On a previous blog, I used to do something called a BLT. Not a Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato sandwich, but a Blog Leap Tour. It was inspired by the Kevin Bacon (hence incredibly clever BLT double meaning) and 'Six Degrees of Separation' trope. This is as close to a BLT as you can find on … Continue reading bryntin on tour; you may also like…
I was doing a light diy task yesterday, installing a picture hook onto a wall. Do you like the use of the long word 'installing'? It makes the task seem somehow more interesting and complicated than it was. Anyway, at one stage of proceedings, I found I had accidentally composed a 575 verse.

By that I mean for a … Continue reading edgeways: diet

Welcome to the first October 2021 edition of the skipped gear IQ, a feature where I have imagined a question to ask myself as a lazy excuse for a post, and as an entertaining alternative to just knocking off a quick 575 haiku-type verse
Once again, I come to you via the pixels on your screen that are a contrasting colour from the other surrounding pixels on your screen, forming into the contiguous shapes you know as letters, in groups approximating words that are mainly real and easily understandable, and linked together in some form of chain that may … Continue reading edgeways: welcome
I have unearthed a few files from ye olden days and have been looking through them to see if I had accidentally written anything good. While you are waiting for me to come up with anything from that search, here's a flash fiction I did in 2019 in response to a single prompt word on … Continue reading flash fiction: marigold
