Book Description:

This collection comprises five volumes of fifty stories written from a variety of prompts and published on Morgen’s blog: http://www.morgenbailey.wordpress.com, where
you can still read the list of prompts – a story a day for nearly a year.
In this book there are stories of revenge, luck and misfortune, sharp edges, sticky red hands, no faded circle of skin, family heirlooms, Chelsea buns, and alien hums.
We meet a generous aunt, men in uniform, a fan of Hawaiian shirts, untidy teenagers, characters looking to improve themselves, a young girl with wings, a modern-day Cleopatra, and a curious fortune teller.
These stories all go to show what can be done with a prompt, a few hours, and a colourful imagination.

My thoughts

Definitely a very different perspective to writing and definitely one that keep you guessing.

Morgen is one of those authors that draws you in with her words and then characters that of course as well.

He collections aren’t near as easy to read as the full stories because there isn’t near as much to get a good bite of to show you what they are about.

In this it was a wonderful book and really enjoyed the writing style.
