It is that time of the week. Thoughts, ideas and questions are exchanged from blogger to author; writer to reader. A weekend of consistent editing and late night reading sparked a topic that is heavily debatable in the literary world – prologues.
This will be the third week of this weekly ritual. I hope some people are starting to enjoy the process as much as I am. However, I would like more engagement by other bloggers/ authors or writers. My answer to this is time-frames and deadlines. For those who sign-up to my email listing below, I will send the reminders.
I want to get people involved, if we can get enough traffic, hopefully some cash prizes can be organised – to make it more interesting.
In the meantime, I will continually post the rules and my stories each week.
Sunday Short Story – a short story on Sundays. In the form of poetry or a short story with a fully developed theme. You can: choose to join and share yours; or read mine – either way you’ll be participating in the weekly event.
Word Limit: up to 500 words/ 5 stanzas
Genre: Author’s choice (including poetry)
The idea behind it is to think outside your major project or genre. Being completely absorbed by the one project/ theme seems daunting and frustrating. I feel it could be like music; you can love classical but listen to a bit of rock to make you appreciate the finer melodies.
Here is a poem from a bus-stop bench’s perspective I wrote today.

I regret to inform you, the readers, I could not post the IV installment to Burimen Brothers.
In town this week is the IronMan Triathlon and my workplace is one of the major sponsors. I worked 12hr shift today and it was a feat to summon enough creativity strength after an exhausting day. I will DEFINITELY have it posted by Sunday afternoon. Please be patient with me, and please do not un follow me.
In the meantime, I have a short story about memory called, ‘Trust or Not To Trust’. I wrote last year, in the second P.O.V for a competition. I made it to the semi-final with it.
