Mary’s story

Under Charli Mills’ careful guidance I have been following a series of prompts. This has led me to a continuing story line which one or two have asked about so, since it’s pretty easy to do, I’ve brought the sections together in one place (under the ‘My Work’ tab on the bar at the top of this blog – here’s a link if you want to see the lot). I will, I hope be able to develop this as the challenges continue. Where the story goes is as much in Charli’s hands as mine (and, of course the characters).

About TanGental

My name is Geoff Le Pard. Once I was a lawyer; now I am a writer. I've published four books - Dead Flies and Sherry Trifle, My Father and Other Liars, Salisbury Square and Buster & Moo. In addition I have published three anthologies of short stories and a memoir of my mother. More will appear soon. I will try and continue to blog regularly at about whatever takes my fancy. I hope it does yours too. These are my thoughts and no one else is to blame. If you want to nab anything I post, please acknowledge where it came from.

    Woohoo! This is awesome! Mary, born of a prompt from the land of unicorns spearing salmon to the reality of a father’s dirty little affair and its aftermath.

      It was a slightly surreal sensation reading them all as a piece and seeing the development. Now you have a major challenge which is to stretch me to areas I’m not expecting to reach. Oh, what’s that? Write about a character’s motivation? Thanks Charli. I wasn’t expecting you to take me there!
