Only 1,850 words – a fantasy story for a competition. I don’t suppose it’s any good. It’s not at all my usual thing – I have a horrid feeling it could be construed as magical-realism (yeah; shit! I know… O:) but hey ho; it was just an exercise really, to try and get me writing again and it seems to have done the trick. Which is good. It’s the first thing I’ve written in weeks.
