Worth It?

A punch from her was similar to getting kicked in the head by a wild horse; but that comparison was made later, after the whining noise in my ears had ceased and the world didn’t lurch quite so sickeningly whenever I swallowed.

Afterwards I spoke to the guy still trying to plug the nosebleed she’d caused with one crack from her forehead. At five foot three she had to stand on her toes to reach, but the bouncer had gone down like a tonne of bricks.

“This happen before?” he asked watching them handcuff her wrists.

I nodded.

“Blimey.” he whistled. “Can’t be worth it.”

“It is.” I said. “It bloody well is!”

Carol Forrester is a twenty-four year old writer trying to be a better one. Don’t ask her what her hobbies are because the list doesn’t get much beyond, reading, writing and talking about the same. She has a 2:1 BA degree in history from Bath Spa University and various poems and stories scattered across the net. Her flash fiction story ‘Glorious Silence’ was named as River Ram Press’ short story of the month for August 2014 and her short story ‘A Visit From The Fortune Teller’ has been showcased on the literary site Ink Pantry’s. Most recently, her poem ‘Sunsets’ was featured on Eyes Plus Words, and her personal blog Writing and Works hosts a mass of writing from across the last five years. She has been lucky enough to write guest posts for sites such as Inky Tavern and Song of The Forlorn and is always open to writing more and hosting guest bloggers here on Writing and Works. With hopes of publishing a novel in the next five years and perhaps a collection or two of smaller works, Carol Forrester is nothing if not ambitious. Her writing tries to cover every theme in human life and a lot of her work pulls inspiration from her own eccentric family in the rural wonders of Shropshire life.


  1. Nice one Carol. Your work is very readable which is good after a long day and you read something that just flows off the page. Well done.

    • Thank you, it is lovely to hear that people are enjoying my work and its fantastic to see someone reading more than just the one piece.

Please take the time to tell me what you think, I love receiving feedback. :)
