First Lady of the Keys

0B414BC7-8EA2-4C90-B7F1-4AB68453A165

As one of the most ancient and esteemed establishments of the academic elite, Old College is in for something of a shock when it appoints its very first female Deputy Head Porter. As she struggles to get to grips with this eccentric world – not to mention the polite and discrete appearance of some dead bodies – she begins to wonder just quite what she is doing here.PorterGirl – First Lady of the Keys is a quirky and, at times, laugh-out-loud funny glimpse into a world usually reserved for the upper echelons of society.Whether she is chasing after naked students, drinking copious amounts of tea or getting embroiled in nefarious deeds, Deputy Head Porter is never far from…

Throwback Friday – ‘Greenland’ – Eric (EDC Writing)

‘Sam & Erin’s Story’ has been on hold a while as I completed ‘Shorts – a take on poetry’ – their story first saw the light of day as a mix of narrative scenes and messages – then became all messages – on re-reading I think I might change my mind again and add narrative text like this back in – your thoughts as ever welcome please…

Go Dog Go Café

This post a lengthy piece of narrative text written as part of ‘Sam & Erin’s Story’ back in September 2017 – this its first exposure at the Go Dog Go Cafe…

As wheels touch the ground and spent air is released through every orifice he strains to hear her breathless whisper. “Sorry, Sam, your fingers are bleeding.”

Sam grins as he looks at his deeply scarred hand. “When I said get a grip I didn’t mean quite so literally! At least this one is already ugly.” Amy gives his hand a kiss; a trace of Sam’s blood merges with her lipstick.

Online links – Short Prose – Gabriela M

Today sees the publication of ‘Passions: Love Poems and Other Writings’ by Gabriela Marie Milton – known too many of us online as Gabriela M at Short Prose – a writer, a poet and a good friend.

I got to know Gabriela, as so many of us do, through the exchange of comments on our posts of poetry and prose – our first exchanges the Spring of 2018, I recall, each finding our online way – a like, a word of encouragement, a follow – Gabriela does this for so many, and two years on, her posts liked and commented on by us in our hundreds  – a poet we love to read, a woman we love to interact with – the charm, the talent of Gabriela so evident to all.

And for those who may not have read her, may not yet know what lies within her ‘Passions’ – here are links to two ‘love poems’ – no more from me – Gabriela says it all:

‘The miracle of you’ linked here – and ‘I am the one’ here.
