The stories of my life on a little island in the middle of the Mediterranean sea ... and my occasional adventures beyond these shores.

A Paragraph and a Blog

As some of my older (and here I am not talking about age :)) followers may know, I occasionally send in paragraphs to Paragraph Planet. This is a website for writers where anyone can send in a paragraph. If it gets chosen, it will be featured as the paragraph of the day. All paragraphs have to be 75 words long, including the title. On July 31st I had a second paragraph featured on the website. For me it is a great way to keep writing at a period when I don't have much time. Summer seems to sap the energy from me and I get too fidgety to write coherently for long. A 75 word paragraph is just the thing. It gets my thoughts flowing and it only takes a few minutes. If any of you are interested, joining the site is easy and you can submit paragraphs immediately.

Having said all that, I am going to share my latest featured paragraph with you.

Apocalypse Now

Our horses are saddled. We wait only for the signal to be given. One after the other we will descend on Earth and wreak havoc on humankind. Pestilence, war, famine and death will follow in our terrible wake. Our horses are restless. The time is nigh. From the shadows into the light we will ride - harbingers of misery and despair. The first seal has been broken. It is time. The end is here.

Well, that's my version of future events. There was not much more I could say in just 75 words.

And now for a moment of self-promotion. I have started a new blog dedicated to Malta. It is a place where I can mingle writing with historical facts and photos without boring the socks off of everyone who reads this blog who is not into the history stuff. Called Snapshots of an Island, my aim is to focus on one thing/building/scene at a time and try and give a more in-depth understanding of what makes this little island tick. I am not asking any of you to follow this blog too. But if you want to pop by every now and then, or know of people who might be interested in reading about another country, please pass the word. I will be really grateful. Having said that, I think it is time for me to thank all my followers and all those people that take the time to leave their comments. It's one of the best things about blogging - connecting with people from all over the world. I am learning so much from each and every one of you and it really is a pleasure to visit with so many people every day without even having to leave my chair.
