December 2014 Mini-competition results

Finally catching up on my backlog of correspondence, submissions and mini-competitions.

Please find the results for the December competition here: Positive Words DECEMBER 2014 Mini

Congratulations to the winners and sincere thanks to all who entered and help to keep the magazine alive :)


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 :)


Today’s writing prompt:

Which road?

Sometimes there is no right or wrong! But the decisions can be agonizing :(

Hope the prompt inspires a great story or poem.


Windy Weather

A writing prompt for today:

It’s an ill wind . . .

Yes, it’s windy here and has been for several days :(

I can hear it now whistling around the corner of the house.

Writing prompts


My apologies for the lack of writing prompts over the past weeks…I’ve had a break and will now endeavour to provide them at regular intervals again :)

Prompt for today:

I think I’m beginning to understand.

I hope it inspires some great poems and stories :)
