Mind Short Story Touching

Heart Full Of Coal

I’ve already posted an initial version of this piece, this is a revised and slightly longer version. It’s a short and simple mystery story but the mystery is not of the usual kind. That’s all I can say. I’m not normally one for writing romance but this is bitter-sweet. I hope you don’t find too cheesy/corny, if you do let me know!

Flash Fiction Mind Surreal

Bertha, are you in control of your inner pig dog?

A really short quiz format story inspired by the German term “Innerer Schweinehund” which translates to Inner Pig Dog. I think it’ll become clearer reading the piece what this means but I would say something like your inner demon. The part of you that is self-indulgent and lacking self-control. It’s certainly a big part of […]

Flash Fiction Songwriting Touching

Lives in A Dream

An imagined continuation (with illustrations!) of the Beatles song ‘Eleanor Rigby.’ I’ve continued the profoundly sad song, which centres on old-age loneliness, by focusing on Eleanor’s experience beyond the grave as she reflects on her own dreams and those of others.

Climate Flash Fiction Short Story

Frogs in Hot Water

A very short flash-fiction inspired by climate change. It’s probably somewhere in-between a flash-fiction and a poem. It’s probably a little abrasive in parts but don’t worry I’m screaming at myself just as much as others. I hope it makes you think about what actions we could take now. Let me know what you think.

Allegory Fantasy Short Story

The Wooden Palace

This short story is set on another world but is inspired by a particular era in our history. I won’t ruin it by telling you! I hope you work out the allegory by the end and leave the story feeling empowered.

Dark Mind Short Story Surreal

Bungalow Palace

The first (longer-length) short story I ever completed. It starts as a dark and slightly whimsical fairy-tale but turns into a dark psychological tale with an intended underlying message. It will disturb you in its latter highly surreal sections. I would love to know what you think about the epilogue and whether you think I should keep it as I’m unsure. Thanks for reading.
