Geometry and The September Project

For September I set myself a writing project, whereby every day I would find a photo and then write a few sentences inspired by it. The idea was to stop myself before I ran away with one idea over another. Hopefully, I'll be able to go back to each piece and pick up where I left off. I know there are a few that have the beginnings of longer stories. I've still to read over them all to see if there's a pattern. I'm sure there will be a pattern. I've been noticing the rhythm of my writing a lot lately. I need to write more and experiment more (in my writing) to see if my theory is correct, though. So, watch this space?

Good news for October is Ben has re-started the excellent blog How Men Make Love In The Twentieth Century, and was nice enough to ask me to contribute a story, which I did, which you can read here. The brief this time was, "a story inspired by geometry". Ben's own story, Perspective, is beautiful. You need to read it now. Thank you.
