Bio:
There seems to be only a limited amount of my drabbles showing, so best way to browse them is to look via the Series option below. That also groups the drabbles together better so if you like one of a type you can read others. There are some rather daft (and often painfully "Just getting into writing and bad at editing") drabbles from a few years ago that are quite different to my current writing, so apologies for those in advance - I do know they are bad but there's too many to go back and sort them all !

I like reviewing and I like reading reviews, or getting messages if you prefer that method. The fun bit about drabbling for me is the social contact and hearing what people liked / wibbled about / felt was realistic / unrealistic.

A good year for the roses by crm Rated: General starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 8]
Summary:

"The other side of the bed was empty.
Con pushed back the duvet and got up. Through the window she could see Nell in the garden, continuing her battle with nearly a year's worth of weeds. Con did not need to see her face to know she was not happy. Her head was bent down, further and more solidly than strictly necessary for her task, and her movements were rapid without being especially efficient."

A little Fulpmes love story by crm Rated: General starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 28]
Summary:

"I sneaked a glance at her as we passed under the pine trees. It was not yet properly dusk above us, and even down here it was still light enough that the girls walking ahead needed little more than a cursory eye kept on them; nonetheless, night came earlier in the valley and the trees blocked out a large portion of the natural light that did remain, and I was glad of the lanterns we carried. Nell's chestnut hair shone in their light, and her eyes, too, sparkled."
