He doesn’t look right

I can’t believe he just did that; stuffed a plastic bag into the hedge then go back… I thought to pull it out, but he pushed it in further, encouraged by his girlfriend.

Of course if I say something they might turn on me. I’m only little.


Always been little… of course I have. Was 4’7” at school, might be even shorter…

Do your parents litter the countryside too? Or is it just you?… or just her? I saw her talking to you when you did it. You don’t? Of course you do. She does too or she wouldn’t have encouraged you.

And you’ve parked on the grass, it just gets better. Bet you hog the middle lane on the motorway.

Road rage.

No Beryl. Don’t say anything… he doesn’t look right.

As I post an interview a day (amongst other things) I can’t unfortunately review books but I have a list of those who do, and a feature called ‘Short Story Saturdays’ where I review stories of up to 2,500 words. Alternatively if you have a short story or self-contained novel extract / short chapter (ideally up to 1000 words) that you’d like critiqued and don’t mind me posting it online in my new Red Pen Critique Sunday night posts, then do email me. I am now also looking for flash fiction (<1000 words) for Flash Fiction Fridays and poetry for Post-weekend Poetry.
