November 2nd

Who turned the lights out? November has crept in and enveloped us in misty gloom just as the last of the Halloween pumpkin was chucked into the compost.

Never mind, an excellent way of cheering ourselves up presents itself. Why not relax and peruse the latest edition of the new wide-screen Winamop which has been packed full of life affirming goodness by our dedicated band of writers?

Seem like a good idea? Let's go..

We begin with another splendid story from Donal Mahoney. Down at the old guys poker game all talk is of absent member "Cussin' Paul" who has started going to church.. Why? Find out in Cussin' Paul Gets Religion.

Not a bad edition is it? And I already have some good stuff in the hamper for the bumper December edition. Of course I can always do with more, especially fiction, so If you feel the muse at your shoulder, get writing and e-mail the result to me using the button at the bottom of the page.

See you soon.

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!
