Re: Flash Fiction

This week's rolls are....
Mask, Flower, Question

Something caught his eye and he crossed over to the dressing table. Beside a single orange flower lay a masquerade mask, neatly cut from plain brown paper. He fingered the stem of the flower. Was this a threat? A question? A warning? (42 words)

Re: HP Themed Parties

I think I speak for everyone ever when I say… NY at Arianna's place! Those games sound sensational and really fun. We once had a HP themed Girl Guide camp where we were sorted into houses based on what tents we were (even there when it was totally random, I still ended up as a lion) and each house w...

This week's items are… Book, fountain, apple For Example: She inched along the branch and started as a shower of apples thumped to the ground. She held her breath. Nothing. She reached up to swing herself through the window. The book lay on a table. At last. Hurrying over, she opened it. A fountain ...

This Week's Items are.... Keyhole, Speech, Dice With the pick in the keyhole, she took a moment to breathe. Even through the wall, she could feel the tension outside building: the speech was nearly over. The crowd must feel it too. The future was waiting, like a dice balanced on a corner. She had to...

January Prompt: Inspiring Inventions

Then he ran over to another machine, a small shiny affair that kept going phut- phut-phut-phut-phut, and every time it went phut, a large green marble dropped out of it into a basket on the floor. At least it looked like a marble. -Roald Dahl, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Inventions and fabulo...

What TV Shows are You Looking Forward To in 2019?

TV doesn't necessarily slot neatly into years like films do as many shows will be half way through a season/series at the moment. That being said, there are still plenty of shows that are returning or being freshly released this year. Are there any you're hotly anticipating? Or, are you planning to ...

Reaching Out to Authors

I just finished a re-read of a novel by one of my favourite authors and I was feeling such an upsurge of emotions that I fired off a tweet to thank him for sharing the story (This isn't like me at all:usually I'm shy... yes, I can hear you sniggering, it's actually true). I've interacted with the sa...

Re: Representation

Great topic, Joey! I'm very hard to please with representation: I complain when it's not there and I'm never satisfied when it is. As a blind person and also a survivor of a very high profile illness, I don't think I've ever found a book, TV show or film that has come close to speaking to my experie...

Beyond the Source

The literary nerd in me was super excited and apprehensive that Margaret Attwood will be releasing a sequel to The Handmaid’s Tale. The book won’t have anything to do with the continuation of the saga as seen in season 2 of the TV adaptation (we’re not even sure if any of the characters from the ori...
