• Dr. Juniper
    “If it’s not too personal, can I ask if you ever told your parents of Caspian’s visit?” I inquired.

    “Not straight away,” he faltered. “I started seeing a psychologist, Dr. Juniper Simms. She helped me […]

    • Hi Jane, great integration of the prompt into your continuing story. Seems like Dr Simms was successful, since he is such a well-rounded gentleman now. But I wonder if we will hear more about her?

  • This is so cute Sharmayne:) I guess she has worn her parents down over time. As I would be thrilled to have a child who was so eager to learn and wanted to read everything:) I imagine the teachers would have loved her when she eventually started school. Well done.

  • Hi Chloe – I think this might be yesterday’s prompt of 120 words? It is on Day 21 for – Juniper – 50 words.
    I am guessing that she has been trapped in an abusive marriage for a long time. That she finally had enough and killed him. She might be on her way to the police station to give a statement. She has some kind of reason or excuse to tell…[Read more]

  • Hi Shelley, I always think to be truly seen is the greatest gift of all:) Thank you for your lovely comments.

  • Hi Shelley, this was super cute. It made me think that they were getting out after a lockdown. I also wondered if they might be named “Ready, Willing, and Able”, wouldn’t that be fun, LOL. Well done.

  • Hi CK, thank you so much, this is out of my normal writing genre, that is for sure:)

  • Hi Becky, I like to believe that ourdeparted loved ones can reach out to us. I have never witnessed it but it is a nice thought. Thank you for reading and your lovely feedback.

  • Hi Wesley, I appreciate your feedback as I never know where this story is going from one day to the next. Thank you.

  • Hi Wesley, no I guess that comment was a bit cryptic. Just means I would have fallen for him hook, line, and sinker if I had met someone like him all those years ago:) I am using experiences in life though to help a bit with the writing. A friend lost a son to suicide a couple of years ago and the comment she has said to us a lot is “you are…[Read more]

  • Hi Wesley, thank you so much for reading and your comments and support. This is a new type of story for me and not where I intended it to go at all.

  • Hi Becky, depression is such an awful disease. I hate to think how many are under its dark web at the moment. You have captured the MC’s mood really well. I do like the fact that she has enough self knowledge to know she will need prodding to get out of bed and moving. It is also nice she has a great friend to push her. Well done.

  • Hi Susanne, it does sound like Moon has a bit of a tormented soul. So brilliant and smart at an early age, but it seems it comes with its own drawbacks. She is quite endearing though with her emotional response to her readers:) Well done.

  • Hi Zannie, I love your title, the Gazelle Gene. I figure in the end that your MC is actually one up on that Gene with the flying talent:) So glad the MC has made it into the Institute and is not at the bottom of a tall building.

  • Hi Susanne, he certainly does, wish I had met him 20 odd years ago, LOL:)

  • Hi Alyssa, I enjoyed your descriptions and I loved the little blip at the end when the treasure is discovered. I wonder what kind of ship it was:) Well done.

  • Hi Sharmayne, Woops indeed. It seems that the relationship has definitely run its course. Shame she didn’t tell him before he bought the ring. I liked the little “Oh.” at the end. Well done.

  • Jane commented on the post, You Can Run! by Juanita 1 day ago

    Hi Juanita, I enjoyed this story, a fresh take on the prompt. Let’s hope that he manages to stay away from Doug and stay safe:)

  • Hi Wesley, That is so romantic. Loved it:) Lots of memories in this game, mine are mainly of fighting with my brother though:) Loved this take on the prompt. Well done.
    PS is this fiction or autobiography?

  • Jane commented on the post, Welcome 1 day ago

    Hi CK. This was very interesting, lots of detail an description packed into 250 words. I am I write in thinking that this is an alien ship that has landed on Earth? Well done.

  • Able to See a Future

    “Caspian told me he needed me to live for the both of us. To make a difference to all the people out there feeling lost, hurt and alone. He said he would always be with me, helping me to do t […]

    • Oh my, Jane, this Azlan is too good to be true….Wonderful. I think to be truly seen by someone is perhaps the greatest thing.

      • Hi Susanne, he certainly does, wish I had met him 20 odd years ago, LOL:)

        • Wait, is Azlan then based on a real person?

          • Hi Wesley, no I guess that comment was a bit cryptic. Just means I would have fallen for him hook, line, and sinker if I had met someone like him all those years ago:) I am using experiences in life though to help a bit with the writing. A friend lost a son to suicide a couple of years ago and the comment she has said to us a lot is “you are enough”. She said she wished she had told her son that more often. And told us to make sure our kids (adult kids now) know that they are enough. It sits in my mind all the time and I try to remember it with my 23-year-old son, who drives me bonkers:)

    • He’s lived through the despair his brother felt, but his brother saved him after he couldn’t save himself. This goes beyond anything that could’ve been found at her speed dating adventure! Great writing.

      • Hi Becky, I like to believe that ourdeparted loved ones can reach out to us. I have never witnessed it but it is a nice thought. Thank you for reading and your lovely feedback.

    • This just gets better and more interesting with each segment. The characters are developing nicely! 😀

    • That’s such a wonder gift – I see you. I love where you’ve gone with the story. It’s really got some depth. Well done.

      • Hi Shelley, I always think to be truly seen is the greatest gift of all:) Thank you for your lovely comments.

    • Hi Jane
      I am loving the twists and turns of this piece but more so the emotions these pieces evoke. You have developed a knack for these pieces and writing that flows so beautifully

      • Hi Wesley, I appreciate your feedback as I never know where this story is going from one day to the next. Thank you.
