DebE —  February 11, 2012 — 2 Comments

792 word Short Story written. (Limit was 869 – random, I know). Yay. I completed something.

Time to return to adjusting my WIP before the boy wakes for the afternoon.


(I’m not sure if I’ll put my short up here. It was written for a competition called “The Weekly Quickie”. Most entries are highly sexual, of course, but they don’t have to be. They just have to stir feelings in the judges. I’ll see how it rates, and then I’ll consider whether to post it under my “Other works”.)




Deb E was born in New Zealand’s North Island, but her parents corrected that within months, moving south to Dunedin and staying there. Childhood nights were spent falling asleep to cover versions of Cliff Richard and the Shadows and other Rock ’n Roll classics played by her father’s band, and days were spent dancing to 45 LPs. Many of her first writing experiences were copying down song lyrics. She graduated to scientific reports when she studied a nematophagus fungus in the Zoology department of the University of Otago, trading all traces of popularity for usefulness… then traded both for fiction. Mum of one human & four fur-babies.

      Thanks (o:
      It’s all too easy to get into that rut of never finishing anything. I think it is worthwhile doing very short stories with a deadline. Just to give you that sense of achievement once in a while.

Wanna talk about it?
