Story

Another windy day on the porch. Just thankful the storm has past because last night we experienced high winds, thunder and lightning. But today the sun is poking his head out once in a while. What rain falls is being blown over very quickly. As I watch the water streaming down the road I remember a story. Below is my recollection please enjoy… ‘The Ferret’

For attention: Head of Animal Police,

The other day, two days previous to this letter, I came upon a situation I think you should be made aware of.

Down by the stream I was witness to a ferret a rabbit and an otter, all three sitting on the river bank, what looked at first as if they were sunbathing, enjoy and relaxing in the sun. I would go as far as to say they were even talking to…

Think before you???????? [poem]

Sitting on the Porch 2

Friday 15th January 2016.

Poem

Think Before You Leap.

I sometimes wonder by returning home,

Is it the right thing to do.

Yes I do still call it home

It is not the same which is quite true.

 0000000000000000

The village life is still within

But the people are no longer, gone.

Gone maybe, closely related more akin,

We are still singing the same ole’ song.

 0000000000000000

Thinking of now, living the moment,

Today not tomorrow or yesterday.

Everything one does is heaven sent.

Slogging through life, no way!

 00000000000000000

Ambling through the water-splash,

Strolling over the rickety old bridge.

Walking the grassy country footpath

Standing, staring out from the rivers edge.

 000000000000000000

The sun shines brightly on my apple tree,

The fruit is young with colourful blossom.

This tree was the place I wanted to be,

My tree was never far from my home.

 0000000000000000000

No longer there, finally lived…

New Batteries, Lights Bright. Brief Message

Sitting on the Porch 2

Friday 8th January 2016

SITTING on the PORCH 2

stories are here again.

I have been away for a long time but now I have new batteries and my lights are bright. There will be poetry mixed with short and long stories that are brewing nicely in my head, eagerly awaiting to be read by you.  Some good and some, at the moment not so good. Also some are already written, maybe in need of a little editing. Some you may have read before, if so please be patient and enjoy again. 

I haven’t posted on this site for a long time, some may not have missed it, some may have, but for me it has been pure laziness. I have not posted regularly on Restawyle either and as for this site and my music site ‘Brocks Music Shed’ well I ashamed to say they have been ignored. I especially…

2015 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 3,500 times in 2015. If it were a cable car, it would take about 58 trips to carry that many people.

Xmas 2015

Sunday 20th December 2015.

Here we are once again, another year passed and lots of stories to tell. There are probably many things we are grateful for, some of you have written about them. But mostly these thoughts, outer or inner are very important to each of us. I am grateful for may things, being alive is just one very important thing.

I am very disappointed this year because I am unable to do my Xmas series, different topics each year, three years or is it four, but not this year due to committments and not having the time. I find these past posts helped me feel the Xmas feeling more and passing it on to you. Anyway peoples here is my little thought for all of you.

Xmas 2015

xxxIt is xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxmas time again

Crime Story and Possible Cover [ideas]

November 30th Monday.

Scribbler

It is the end of November, the end of Nanowrimo and the end of my rather poor attempt. This year I had fully intended to participate and for the first few weeks everything was fine. But I got involved in another project which will last until just before Xmas and because of this it put an end to quality time and I was therefore unable to commit to writing which has resulted in not completing the task. I am disappointed in not being able to commit fully and finish but I had to put priorities first, timing was not good. I did reach just over 25000 words.

It has not been a complete loss, my story, a modern-day crime/adventure story has started to evolve from a short story which I have published here.  Some great characters have started to develop, the story line which started from the short story has now matured into a tight fast-moving, twisting and intertwining lines, with lots of surprises. Lots of dead bodies and blood, not too descriptive, with plots yet to be unraveled. Because of my Crime Fiction course I have moved into an unknown world and with my current attempt I will continue to write and hopefully finish this story. Even I am intrigued has to how it will end.

Wizard Prince Cover

King and Queen of the ‘Kingdom of Whitemoor’ live in a small castle with their five sons and one daughter. Their internal fighting and battle for supremacy, and next in line. The story covers the adventures of all of them. All heading in different directions, all with their personal conflicts eventually come together to ward off evil and save their kingdom. Out of all these battles one son, the quiet travelling minstrel, emerges as the powerful wizard and saviour to the kingdom.

19102014 111

A guitar player is drawn into a parallel world. He picks up a parchment dropped by an elderly couple.  While he attempts to return it he discovers it is magic. The verse written on it guides him to his first mission and it changes as each task is completed. He meets and becomes friends with creatures of this world who aid him. They encounter many problems and he discovers that he has to return lost souls of the old generation of the land. The people were once the guardians of the land. He discovers his music has magical abilities which also help him and his group.

cover for Nooks

This particular cover was originally designed for my novel ‘Birth of the Wizard Prince’ but I decided to use it as a cover for short stories. I even changed the title as you will have noticed. This story originated from a short story of the same name.
