The Lady of Winter

If you are looking for some great seasonal short fiction and poetry take a look at the Midwinter Special 2015 by Three Drops From a Cauldron. My piece of flash fiction, The Lady of Winter, has been included in Part Two.

The Lady of Winter rules the earth whilst her sister, The Lady of Summer, sleeps,
and it is time to celebrate the season and the Festival of Midwinter...

Don’t forget, if you do have a read of it, let me know what you think to The Lady of Winter.  Feedback is always appreciated 🙂

Take care all!

Quick Note: I am behind in reading everyone’s blog at the moment, but I promise I will catch up over the next few days 🙂

  1. I just wrote a long comment with feedback but when I tried to post it, got the message that it couldn’t be posted and lost it. Short version: great, beautiful imagery and detail, very vivid, although it gets a bit repetitious and could be pared down. My main feedback would be to add more “story” — this is a description of an event, but we don’t relate to any of the characters. Even with a piece this short, you can fit in some plot — conflict, crisis, realization, disappointment. Get us inside one or more of the character’s heads to say what these events mean to them.

    • Hi Joy. Sorry it took me so long to reply – the run-up to Christmas has been terribly hectic so far! *Sigh*
      Thanks so much for your feedback. I am truly grateful. And thank you for taking the time to read my short story – you are a star! 🙂
      I understand what you mean about the lack of plot. Perhaps I should have said in the post that the piece isn’t character-driven but rather focused on the personification and symbolism of winter – or at least, that was what I had intended, though I am not sure that it came across that way. lol 🙂 I will definitely be taking your feedback on board, and perhaps even write a follow-up piece that is more character-driven and contains a little more story.
      Thanks again. Have a great week, and Merry Christmas 🙂

      • Yes, I know what you mean about hectic holiday preparing! For the type of piece, I think you can do both — personify and symbolize winter as *part* of a more personalized story that engages the reader more. Just something to challenge yourself with more for later stories. Merry Christmas!
