I have had a couple of pieces of inspiration recently, sufficient to write two short stories. One is awaiting Cold, Wet, and Muddy's opening for voting, and the other, You Missed a Bit, is published today.

I have tried twice now to write a story I was happy with about the boy I have loved since September 1965. The first was The Walk. That, for me, failed to meet my own needs.

You Missed a Bit is a letter of love, written to and about the boy of my obsession, one he will never see though one he might recognise were he to see it. It was thus tempting to use his real name, to draw him in, assuming he searches for himself online. But the circumstances surrounding another boy in the tale, also real, made it a doubly rude thing to do.

I hope you find it worthy of your attention.
