A Stirring Tale by BryanW Word Count: 743

For the 486 Challenge. Sorry about the beached whale simile. I couldn't think of another at the time but I sense there should be a metaphor or simile there! Feel free to replace it with a better one of your own.

An American Dream - The Legacy by BryanW Word Count: 999

This story is based on Elvis's American Trilogy - a medley of 'My heart belongs to Dixie', the lullaby 'Hush Little Baby Don't You Cry' and 'The Battle Hymn of the Republic'- you know, that one that goes "Glory, Glory Hallelujah. Sing or hum these while you read an, you never know, you might even manage to improve the quality of the writing.

Beware Greeks Bearing Gifts by BryanW Word Count: 791

For Week 485 Challenge. I was very taken with the myth of the Trojan War as a youngster. I suppose it is one of my thoughts about honour in war that pops up in my story here.  
28 Nov 2013

Bridge Over Troubled Waters by BryanW Word Count: 996

Children of a Future Age by BryanW Word Count: 2011

A first upload in this group for me. I'd appreciate any comments. Oh - one thing - should a chunk of the Keats poem referred to be presented earlier or even at the start to help the reader?

It`s Like Déjà Vu All Over Again by BryanW Word Count: 1000

A recent report suggested that if the meteor that wiped out the dinosaurs had hit the Earth a few seconds later it would have splashed in the ocean fairly harmlessly and history, or rather, pre-history would have been completely different. Man's rather limited 200,000 years time on earth would probably not have happened.

Oh, would you be an an angel ... by BryanW Word Count: 1000

Dear reader, the dialogue in this historical account, at least until the final scene which took place in the Protestant Cemetery in Rome in 1888, when the famous memorial to William Wetmore Storey and his wife was first unveiled, has been translated from the Italian - rather badly, I’m afraid, by your humble and linguistically challenged narrator.  
28 Jan 2017

Olga from the Volga by BryanW Word Count: 999

For Oonah's Paper Doll Challenge 641. 
10 May 2017

Entry for Tassie Devil's 516 Neighbours Challenge 
11 Jul 2014

Some Mother`s Son by BryanW Word Count: 787

I was told, or I read, that by far the most common final word from soldiers dying in WW1 was "Mother." This is a true story, fictionalised. One of the names has been changed. 
21 Nov 2013

The End of the Road by BryanW Word Count: 823

For Week 524 Challenge. I suppose it might help if you know Gene Pitney's '24 Hours to Tulsa' - but then agai, it might not.  
13 Sep 2014

The History Trip - a tale with a moral by BryanW Word Count: 950

I discovered these couple of pages, hidden, I guess, behind a loose stone in the wall of the Old Jail House in the village of Stretton, a coaching stop in Rutland, on the old Great North Road from London, through York to Edinburgh.

The Wife`s Story by BryanW Word Count: 739

Intended as a cautionary tale for us all. It's a rushed job. And I can tell you one thing I'm not addicted to - and that's Christmas shopping! 
21 Dec 2013

They`re All Talking About Jim by BryanW Word Count: 500

NOT for entry in the competition - obviously - I'm judging this week's. But I thought I'd have a go at writing something anyway. 
15 Nov 2013

For Loopili's Week 517 Challenge 
19 Jul 2014

What a Strange Power there is in Clothing by BryanW Word Count: 800

For the Deadly Sin Challenge. Starts with some vanity - but I suppose that's not deadly? I think there's a touch of envy, just a hint of two types of lust, and some wrath involved - but our mc's problem is mainly pride. 
26 Mar 2015

Yo Ho Ho by BryanW Word Count: 500

For Cliff Hanger's Challenge 624. The Christmas card in question had a bunch of Santa's elves on it and I was a bit worried about their working conditions ... And so who says I can't do political satire now, eh?
