I’ve just realised that it is exactly one year since I created this blog, Autumn Leaves!
Thank you to everybody who has read it, commented on posts, and followed me. I’d particularly like to thank Rochelle, Joshua and Karen for providing prompts for the flash fiction challenges ‘Friday Fictioneers’ and ‘What Pegman Saw’.
During the last twelve months, I have blogged 166 posts, which have received over 6,500 views, with 173 people following the blog. It’s been read by people from 63 different countries, something I find almost unbelievable!
To celebrate, here are links to three of my favourite posts
‘Me’ time, a 100 word piece of flash fiction with a twist that surprised everybody. https://pennygadd51.wordpress.com/2017/09/06/friday-fictioneers-me-time/
Persistence of Vision, a poem celebrating my wife after 42 years of happy marriage.
A heavy bag, which is an allegory in the form of a short story
So, what shall I do in the next twelve months?
I plan to spend three hours every day working on my novel.
I intend to take a creative writing course.
I shall continue to participate in at least one flash fiction challenge – they’ve been very helpful for improving my writing skills.
Thank you all so very much for supporting my efforts to become a better writer; and thank you for the friendship that has been shared so freely!
