Rudyard Kipling And My Son

I don’t often reblog posts but I love these lines of Kipling’s.

Simple Pleasures

My Son

“If you can fill the unforgiving minute / With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run, / Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it, / And – which is more – you’ll be a Man, my son!”

Rudyard Kipling

Dragonfly – Friday Fictioneers

Photo Prompt  Erin Leary

Photo Prompt

Listen my son. Can you hear them? Can you see them?

Lurking. Waiting.

What’s that you say? There’s nothing there. Oh but there is. Little creatures, call them fairies if you wish. See how they swoop above the water, dash between the plants.

One of them is your mother. They took her to be their queen.

Which one do you think? The one with the purple wings. Yes you’re right. She is the most beautiful.

Wave your arms my love. Wave your arms for your little boy.

I am happy to return to weaving stories in one of my favourite forms – short fiction- and am grateful that rochellewisofffields.wordpress.com continues to run the successful Friday Fictioneers. I have been absent for some time, busy with the publication of my novel Silencio and writing my second full length work.

Silencio at the Printers

The editing is now complete and Silencio is at the printers. When I have the book in my hand, I will list it on GoodReads and I hope to persuade my readers to give me some reviews.
Now I can concentrate on my next novel, currently titled Life on the Line. I am using Scrivener to write and plan this novel and hope this will simplify some of the complications and consistency.
My goal is to complete the draft by the end of August and that an editing course I have booked on for that period will be timely and useful.

Going into Publication

Exciting times ahead. Silencio, my first novel is in the throes of publication preparation and should hit the retailers’ shelves in the new year.

In addition, my second novel is nearing completion of the first draft and I am working like mad to have it finished and polished so that I can follow up my first published novel with a close second.

With all of this going on, I have little time to write short stories however I do hope to fit in the odd one now and then.

A new website is under development and I will post the link to that soon.
