Do you Recall? – A recap of some of my posts.

Back in April, I did a recap post collecting some of my poems and short stories into one place. After all, it doesn’t do to hide your light under a bushel, so the saying goes, so as there has been quite a lot of movement in time, I thought I would share with you some of the posts I’ve written in the last couple of months.

Since the beginning of May, I have been working full time and tying myself in a knot trying to find enough time to continue my writing and blogging. I hope you have not noticed too much of a decline on my blog.

Haven’t I been busy? I think I’ve earned a vacation 😉

Were there any poems or short stories that you particularly liked? Let me know in the comments. 

I hope you have a lovely weekend.

Do you recall? – A recap of some of my recent posts.

 

Cheers

You may recall that about a month ago I wrote a recap post to give an overall picture of my short stories and poems.

Click on the link below to see this earlier post:

I didn’t want to do a similar post every week, because that would soon get monotonous, but I thought it was time to put together another recap post for some of my stories and poems that I’ve written in April.

I always considered myself to be more of a story writer, with Poetry just being an occasional aside. Seeing as how the number of poems I have recently in the last two weeks compared to the number of stories, I think I’ll have to modify my view slightly….

Enjoy your Sunday 🙂

Deja Vu – A recap of some of my recent posts.

I have to admit, my mind is totally empty of ideas. As Sunday is drawing to an end, now is the hour to relax, have a bath and prepare for the week ahead.

I thought I would put some links together of some recent posts that you may have missed. I did this a while back and it was a great success. There are many bloggers who are busy during the week and so try to catch up with the blogs over the weekend, and as such, you may have a missed a few of mine.

 

Here are some of the poems I wrote recently:

And here are a few of my short stories:

https://talesfromthemindofkristian.wordpress.com/2019/03/05/space-encounters-of-an-awkward-kind/

 

I also wrote a number of short stories that were part of the same collection, the adventures of a little boy named Jeremy. I thought I would put them all together, so here are the links:

What did I miss? – A recap.

I have seen other blogs do this and thought, what the hell, let’s have a go and see if it works out.

I don’t, however, commit to doing this every week, but if it’s useful, then I might.

Something that I hadn’t considered before is that looking back over what you’ve done over the past week can identify certain trends. For example, I seem to have written much more poetry this week than usual. I have always written more stories than poems in the past. Also, a lot of the poems are comedy ones, supposed to be funny. Of course, when you write comedy, you do so without any real knowledge if it is going to work. It isn’t funny until someone else laughs.

Also, being the week of Valentines, there are quite a few Valentines related poetry (but not of the soppy kind).

The Strange Inheritance – Story Recap

A while ago I started writing this horror story and I have to say, Horror is not a natural genre for me. I am very easily scared and I do not watch horror films or read horror books. As you can guess, writing this has been difficult, but it just seemed to want to be written, as if an unseen hand has been guiding me, forcing me on. There have been long pauses between instalments and I had to stop at one point because I kept having nightmares, full on waking up screaming, wicked nightmares! Later, I will post the final part of the story and then, I hope that whatever has been compelling me to write this story will let me rest and the weight of this burden will lift.

Firstly, if you would like to read the story from the beginning, I have posted the links below:
