Tell me the story of why this room is empty!

Everything.
They took everything.
Not one fixture or fitting left to adorn the walls of this now bare shell of a room.
“If the bank are chucking us out, we aren’t leaving a thing, not even the carpet!” Rhys exclaimed.
They left, but not before unearthing a floorboard…that would make them think!

WRITESPIRATION #115 52 WEEKS IN 52 WORDS WEEK 19 – The Right Place To Write

Sacha’s prompt this week for #Writespiration.

This week, I want to get to know you. Pretend money is no object, describe your perfect office or writing location, or make it up, make it random or describe the craziest place you’ve worked.

I wrote this 52-word piece first… Maybe the craziest place I have written…

Sitting here, right now is probably the loudest writing spot I use!
For the last two years, I manage to squeeze in an hour’s writing time at my children’s Dhol Lesson!
Imagine… Between four and twelve large drums beating, often not in time, providing me with inspiration… and often a headache too!

Then the drums provided me with inspiration to write a 52-word poem too! (Hope this is allowed Sacha!)

As a writer I have no home
I have no writerly fixed abode
In the dining room or on my bed
I scribe the stories in my head
My phone, tablet, laptop too
Occasionally, while on the loo!
But to have a space that’s truly mine
Now that would simply be divine!

WRITESPIRATION #112 52 WEEKS IN 52 WORDS WEEK 16 – Backwards -sdrawkcaB!

Oh Sacha, you evil task master!!!! What have you got us doing this week??

Your challenge is to write your story using the weekly theme/prompt and write it in just 52 words…. EXACTLY, no more, no less.
Backwards.
BUT, in addition to that, I want you to write your story backwards…!

Seriously??!!

Ok, so I wasn’t sure, word for word backwards? Sentences backwards? Reflected backwards???

Here’s what I came up with, in several forms! And all 52 words!!!!!

Backwards sentences…

The discussion about changing her surname was always going to happen, but there was no way she was going from Portia Peters to bloody Portia Carr!!!!!
The marriage proposal came soon after.
It had been a few years since they started dating.
Tim stared back sullenly.
“Jeez! You’re so backwards!” Portia huffed.

Word for word backwards…

And in case that made no sense whatsoever… The original!

“Jeez! You’re so backwards!” Portia huffed.
Tim stared back sullenly.
It had been a few years since they started dating.
The marriage proposal came soon after.
The discussion about changing her surname was always going to happen, but there was no way she was going from Portia Peters to bloody Portia Carr!!!!!

OMG Sasha, that was tough!!!

writespiration-2017

So, to the prompt! Remember, in 52 words… no more, no less!

This week I want you to write an advert for your own mother…

Well, here goes!

COULD YOU BE MY MUM?
Warm and cuddly individual, full of love and kind words.
A whizz in the kitchen, able to provide all necessities in a moment’s notice.
Firm when needed, and fun at all other times.
Oh, wait, scrap that, I have one just like that, or better, at home!

WRITESPIRATION #110 52 WEEKS IN 52 WORDS WEEK 14

Sacha’s back with her 52 words prompt for #writespiration

Write about the girl that wore the black hood.

20170405_111613

Hood pulled down low, she walked past me.
What was she hiding?
A gust of wind threatened to whip the hood back and she grabbed it, biting the side of it between her teeth to secure it.
But not before I caught a glimpse of the bruising…
God, I’ll kill that bastard!
