I am an RGN and an aspiring writer. I have always wanted to write ever since I was about 7, for me it's what I was put on the Earth to do. Hopefully I will get published in some way, that is my goal, but as long as I'm writing that's all that matters.
I also do book reviews on my blog and always looking for new books and new ideas for my writing.
Hopefully 2012 will be the year that sees my writing take on a new life of its own.
I read all kinds of books but there's something about Sci-Fi, especially these little stories of space crafts drifting into some unknown place. This is a little story that kept my interest all the way and had me gasping for air towards the end like this poor traveller. Was he docking ? Was he hallucinating ? It doesn't matter.
I enjoyed, thanks. Must read more from Lane Diamond !
'I am a refugee in an attic. Milky light spills in through a small window. I squat beside it on a footstool, keeping watch on the street below. I spy on the soldiers in stiff green uniforms, wearing rifles like handbags.'
This is another e book that I came across on Smashwords.
It gives an insight into the life of a child in Poland in the eighties during a period of martial law. It is delicately and wonderfully told. Melanie Grabowski's writing is incredibly fresh and crisp. Words fail me as to how well written this short piece is.
