For Creative Writers Everywhere…

Do you have a story or poem about a mother? Biological mothers, adoptive mothers, step-mothers, mothers-in-law, grandmothers, some who has been like-a-mother etc…

In the May issue I will be featuring MOTHERS and submissions sent as soon as possible will be most appreciated.

Work from Mothers or about Mothers. Fact or fiction, tributes or comedy . . .

Stories should be up to 1000 words and poems up to one page and sent in hard copy to Positive Words magazine, PO Box 798, Heathcote 3523, Victoria, Australia.

Thanks 🙂




A writing prompt for today…


Where would we be without them? In the last couple of weeks I’ve observed three generations of situations where true friends have supported others in need . . . I’m sure there must be a story in that 🙂

As the year draws to a close…

I hope the blog title makes for an inspiring prompt 🙂

The end of my 2014 has slipped in a couple more hiccups . . . this year is determined to go out with a loud crash and bang!

Thank you to everyone for all the kind messages and emails. They help . . . they really do! And my thoughts are with all who are also experiencing tough times.

As my years draw to a close I have been catching up with submissions and correspondence and will be posting more competition results in a few days.

And I have also written a couple of stories, something I haven’t done for quite a while. You can read them on the ABC Open project:




Today’s writing prompt:

What to buy for . . .

Have you finished your Christmas shopping yet?


It’s that time of the year

Today’s writing prompt:

It’s beginning to look a lot like . . .

When I was very young, I thought everyone’s Christmas must have been celebrated in the same way!

Now, I know differently, of course, but also my Christmases have changed a lot over the years.

What does Christmas look like to you?


Role Reversal

Today’s writing prompt:

Role reversal.

Apologies for the lack of prompts over the past week . . . I’ve been caught up with some of life’s ups and downs!




Today’s writing prompt:

No fixed abode.
