The One-Minute Writer: Electronic/ Paper

Hosted by The One-Minute Writer

This is a topic that I have given quite a bit of thought to recently. I absolutely love paper books- the feel of them, the smell of them and the fact that they are easy to send onto other people. The only thing that's ever attracted me the idea of an electronic book is the portability. That's not enough for me, I'm afraid! Now, if they had a feature to switch from audio book (complete with human voices) to text and back whilst saving my place in the book- then I might be interested!

The One-Minute Writer: Loss

This post took me one minute only and is staight out of my head onto the page, therefore please excuse any typos.

I stood peering out of my swollen eyes at the bird which lay in my open hand. It simply stayed where it was, and I knew it would never move again. I nudged its head, which swayed under my touch and then fell back into my palm.
