WIP: Raw

This is a story self started, 2014, in the Tyrone Guthrie Centre in Annaghmakerrig. Kept it going when she moved from Annaghmakerrig to Inchicore. Father H still alive then.

Varnish and varnish. I’ll say this for K: she is tenacious. Especially about her delusions.

“Me mum’s a thick,” she said once. “A focking thick.”

“Hmmm,” I said.

“She a root rotter,” K said.

The “I” is a man, but everyone who’s read the story automatically thinks it’s a woman because they know self wrote it and she’s, umm, a woman?


Stay tuned.

WIP: Thinking of Expanding This

The last she remembered was the brick coming down on her husband’s head, and she screaming, to no one, or everyone, “Fly!” When she awoke, her head hurt horribly. There was an iron-bound door directly in front of her cot. Faint light showed through a small, half-moon shaped window cut near the top. There was no sign of Justin. She forced herself to get up and go to the door. She leaned against it, standing on tiptoes in an effort to see outside, but her eyes couldn’t reach the window and she was too weak to jump. She crawled back.

Curves in Ireland

For this week’s challenge, get inspired by the curves around you. From curves in architecture to bends in nature to man-made undulations, you have lots to work with!
