  1. #2 Out of New York

    She stretched her fingers slowly. Flashes of pain crept up her arms after being tied for what seemed a long time. Darkness brought vivid memories of her stay in New York, the car she stole and how she savagely fought her way into the ship. Going back to prison was definitely not in her plans.


    Skyscrapers, wolves, trees, cruise ships, whales and sharks swirled inside her mind.
    Old untold stories cried loudly, asking for attention.
    Thousands of words crashed her brain with the violence of rogue waves.
    Breathing was getting harder and harder.
    Thinking was becoming impossible.
    “Welcome to National Novel Writing Month”, she heard someone say to her.

  3. Sandy

    Never name your child Sandy with a “Y” said her Ma.
    She wrecked havoc beyond repair, taking not just a bite out of the big apple, but took the apple and smashed it against the wall. All that is left in her path is damp destruction that will turn millions of possessions into malignant mould.

  4. Author

    She was a writer. Her mind burned of stories!
    When first she griped the pen and sat at her desk to write,
    the ink poured portraits in impressionistic views across the pages.
    She wrote with a wildness of a voracious predator as each blank area was filled with her
    unquenchable desire to get it out!
