Dear Ba




After I posted my entry for Five Sentence Fiction I remember a story my mother had told me about my Great Gran and how went she went ice skating she took a dinning chair with her so she could keep her balance. It struck me that for the prompt ‘frozen’ this would have been the perfect response. So it looks like this week I’m doing two responses and I hope you enjoy this anecdote as much as I did when it was told to me.


Dear Ba,

When you were young the village pond would freeze and people went skating.

You never struck me as a timid person.

Sharp as thumbtacks, formidable wit.

Yet I’m told the ice scared you, or at least falling did.

So you went skating with the dining chair in front, just in case you slipped.

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.


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