In addition to the regular challenges I submit pieces to, I also want to have my own writing worlds. These will be places I can revisit and add more stories, layers, characters and intrigue as the weeks, months and years go by. In time one of these worlds may spawn a monster; maybe they won’t. However, I hope what they will provide me with is plenty of scope for writing practice, and for my blog followers something enjoyable to read.
Stories about a drifter called Hairy Bob, and his faithful Labrador companion, Mugwump. Their adventures are based in a North American setting. Nothing too controversial: just some feel good stories, with the occasional surprise thrown in.
