A new month and a new story? Well, sort of …
I’m so pleased to be adding this month’s story to alisonearlsALOUD – having had the honour of being shortlisted in the Lightship Flash Fiction Competition 2012 and then included in the anthology, ‘Lightship Anthology 2’, I can now publish ‘Wild Life‘ on this site! (As copyright reverts to the author after a year, I’m finally able to share this ‘short story‘ with those that haven’t read it in via its initial publication.)
‘Wild Life‘ – the thoughts of a young man alongside his ailing grandfather – lends itself well to the audio format so I hope you’ll take the opportunity to listen to this ‘flash fiction’ piece. (It’s one I’m actually quite proud of … AND it’s a concise one that shouldn’t take up too much of your time.)
With this website being a constant source of motivation, it’s also a challenge to hold back some of the writing that might have a chance of publication elsewhere. So to be able to add a story that has already proven itself is very satisfying.
I do hope you enjoy listening to/reading ‘Wild Life‘.
