Whenever there is any kind of argument in one of my classes, it’s solved with a game of ‘rock, paper, scissors’. Yet, however much the kids play it, I still can’t wrap my head around why any of it makes sense. Here’s what I reckon the objects think of it…
Hester started rising when she was 21-years-old.
At first, she wasn’t sure, she thought it was just clumsiness. She would try to slip her foot into her shoe and miss completely, skimming right over the top of it. She would try to kick things out of her path and miss, flying right above like she’d spontaneously grown. She would walk up stairs and somehow miss two steps completely. The last straw, though, was when she ran straight over a huge pothole, without missing a beat.
Here’s your weekly fix of teeny tiny stories for super busy bodies. This week, I’m powering on through my dialogue struggles and I’ve also challenged myself with an ickle bit of romance. (I’m fairly unromantic so it was difficult.) Enjoy!
Yesterday, I shared a children’s poem for Tuesday’s Tiny Tale, today I’m sharing a children’s story for Wednesday’s Weird Words. The more I write, the more I realise that all my fiction is a little odd, so soon the title is going to become obsolete. But, until then, enjoy the specialness of Wednesday!
I thought I’d mix things up a little bit for today’s tale. Firstly, my entry is in poem form – it’s been too long since I got out the ol’ rhyming skillz. Secondly, it’s for the kids! I’ve been writing children’s fiction for a while now and I’m finally sharing some of it. It’s a silly and gruesome in – enjoy!
Welcome to another week of fictional weirdness! If you want to catch up with the other Wednesday’s Weird Words, just click on the Stories tab. This challenge gives the chance to think outside of the box; write weirder, stranger, crazier stuff. Though sometimes, my interpretation of ‘weirdness’ seems to present itself as childish grossness. I must warn you, this is one of those times…
This week’s flash fiction is about teen angst. I don’t remember where I got the idea from (probably one of my own small, inward tantrums) but this is a very literal expression of it… Enjoy!
As you may have guessed by the title of this blog, I try to write something a little bit strange every Wednesday. I came up with this idea on my last trip to the doctors. Normally, I wouldn’t be feeling so inspired by a tube going in my ear, but something obviously clicked! I hope you enjoy my very literal check up.
It’s that time of week where I write something ridiculously short and call it a story. I must admit, I thought this would be a quick way to shoot out a blog once in a while, but it’s proved a little more challenging than I’d originally anticipated. But, here I go again, having a go! A tiny tale in ten sentences only, enjoy!
I must admit, I had absolutely no ideas for this week’s ‘weird words’. Normally, I’m overflowing with ridiculous ideas, so ridiculous that they really shouldn’t be written down at all, in fact. Then when I need them… POOF! They’re gone. Fortunately, this week I was inspired by a very rainy drive to work today and a writing competition by Margaret Atwood.
