ON WRITING

“It’s very easy to quit during the first ten years of writing. Nobody cares whether you write or not, and it’s very hard to write when nobody cares one way or the other. You can’t get fired if you don’t write, and most of the time you don’t get rewarded if you do. But don’t quit.” Andre Dubus

Twisted Christmas Fairy Tale Blogfest! Dec 18

I want to thank Francine at Romancing the Blog for hosting the Twisted Christmas Fairy Tale Blogfest! This was a real challenge and I've learned a lot about fairy tales whilst researching this story!


I have posted my story on my Flashquake blog as it's paying double service as my #fridayflash fiction story for the week. The opening:

     ‘Cindy, please don’t go,’ the step-sisters begged.
      ‘I’m 18 years old! I’ll do what I want!’ Cindy snarled.


To read the rest of the story, go here



Oh! Just a moment! Before you go I'd like to wish you the happiest Christmas ever, lovely blogger buddies.



Now I hope you'll pop over to Flashquake to read my story and comment and maybe even follow me there if you like to read short fiction. I publish most Fridays.

Then click on Francine's link to read more twisted fairy tales...

Thanks
