The One That Got Away

Prompt: You bump into an ex-lover on Valentine’s Day—the one whom you often call “The One That Got Away.” What happens? —————————————– It’s a bad idea to go into a cake shop when you have curves like mine. It is suicide when you do so on Valentine’s day. Alone. Of all days I could crave…

#52 SHORTS CONTINUES…

I made me a wallpaper I stuck in my room to remind me every morning, my target for 2014. When I started this year, I called it my “creative writing” year when I was to produce 52 short stories if only to be disciplined and to prove that I could stick it out and write…

WHEN WRITING IS MORE THAN A HOBBY

Journal 3RD JUNE 2014 I have recently been on one of my writing lows. The kind I totally avoid writing and tell myself things like “writing is meant to be fun; if you don’t feel like doing it, just don’t!” That was until I recalled my plan at the beginning of this year- the whole…

BALANCING DEPRESSION AND THE PUSH TO WRITE

I can’t seem to write…much. I wanted to say “anything” but that would be unfair. I do write a little. Nowadays I find myself looking for the slightest reasons to not write. I could be from shooting a film or I could have had a tiresome day and do I really have to write 300…

FAMILY PORTRAIT

The dripping tap water feels good on my fingers. Beneath my palms are soapy cups I should rinse but the water lulls my thoughts. It’s quiet in the house- unnervingly quiet. So much so that my mind wanders. I stare outside the kitchen window directly in front of me and though people walk past the…

MY DEAR FORGOTTEN BLOG…

I have abandoned my blog for a long time. I know! The simple reason being- I just didn’t know what to post. I was busy working on another blog which is also a baby I love to bits (not a human baby- You know how I feel about those:-D) I have also been really caught…

CINDERELLA THE BITCH

Let no one tell you any different ; Cinderella was a lying scheming bitch! It pisses me that no one cares what “happily ever after” means or  who the hell lived happily ever after! So many people think she was the goody-two-shoes in all this yet they never cared to find out what happened after…

PLAYING JUDAS

She knew this might happen someday but she had never planned out her reaction or anything. However, when Sara displayed her left hand with a new huge diamond stone on her ring finger, Triza knew exactly how she felt about it. “He proposed!” Sara squealed much to the delight of the three other girlfriends who…

52 SHORTS- Keeping Up

Hey guys, I’d like to say “So what?!” but I painfully notice I have skipped two Saturdays without posting a story for my project 52 shorts. And I do have good reasons for not posting; ranging from the laptop crashing to no internet access, but I hate making excuses so I will try to recover…

THE JOURNEY #3- Left Behind

NOTE: In case you missed the first and second stories : The Journey #1 The Journey #2 *************************************************************************************************** It’s been getting hotter and hotter and that’s how I know we are only a few minutes away from Mtito Andei. I had to take off my jumper a while back and along with it, the hood…
