A story a day, for thirty days


I had trouble with this second story.  It was  a tale that required a lot of sensitivity that, at the start of the week and weary from work, sickness and moving home, I was concerned I might not have.

I didn’t know how to start the story.  I hadn’t written a word until lunchtime.  Then I found a way to introduce the characters, the setting, and the peculiar situation that brings them all together.

Having not intended to write a commentary for any of these thirty stories until the end of the project, I won’t put anything more here and just post the .pdf to view, or download to your PC or e-book reader (you’ll need Adobe Acrobat Reader).

[Edit:  Sorry, you are too late to read this story.  Some stories may be retained on the website.  Some e-mail requests for copies of the stories are being granted (]

I’ll update the website proper with the story from today and yesterday shortly, for those who want to read on screen or bookmark the story for later.

The stories will remain available for a minimum of 30 days but no later than 30th December 2010.  I would love to hear your thoughts on any of the stories either on this blog, or via the website’s forum.

Enjoy, and thanks for reading,



Edit: I’ve corrected a few typoes
