I love the idea of generating writing ideas from a set of pre-prepared words. In this one, simply choose one word from each column and create an introductory sentence for a short story, flash fiction or a novel using each of the words. My effort is below. “I watched the painter as she worked the rain-soaked canvas, yellow running into red into green using her finger as yardstick measuring the proportions of our local station.” Now your turn. Why not use the comment area below to share your thoughts.   The post Painter and canvas appeared first on Linda Parkinson-Hardman.

Wherever Fido went my little sister went too. Faithfully holding on as he bumped and rolled his way around the garden, the house, the pavement. Not once did he look back to check she was ok. And she never questioned his direction, simply following along like a puppy on a lead. The day she followed him off the pavement and onto the road was the day my mother decided Fido had to go. Year’s later here he is, forlornly sitting in the junk shop window waiting for his playmate to come back and rescue him. I walk in, pick him up and take him home to my child who follows his bumpy, rolling trek around a new territory called ...

Jenny Rossiter first joined me on this blog back in 2012 with her book The Masks that Men Wear. Since then much has changed in her life and business. In her latest book, a memoir called The Freedom Bus from adoptee to true self Jenny combines her heart-warming story with her professional expertise, calling on her experience as a psychiatric nurse and lessons from corporate life, while drawing parallels as a single mother and successful business owner. As an adoptee, she unveils her story from rejection to acceptance and how her midlife questioning empowered her to be her true self and how she found a version of herself sh...

Susan was reflective cutting the perfect snowflake biscuits. Sometimes all it took was a sprinkle of magic and sugar dusting to wash away the cares of the day. Slotting the trays into the oven she leaned back against the marble coffee in hand, watching as they turned from cream to golden. She wondered how Paul would react when she told him. Hopefully, hearing the news over a plate of his favourite biscuits would make it easier. The timer pinged, ten minutes and all done! Her inner creative sprang into action. Mixing icing sugar and colours in glorious, Christmassy shades reflecting the snow outside. The doorbell rang, Paul...

If you search ‘digital intelligence’ in a search engine you will find that, broadly, it is either a “new type of intelligence that combines knowledge, ways of knowing, and the ability to interact effectively in a cultural or community setting” 1 or something to do with big data, marketing, and strategy. These definitions ignore our essential humanity moving the playground of our digital lives firmly into the school room of skills, abilities, and knowledge. They also assume something fundamental has changed about the human experience when really nothing has changed, we are simply looking at our world...

Let’s be honest, when we talk about saving the planet we don’t really mean the planet. After all the planet will look after itself, it has for the billions of years it’s already been around. We don’t even really mean how to save the amazing, glorious, generous ecosystem that is nature. What we really mean is how do we save ourselves! Somehow we’ve divorced ourselves from both the planet and nature. It’s as if we see our planet as a pyramid with us at the top, lording it over everything else below us as if we aren’t part of nature at all, seeing ourselves as separate. What we seem t...

‘Dermot, Dermot’. I tug at his shirt urgently, trying to get his attention. ‘Yes?’ He glances at me and smiles. ‘Dermot, what if I told you all this,’ I wave my arms around expansively to indicate the enormity of what I’m about to say, ‘is not real, that it’s all just a dream.’ I finish breathless and cock my head on one side waiting for his astonished reaction. ‘Piffle’, he says, and I realise he’s referring to the book he was reading. A beat later he looks up and smiles. ‘Go on then spud, tell me what you mean?’. He says it kindly a...

Well, what an evening. It was the first time I’ve ever held a launch event for a book, let alone an anthology for the Hysteria Writing Competition. And it was the most fun. With my special guests and friends helping out, together with a few technical (no make that human glitches) we got through it and the feedback from attendees was that they enjoyed it too. The point of the launch was to announce all the winners of the categories and the Guess the Cover competition. And the winners also had their entries read by my good friends and Distinguished Toastmasters (check them out on LinkedIn and you’ll see they all ...

7 pm on 2nd December 2021 saw a bigger group than I’d imagined coming together on Teams to celebrate the launch of the Hysteria 8 anthology containing all 30 long-listed entries over three categories in the Hysteria Writing Competition 2021. I and the audience were joined online by a cast of almost thousands, well seven anyway; three of my closest friends (including my husband) who are all Distinguished Toastmasters, and three of the amazing reading team who read and judged all the entries. Each of the overall categories winners entries was read aloud, and the readers and I had a good natter about what it takes to wi...
