This week I’ve made a free 1500 word short story available on my website. It’s a prize-winning story that I wrote in 2002. The story was later published in a local short-story magazine which, sadly, is no longer available.
The inspiration came from an exercise on a creative writing workshop. Participants were given two fictitious lists of contents for a briefcase and a handbag and had to choose one of them and paint a pen-picture of whoever they imagined might be the owner. I chose the handbag and when I returned home this story just developed. If you can spare the time please download and read Snatch and Grab and I sincerely hope you enjoy it.
