Re: Flash Fiction

This week's words are:

necklace, sunrise, potion

She walked along the beach at sunrise, carefully scanning for sea glass that she could use for a necklace or bracelet. Pausing to watch the colours in the sky change and brighten, she sipped at her coffee as if it was a magical potion. [44 words]

Re: Book Review: The Bear and the Nightingale

I read this book because of Joey's review. It's amazingly lovely and so richly written. I could feel the cold of the winters, the warmth of that stove. The details of the life, of what people did, how they acted -- it's totally amazing. I don't want to say much of the story itself. Suffice it to say...

Re: Flash Fiction

December begins with these words:

harp, time, game

Taliesin ghosted his fingers over the strings of the harp. It was almost time for the game to be done. Soon he would be with Sara again. Pukwudji, catching Taliesin's thought, nodded cheerfully, a wide grin on his face. [39 words]

Re: Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald - Screenplay

I've read the book. "Oh. My." It's totally not what I expected. There is a richness and fullness of sweep of story which I didn't anticipate at all. Obviously there must be sequels. When is the next movie out. ?! Some of the events, though, totally surprised me. Sure, I'd seen the thing in the littl...
