Dying for the Record

A.J. Ponder No poem this week, instead I'm directing everybody over to my story "Dying for the Record," published as a PDF on "The Tomorrow Project" and a runner up for the Arc 1.1 competition "The Future Always Wins." For those who are unaware ARC is a fiction spin off of the New Scientist, and the competition was run in conjunction with "The Tomorrow Project" which has been set up "to explore our possible futures through fact-based, science-based fiction and video conversations with scientists and science fiction authors, legends and world renowned experts..."

Read the story click here.

To find out about to how to enter Arc1.2 go here 

I'd love for people to drop by and comment - but if you do - I'd advise you not to read the blurb because it hints at the ending - and not in a good way. 

So yeah, sue me for being lazy, I've completely failed to manage to post a poem, but in my defence the week's been chock full of writing.  Wizard's Guide to Wellington is coming along, there's an exhibition to organise for Rona Gallery, teaching to do, a family to organise and so much more!

For your poetry fix why not drop by the Tuesday Poem Hub, I'm always pleasantly surprised by the sheer diversity and talent lurking in the sidebar.

    1. Thanks Janis - means a lot to have people drop by and read my work even when it's not poetry :)

  2. Well done. I have to read it again but in the daytime!:-)

  3. Helen, thanks so much for reading - I hope you weren't too disturbed - I remember my writer's group was also rather stunned by the tone and themes, but I thought it was in contrast to my rather light-hearted children's stories.
