November 11th

Here comes the November edition of Winamop, right on time (well, only slightly delayed) and packed with good stuff.

Next time it'll be the Christmas edition and I'd like to make that a bumper one, so let's have your high sugar high fat contributions, (or organic high fibre if you prefer). I'll drink to that!

Maybe it's a little early to start drinking yet?

Oh well, back to work, and here we go with the November's fare. It's certainly going to be hard to beat.

Martin Friel has been busy writing another chapter of his story When The Traffic Lights Stopped. We've now reached Chapter 8 in which we meet Seth. We'll get to know Seth quite well I'm sure...

We haven't heard from Martin Green for a few months but he's back now, rejuvinated, and has penned a piece about one of those "friends" you collect without really trying. It's called Buddy.

Now to Donal Mahoney. Donal always writes an enjoyable tale and this one concerns an old millionaire who gets a visit from a young female reporter. Some Day Soon is the title.

I'm very pleased to welcome Martin David Edwards to Winamop. Martin is a London based writer and digital artist [BIO] and this story - C is for Cromer - features a man working his way through the alphabet in search of something.

J D DeHart has four more poems for us this time and, as usual, the standard is high. Here we have Wannabes, Vice Versa, Seasons and Birthing: little windows into disparate lives.

KJ Hannah Greenberg has some poetry for us. The first is a somewhat worrying bedtime story and the second is on emotional suicide. But don't worry, we always learn a new word from Channie and this time it's "Levigate" which means "to reduce something to a fine powder or smooth paste" (I'm not counting Yerk and Zonk).

That's all for now, but there's no time to dilly-dally, we need contributions for the Christmas edition! The e-mail button is at the bottom of the page.

Until then I wish you all you wish yourselves, and if you're thinking of buying me socks for Christmas I take UK size 8.




Something you missed? Catch up on previous editions by clicking this word. They are all there, right back to 2003.




Winamop was conceived on a whim, is run on a shoestring, ignored by the many, loved by the few and has continued unabashed since 2003.

All human life is here, experienced people, skilled writers and rank amateurs, sometimes they hit the mark, sometimes they belly-flop (sometimes they mix their metaphors). You pick up the pieces and make of them what you will. Find out about us here and about the site here.The contributor's guidelines are here and the e-mail button is below.

We hope to continue to maintain a showcase for new writing which will grow as you, dear readers, augment the efforts of the in-house team. We have over 400 unique pages so far but, quite frankly, we need more...

Have a good look around and if you feel that you'd like to contribute in any genre, then don't be shy, send it in! The copyright remains yours, and you could win a mop (unlikely, as I've run out).

Jump straight to a category using the buttons at the top of the page, they work from any page. Remember, it's all free and is made from 100% natural ingredients!

By the way, we use a cookie to record your page ratings, if you don't rate a page you won't get one!
