week: Microbookends, FFF and AH

Well, I didn't have a really prolific week last week. Started some or thought I'd do a few more - like Finish That Thought and Thursday Threads - but in the end last week just saw me finishing Microbookends, Flash Fiction Friday and Angry Hourglass. The latter two are the ones I am keenest to try and do come what may!

Microbookends I couldn't format as I wanted as I wasn't sure how to put it into the correct HTML code as I wanted it presented in four columns. I had to present it as a single column instead. Ho hum. Anyway the way I wanted it to look is below. The piece as ever has to start and end with the prompted words - in this case Peace and Prize - and be between 90 and 110 words.

A-Z of War and Peace: X and Make Up

PeacePrize

I managed to get
Flash Fiction Friday done. And was quite happy with it. Though someone pointed out that the last minute addition of the footnote had taken me over the word count. Which is a shame because it didn't need the note - though I quite liked it. (more ho humming).

As for the
Angry Hourglass I've no ho humming. Just up against some very talented guys and gals (very very well attended by the Flash Dogs).

Poised Pen Anthology 2014 'Half Baked'

Half Baked

I am a member of a great little writing group in Liverpool called Poised Pen. Of course I am. Have been involved for just over a year now and it has been going from strength to strength.

New Cover (small)

One of this years highlights was always going to be having our anthology printed and it has been great to see. I was happy to be involved in the book, including the use of my photos for the cover. Of course that proved a double edge sword. Still, the cover was of the Fly in the Loaf pub sign, for it is here that we hold our meetings. Little did we know that between sending it to print and getting it back the pub would refit including getting rid of the sign. Never has a brand new book become outdated before it has even hit the streets!

I also endeavoured to get an electronic version up on Amazon too. That would be an e-book, or more precisely a Kindle ebook then. Boy it is not perfect, particularly a couple of the poems and I am sorry for that, but formatting for the kindle is not a matter of putting in tabs or spaces, more's the pity. But notwithstanding some of its limitations I must say I am very proud of the book our group has put together and seeing it on Amazon - out of date cover and all - is well boss!

If you fancy a copy, and a chance to read poems and short stories by 13 of our writers, then get thee to that there
evil behemoth with your 99p.
