The Crow of Nine-World is no longer on this blog, since he’s in one of my flash fiction collections–Critters and Crises, probably. Although there are two stories about him… I wonder what the other one is called? Oh yes. Anyway,
Cliff edge. How to write this one without being predictable? Memories of a real cliff edge came back to me. Let’s see how it goes. My thanks as always to KL Caley at New2Writing.com for continuing the #writephoto prompt each
Arch is the prompt for #writephoto this week. It’s a lovely photo by KL Caley, and gave me several ideas, but only one that persisted. I’m having trouble fitting everything in at present. Editing Zanzibar’s Rings is competing now with
Submerged Antique Vase is connected to one I did a couple of years ago now, to the WEP prompt Antique Vase. As that’s now in Greed and Retribution you can’t look it up (although you can buy that collection on
Rough Steps is my take on this week’s writephoto–of a stairway, which as you can see is pretty rough-hewn. My thanks go to KL Caley of New2Writing.com for continuing to keep us up to the mark with not only a
Man of the Woods sprang out at me as I saw the #writephoto prompt for this week. The picture of the Tree Man (below) is by fellow scribe Willowdot, and it’s wonderful! KL Caley runs the #writephoto from New2Writing.com, posting
Fisherman – a good prompt for #30DaysWild, too. I used to live by a river with loads of linked reservoirs around as part of the flood defences; it was a fisher’s paradise. Several of my friends fished, and my immediate
The Wave by Hokusai. An iconic piece of art that has been much used (and abused) over the years due to the ownership of the print blocks being in the publisher’s name, not the artist or his descendants. My art
Steps of Venice is my story today. I was thinking of maybe 200, maybe 500 words, but Venice took over and I’ve edited it down to just over 1000! And as you saw on Thursday, the photo from this week’s
Penny for your Thoughts: it came to mind because of this week’s #writephoto prompt – the Money Tree. If you’d like a regular flash fiction prompt, then consider popping over to KL Caley’s website New2Writing.com, and check out the Writephoto

Critters and Crises launches tomorrow. What? you ask. Well, more below. Today is the Insecure Writers Support Group monthly post. IWSG is a lovely group of people all posting monthly on the first Wednesday of the month, exploring all sorts
The Kiss, by Gustav Klimt, is one of my favourite paintings, and I had the pleasure of seeing it at the Belvedere in Vienna, many years ago now. It also introduced me to Egon Schiele, and Kokotchka: in one room
Appointed is today’s #writephoto prompt, courtesy of Sue Vincent. This crow sitting on top of a tree reminded me of something I wrote several years ago to the title Crow of Nine-World, but that is no longer on the blog,
Guarded is today’s #writephoto prompt, with the photo below, and I’m pleased to say it is a 2021 one! Sue Vincent is providing prompts as long as she can, so it has spurred me on through a little non-writing spell.
Entrance, a #writephoto prompt, succeeded the first one I did last year. Hopefully, I can fill in last year’s gaps with stories this year, until Sue Vincent returns to full strength. I write that in hope, but Sue’s post last
Grave mistake is today’s WEP prompt, but first… Haiku Ten years pass in flash— plus reviews, news and info… Jemima Pett blogs! Ten years of my drivel or wittering or, if you’re kind, stories The trouble with blog anniversaries is
Thursday #writephoto is the inspiration of Sue Vincent. Each week Sue posted a picture with a prompt and invited bloggers to make what they would of it – whether in poetry, prose or some other way. This is now on
A crescent moon provides the prompt for this week’s #writephoto offering. This is a rising moon in the photo below, although this week we have a setting crescent moon sinking below the shadow of the tree opposite my front window!
Long Shadow makes me think of a shadow I always used to imagine was going to look around the corner of the landing and look at me in my bed. But the picture isn’t right for a story about him…
Hello IWSG-ers. Welcome to August. I know, how did we get here so fast? This month’s IWSG newsletter poses a very long question. The end of it was: Have you ever written a piece that became a form, or even
Urban Nightmare. It wasn’t a prompt that inspired me, until I combined it with #30DaysWild! Thank you to the team at Write Edit Publish, for continuing to promote this bimonthly feast of flash fiction. You can see other offerings at
It Came from Nether Smocking – some Flashback fiction as I was delving into the past short stories on my blog, cataloguing them. This was no idle self-confidence boost. I plan to make a collection of them, for publication and
