It’s back to my Monday posting that I decided upon last year. Thank you to every person who visited my blog last week on IWSG day! I’ve never had so many visitors at once… there was a total of 84 comments. I appreciate every single visitor/commenter!
It’s time for WHACKY WORDS! The first for the new year. Remember, this is supposed to be FUN!
Today’s word is
Lalo left, step to the left, lalo right, step to the right, two steps forward and two steps back, two hops forward and two hops back, turn around and touch the ground; click your fingers and face your partner, right leg forward and che-zi-a, left leg forward and che-zi-a…. don’t you recognise it? It’s the new line dance that is taking the world by storm!
That’s my definition. (The word does have a meaning, but you are invited to play along by providing your own original meaning. No cheating and looking up the word. I’ll post the meaning next week). So do you wanna play along? Leave your definition in the comment section below.

I’ve decided that the best way to get back into writing regular flash fiction, is to post my five sentence fiction as I did before.
What it’s all about: Five Sentence Fiction is about packing a powerful punch in a tiny fist. Each week the hostess will post a one word inspiration, then anyone wishing to participate will write a five sentence story based on the prompt word. The word does not have to appear in your five sentences, just use it for direction.
The memo promises an out-of-the-box investigation.
A cold case from the archives hoping to revive more than just a flagging career.
Recently appointed, the strictly business and no-nonsense ‘new broom’ tactics of the pasty-skinned department head, accompanied by erratic pacing and obsessive popping of antacids, adds an extra layer to the whispered comments ‘on a sweeping mission’ which plagues the corridors.
Forensic reports reveal new evidence destined to intensify the investigation.
Many employees are embroiled in the controversy but a finger points to the pinnacle of the food chain…

My urban fantasy story will be included in the upcoming collaboration Of Mist And Magic. The anthology should be released within the next two weeks. Here’s a peek at the cover!
Isn’t it gorgeous?!
So what have you been busy with? Have you ever tried writing flash fiction?
I’ve been struggling to get back into the swing of things. Besides the new year, it’s also because we’re moving towards mid-summer… the weather has been unbearably hot and humid… leaves one feeling drained… listless… can you believe that on Christmas day the temperature soared to 42 degrees C, which is about 107.6 degrees F? Or thereabouts? Anyway, it may take me some time to get around to visiting blogs… I’ll try my best…
