Doppel Day Dolly

The time had come for me to wear something new for my dreamboat, so he gave me a card that makes numbers and told me to go into town. He called me useless and stupid, but I did find my way to the fashion store. I got there all on my own.

The only trouble was, I was already in the fashion store, and I watched myself liking the very same dresses that I liked. I didn't know what to do. The other me saw me and waved. I still didn't know what to do, and then…

Demon Wings

England is full of demons, or so the papers keep saying. The government always deny it, they say demons don't exist, they're just a media invention to unsettle the masses. I didn't know what to think at first, I'd never seen a demon and neither had anyone else I know.

My husband told me not to worry about demons, even though some…

Dave World

The Rock Bar, what a dive, peeling paint on the door and Fat Dave still hasn't fixed that smashed window. The place is dark and seedy but I love it, it's where I first met the missus, God bless her.

Nothing much ever changes in The Rock Bar, same crappy fittings, same beer, same music. Although one thing is new, a Dave Grohl poster is up on the wall, alongside the Floyd's Dave Gilmour. Quite an honor for the American upstart, if only he knew he'd finally made…

Splish, splash, splish, splash.

Paint is splashing everywhere, a galaxy of dots surrounds our huge canvas and my face just got splattered with shades of pink and baby blue. All three of us will end up covered in emulsion, but who cares? This watery stuff is harmless and easily washed off.

Splish, splash. "What fun," says beauty personified.

Too right it's fun, you vision of loveliness. Our fresh take on art is seriously cool and…

Bedtime 2

Bedtime 2  

I'm sure the twins I childmind must be psychic. I know they're very close, but it does freak me out when Florence finishes what Elizabeth starts saying. I've a little test in mind for them; I hope they'll play along because there's not much else to do in their dark old house. There's no TV for entertainment, the twins play with their china dolls, Gertrude and Ethel, while I do my homework. It gets boring and…

I'm still working at the story-a-week thing, and keeping up with it so far. One thing I'm wondering is who I should show them to to get feedback. Some of these I want to put in the novel/collection…Continue

A Formatting Question-- How would you...?

Title Advice?

Posted by Daniel Hale on December 14, 2015 at 18:29 0 Comments

I just completed, as near as I can tell, my first book: a collection stories disguised as a novel. I do currently have a working title that I was initially happy with, BUT it may now be too obscure or inapplicable.

The title as it is now is "The Psalterdemalion." This is a combination of two of my favorite words: Psalter, which is a small book of psalms, and Tatterdemalion, which is a man dressed in multicolored rags and tatters. My thinking was that the man character, a story thief,…

On the 1st August 2015 a special night had arrived for seventy-five year old Robert Harris and his seventy-two year old wife Barbara.  Robert was nattily dressed in a blue suit and Barbara looked elegant in a long flowing red and black flowery dress. They were in the heart of the…


Final Stretch for my First Project

Posted by Daniel Hale on November 16, 2015 at 2:41 0 Comments

So I've got my stories together for my first collection, and am currently working on the connecting narrative. I haven't even thought yet how I'm gonna get this published. Gotta start thinking what I need to do.

Mark stood on a sea cliff top. A wave below roared in and sprayed out a ferocious impact. Its retreat left a glistening carpet of foamy shale. To his left, a slender figured girl appeared, dressed only in a skimpy black nightie. Her blonde hair fell over her face. Scarlet lips whispered to him,…
