Short Stories & Flash Fiction
Comments 9


We streamed through summer until the crunch and shift of crumbling leaves took us tumbling though rainstorms of answers that maybe, we were not yet ready to give. On days when you were there, we steered clear of marshy ground where mist became fog and I could doubt that the foot at the end of my leg was really there at all.

Days when you are here we reinforce the bridges not yet crossed to make sure that when they must, they will bear our weight. For this I trust in your faith.

Carol J Forrester is a writer trying to be a better one. She’s currently working on her first novel ‘Darkened Daughter’ and attempting to put together a collection of poetry in the hopes of submitting to publication in 2020. She has a 2:1 BA degree in history from Bath Spa University, enjoys judo at least twice a week, and tries to attend poetry events around the Midlands. 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. Her poem ‘Sunsets’ was featured on Eyes Plus Words, and two of her poems were included in the DVerse Poets Pub Publication ‘Chiaroscuro’ which is available for purchase on amazon. More recently her poem ‘Until The Light Gets In‘ was accepted and published at The Drabble and her poem ‘Newborn’ was published by Ink Sweat & Tears. She has been lucky enough to write guest posts for sites such as Inky Tavern and Song of The Forlorn and has hosted a number of guest bloggers here on Writing and Works.


    • Thank you. I had to think about the prompt for this one since I didn’t want to write something too obvious about Autumn/fall, so I decided to write about what Autumn 2013 means for me.
      I’m hoping to start working some of the history from my modules at uni this year into my writing; aonce the lectures really get going.

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