 Fiction: Blood Ties - by Mezzanotte (1068 words) - Date online (22-12-2008)
Just Plain Daft.

This story was inspired by a film I saw maybe twenty years ago. There is a particular scene in this film which has always stayed with me, and this story is my own 'take' based loosely on events that may have followed on from that scene. I really hope that the ending is a surprise, and would appreciate any feedback on whether it worked or not. Thanks Jackie

The world is disjointed for me at the moment. There are snatches of parts of images that stick to me like unoticed ejections of snot. This 'poem' that I have left, quite obviously in the flash fiction section, is all about these things.

Novel Excerpts

A couple of years ago, I started writing a novel featuring many characters and viewpoints. The characters all lived in one area, but were unknown to one another. Their lives overlap on a particular day, though, in ways that bring significant changes to all of them. Unfortunately, it didn't get far... though it's still on the back burner. This is one of the early chapters.

Just Plain Daft.

If you're thinking of selling your soul to the Devil then it's only natural that you'd want a preview of your future home- a property viewing of hell... This is a follow up to the tomfoolery that was 'The Council of Women' but the idea came about following another one of those wide-ranging 2 a.m night shift conversations. (Edited 25.11.08 and now written in the first person...)
