The Blurb –
This collection was written from a variety of prompts supplied by storyaday.org and originally published on Morgen’s blog (morgenbailey.wordpress.com – where you can still read the list of prompts), during May 2011, 2012, and 2013.
In this book there are stories of revenge, overcoming obstacles, newfound and lost love, shopping, chocolate, legends of history, and the occasional alien or two.
We have crimes afoot, writer’s block, characters with and without friends, homages, humans and non-humans, scratches, squeaks and barks.
From Chelsea buns to casseroles, we share the highs and lows, but the stories all go to show what can be done with a prompt, a few hours, and a colourful imagination.
My thoughts – This is a great collection of short stories and flash fiction. Prompts are a great way to get the creative juices flowing. The use of prompts to collate this book is good as you get such a wide range of subjects.
All the stories are unique and showcase the writer’s talent, as she tackles a varying array of topics.
