I’m a teeny-tiny bit late with my Literary Lion piece again but because this week has seen the start of NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), you can forgive me right?
Aw thanks – you guys are amazing!
I hope you will also extend that forgiving generosity when you see how short my piece is – but the reason for that is not due to lack of time…
Lately I have been really inspired to write microfiction – an even shorter style of writing flash fiction. Want to find out more? Well I would strongly suggest you take a look at what the team at Yeah Write are up to. It’s a great resource for writers and worth checking out.
Anyway, back to Literary Lion.
Just a reminder about what it is: The challenge, as always, is to tell a prompt-inspired tale in 400 words or less, in fourteen days. You can find out more about it here.
I hope you enjoy the photo which goes with this round’s piece. It is my very own literary lion, given to me by my dad when I was teeny-tiny myself.
Any feedback is always welcomed.

I’m standing on the edge of something big, only you don’t want to acknowledge that.
I have my wings tucked away safety in my backpack and I’m ready to go.
I want you to come and join me but I’m scared if we jump together that only one of us will fly.
