Ice pool
As you already know I love strange and unusual photos and I will often carry a camera or my phone to capture something that intrigues me. Ice is one element that always has the power to surprise me as this little pool shows which had formed in a puddle on my favourite dog walk. What does the picture invoke in you? How might you craft a story or a poem that uses this as your muse? Write quickly and without self-editing as you go along, see just how far you can get without stopping to think over what you’ve written. You can see my effort here: It looks like a portal to another world. Layers built on layers with a dark ...

Life and death on the social web
Benjamin Franklin certainly made a point when he said “‘In this world, nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” With the help of a good accountant, tax can certainly be mitigated. But death, now that’s a different matter altogether. The reason I got to thinking such gloomy thoughts was an article I was writing about LinkedIn which referenced the number of UK professionals who had an account on the network. Did you know there are over 15 million of us, that’s a quarter of the entire population of the whole country. I realised as I was writing that it’s certainly within ...

5 things to think about when submitting to a writing competition
Warm greetings to you from the slightly chilly dressing table I write at in our flat. Not quite a room of one’s own, but it does the trick. If you saw the interview Linda did with me a month or so ago you’ll know who I am. If not, I’m El Rhodes, I’m an archaeologist and writer of both long and short prose and occasional bits of poetry.   Over the last two years, my work has been published in a lot of journals and anthologies and I’ve now placed in seventy competitions (fiction, nonfiction, poetry, micro, flash, short story, full-length manuscripts) and won twelve.   This year I’m teaching nature writing and ...

Fooling with fools
It’s All Fool’s Day which is traditionally marked by the custom of playing jokes (usually on friends and colleagues) and engaging in frivolous activities. So it seems only right that today’s writing prompt reflects such hilarity and it seems fitting to try out a sentence or two of nonsense verse. By the way, I am not a poet, would never claim to have such skill, but this was fun to do as it just let me work with what came into my head without editing! Fool’s a fool in Anyone’s eyes and Anyone could spot Fool quite clearly. And nonsense withstanding, the aim of Fool or Anyone is to make other f...
