Superstitious Writing

2013-03-20 15.12.25This photograph is of my dearly departed cat, Flower. Poor Flower, I was thinking about her only yesterday, I can’t remember if it was four, or five years ago she left us. Black cats are considered unlucky for some, but good luck for others… now on the subject of luck and superstitions… I have been considering this recently. Since publishing my ‘Quirky Tales to Make Your Day’ collection, I have occasionally been asked ‘did that really happen?’ None of it ‘really happened’, I made it all up, but some of the stories were written in the first person… I really want to write a story about a (fictional) event in Manchester. Is this too much, dare I ask? What if I want to set a story at a funeral? Loads of examples of ill fate are popping into my head, but I hardly dare write them. Ah I’ll just have to tell myself that Stephen King was obviously not a teenage girl with special powers at a prom, and Charles Dickens was not an orphan who got taken in by a gang of pick-pockets, or was he? He didn’t really fall on ‘Hard Times’ … or did he? Can’t believe I’m scare to write, must be the heat.

Happy writing, Samantha

Welcome! Thanks for visiting my author blog. I write every day, I read every day, so we most likely have lots in common! I currently have seven books available on Amazon '1962', 'Piccalilly' 'Quirky Tales to Make Your Day' and the Curmudgeon Avenue series. I live near Manchester UK with my fabulous husband and wonderful, gorgeous grownup daughter, two cats and one dog. I write three types of blog; 1) Fiction written by myself and accompanied by one of my suitable photos or sketches. 2) Ramblings and amusing observations on life. I do not tend to write about anything serious (but admire those that do). 3) NEW! Book reviews. Although my priority is completing my next novel, if I like something I will share it. If I don't have anything nice to say, however, I won't say anything at all. Please see 'contacts' on menu. Sharing is caring, and so is reciprocation!
