Neutral Tones

Do you prefer neutral tones or colours?

I recently counted fourteen cars parked in a row in our main street all in shades of silver or grey. And busy supermarket or shopping centre car parks look a lot like Fifty Shades of Grey!

I love my Yellow car and it’s so easy to find in the car park 🙂

Colourful stories

Today’s prompt . . .

Everything in the washing machine was turned bright pink.

I’m sure most of us have done this 😦

I hope the prompt inspires a fun story or poem 🙂

Team Colours


I’ve put out a call for submissions of poetry, short stories and articles with a COLOUR theme.

Fact or fiction, dramatic or tongue-in-cheek, just include lots of colour to brighten our cold winter in the southern states of Australia 🙂

Submissions need to be in hard copy. Post to PO Box 798, Heathcote, Victoria, 3523, Australia. And see  ‘information’ at the top of this post for further details. Thanks 🙂

Colour my World

That’s today’s prompt . . . Colour my World.

To brighten our Australian winter months, I want to include as many colourful stories and poems as I can in upcoming issues.

Submission details for Australian contributors can be found here : Submissions & Subscriptions for Positive Words

And, for overseas contributors : International submissions and subscriptions

Any questions . . . email me –  🙂


Today’s prompt –

Showing true colours . . .

Sounds enigmatic, indicative of a-lot-more-to-the-story and I’m sure we’ve all been in situations where those around us have shown another side to their character.

And . . . it’s those things we draw on when we develop plots for our stories. Several readers have confided that certain people have ended up in later stories, disguised and probably known only known to the author. A little silent revenge that harms no one 🙂

And . . . there’s more 🙂

One contributor recently sent me a poem relating to Colour, and I decided it would be nice to fill the July issue (and possibly the other winter issues) with colour to brighten our days. If you have a ‘colour’ story or poem, send it in 🙂 Hard copy please – PO Box 798, Heathcote 3523, Victoria, Australia.

I look forward to a full mailbox 🙂
