Very Short Mondays: The Day The Newspaper Rang

The train carriage was busy.  Not full - all of the seats were taken, but only two or three people were standing.

No one was surprised when the ringing started.  A couple of people checked their phones to see if it was them.  But it wasn't, of course.

There was one man, looking awkward in a suit and a hat, and reading a newspaper.  He knew the ringing was his.  Cautiously, he held the newspaper to his ear.

"Please listen carefully to the recorded message.  You are next.  You are next."

New Greetings Card: Birthday Nuts


This was my birthday card to my Mum earlier this week.  She got the original pen drawing, and now I've coloured it in on Photoshop for sale in my Redbubble shop.  Quite pleased with how it turned out.

Very Short Mondays: Big Head

I started writing this about a month ago.  There was going to be more of it but I can't for the life of me remember what was going to happen.  But it kind of leaves some nice question marks as it is.

Big Head

Nicholas went out for a walk.

He hadn't been out for a walk in three months.  Hadn't been out at all, in fact.  Nor had many other people.

Big Head hadn't been seen in two days.  The sky was empty, so Nicholas thought he'd risk it.

It wasn't to last.  Of course.  Just because It hadn't been seen didn't mean It wasn't there.

It was there alright, looking down on us all.  Looking and waiting for a fresh energy source.

Video Blog Thursday: The Girl Who Collected Goats

Hello!

Not done one of these in ages, and I still haven't been back on a regular schedule on here, not least because I'm in a play at the moment.

But here we go.  I wrote this poem on the way to a spoken word gig at The Goat Inn in St Albans.  I'm not sure if it might have been subconscious, but it was totally unintentional that I wrote a poem about goats on the way to a pub called The Goat.  As much as I'd like to take credit for that.

As usual, it's very silly...
