I’ve been busy with work, family and a few other writing projects over the last few months but after reading a recent brave and honest post from Dawn at Tales From The Motherland, I realised how much I missed the interaction of the blog. On one hand, I like the solitude of writing but it can be quite isolating too, so its great to have a forum that helps us to stay connected.
So where better start back than in my favourite blog group – Friday Fictioneers.
The aim as always is to write a 100w story based on the weekly photo prompt. Details of how to get involved can be found at host Rochelle Wisoff-Field’s blog
This week’s photo comes courtesy of ©Sarah Potter and has the potential for some great stories which I look forward to reading.

With retirement approaching, DI Duncan Morris re-opened his only unsolved case.
In 1988, researchers discovered that a painting bequeathed to the local church years earlier was worth millions.
It was subsequently stolen.
Duncan had followed footprints through the forest till they stopped dead at a pair of well-worn, men’s black shoes in a small clearing where trees were sparse. Nothing more was ever found.
Duncan sighed. Greeting a female officer, he noted how similar male and female uniforms had become. Even the boots …
Damn! They’d always assumed their thief was male. But weren’t there scandalous rumours about Fr Davies and a former Olympic gymnast?
