It's a C..... didn't make it...

The flash fiction I have been waiting to be marked has finally come in as a C.... didn't make it... The Gift of Wisdom has now been sent off to another competition and The Nurse which was longlisted has also gone to another competition. I have now decided to be patient and just wait for e-mails arriving telling me they have been successful. Ever the optimist haha.

Today my 75 words It happened in the early hours was chosen to appear on paragraphplanet http://t.co/xOcwzIkq . Each day a different 75 words appears and then goes into the month's archives. If you have time its a great quick read each day.
Here are my 75 words

It happened in the early hours of Sunday morning. Felt like a hundred hands were turning forward. I fell into a void, taken hostage. It was dark, silent and eerie. I knew what was happening but ever year I was powerless to stop it. Like six months later when suddenly I would be released ready for winter. I missed the light, the sunshine, the summer. There’s a rhyme about my predicament Spring forward, fall back. 


  1. Is that what they mean by 'purple prose'?

  2. A generally pejorative term for writing or speech that is characterized by ornate, flowery, or hyperbolic language. Contrast with plain style..... haha thats purple prose... this blog is so educational....

    1. Obviously wasn't saying that about your writing ... just that it was purple!

      Floweryness, purple and hyperbole can work ... used sparingly!
