Having only just discovered the re-blog – here’s another one of my stories that was published about a month ago I forgot to mention! oops… enjoy!
We weren’t supposed to end up in the bath. It was one of those intense blue afternoons where it’s almost too hot in the sunshine but disconcertingly dark and shivery when you step indoors. The kind of afternoon you get in Melbourne in early spring. But this was Sydney, autumn. I was sitting out on my balcony, eyes closed as I soaked up the brightness when he stopped by. I had other things to do. But he was far more appealing.
Joel was a taxi driver so I always half-expected him to visit anyway. He’d knock on my door to use the toilet when he was passing by and had a spare fifteen minutes. Toilet breaks are the bane of a taxi driver’s existence. I’d learnt to listen out for the engine’s wide hum as he pulled the cab onto the concrete slab in front of my block of flats.

Thankyou! Oddly, I feel more confident about my other two more dark-fantasy-style stories. But this is actually closer to what I want to write. I guess that’s not so strange…
Take them as they come. love them all like children. Then, write better ones. Bravo to you.
Wise advice 🙂
Loved this. Vivid, clear, sparse writing that really captures a place, feeling and moment.
thank-you. that is pretty much exactly what I hope to achieve! x
