Author’s Note: Fiction Fridays involve me taking a prompt and writing a short piece based on it in a (Fri)day.

R U OK?

The Monday evening news brought with it an incredible shock. An Australian Football legend had died in a single-car accident, after crashing into a tree, fifteen minutes from his childhood home.

The Reading

Author's Note: Fast Fridays involve me taking a prompt and writing a short piece based on it in a (Fri)day. Today's prompt came from an old Furious Fiction post: The last four words had to be: "the clock struck four." Don't know why my brain came up with this. But it did. Please do let...

The Story So Far

In 2016, I came across a writing prompt about a girl being locked up with someone who didn’t speak her language. And my story was born. I didn’t focus all my attention on it, as I’d only recently graduated with an early childhood education graduate diploma, and was working as a kindergarten teacher. But I’d... Continue Reading →
