Inferno – Esthers Monday Motivations 

This week Esther set her Monday Motivations challenge around the words Glasses, Blaze and Madness. This is quite a tricky one to combine but I’ve had a go anyway:


Beep, beep,beep the alarm sounded so distant in Sam’s sleep. Not sure if it was a dream he thought the claxons would stop. 

They didn’t stop, slowly he awoke from his deep sleep, the room dark, the beep, beep of a fire alarm ringing in his ears. His head banging from the heavy drinking session only a few hours before. 

Gathering his senses Sam put on his glasses but still could see anything apart from a faint glow from the door. Hurriedly he pulled on his trousers, falling flat to the floor with a bump as he lost his balance, knocking his already hurting head.

“I don’t need this!” He mumbled as he lay there panting. He pulled his trousers on awkwardly then stood up and made his way to the door. Turning the latch he opened the door and was met with a wall of fire. The blaze roared only feet away from him, but Sam felt no heat.

In a moment of what seemed like madness he stepped into the fire and walked towards the direction of the stairwell. His vision a blur of flickering yellow and orange he took one step at a time until he cleared the inferno. Descending the stairwell he realised he was now naked, his clothed burned off of him. At that instant a black cloth landed next to him.

“Put that on will you?”a soft female voice purred “Your modesty need protecting and I saw enough of that earlier!”

Sam spun round “what? You? Laura?”

“Laura isn’t my name, call me shadow”

Sam pulled on the cloak “what happened?” He asked from under the long black cloak.

“I told you, you have a special ability!”

“I thought you meant…”

“No, not like that, but I have to admit it was pretty good!” Shadow exclaimed “You are an immortal entity and your abilities are only just becoming apparent. The master knows about you and wants to meet you. Will you come?”

Shadow held her and out looking deep into Sam’s eyes, he took his glasses off, black and cracked he threw them down. He looked straight at Shadow and took her hand.




Yesterday I reached an amazing milestone – 1000 followers!!!!!

Al though this was sent to me, it’s you guys out there that have given me this. 1000 of you have hit that button to follow me, some of you I know really well and many more of you I don’t. But this doesn’t matter, you’re all my followers and you have all helped me to get this so thank you very much!

I know i’m not about much at the moment, but hopefully I will be about more soon.

The blogger who hit that button is janyceresh I haven’t had much of a chance to see her blog yet, but it has cats and I’m going to find out more!

Take care guys – see you soon if spared!


Where am i? 

This is a little update message to all of my dear bloggies some of which I know have missed me. I don’t know maybe some of you haven’t lol. But it’s been about five weeks into the new job now and I’ve been as busy as hell and trying put put on any posts has been challenging. Especially as I don’t get much time in my evenings for much.

Starting at the beginning I’ve started working for a company that’s creating waves in the field of medical robotics. I’m designing circuits for them and hopefully were going to be doing great things for people who need surgery. I really can’t tell y much more than that because it’s all pretty hush hush and commercially sensitive information that my new bosses dont want put out there. But as soon as anything becomes public I will be sure to be putting up something about it as it really is something interesting and I hope I can look back and say I had a small part in that in years to come.

Writing wise – don’t ask. Really not much has been going on. A few days ago I managed to get the Circuit Mechanix published about a month too late because time has been so tight. I have projects I’ve been working on that in reality haven’t moved in the last six weeks and I really need to visit them soon and find a way to keep them moving. My Titan story still needs finishing off and is in reality in the final two parts. I’m hoping to finish them as soon as I can so that’s done and I can concentrate on the larger projects that I need to complete or at least keep moving. 

Life goes on as always with its ups and downs and I’m still about, I’ll try and keep up with you all a bit as you keep posting your wonderful work here. The community that is found in WordPress is quite amazing and it’s the part I miss most. But I have great ambitions for what. Want to do going forward, so watch this space….or this planet. It’s not stopped spinning yet, in fact it has a long way to go yet!

Stay safe all of you and stay well, keep on prodding me if you so wish I will appreciate it. With the clocks going back fast approaching I’m looking forward with a little dread as i think I suffer a little with SAD and have done unknowingly for many years. Maybe I’ll shake it off this year and the business will be a blessing in that sense. 

Take care amazing bloggies!
