Whenever I'm bored, I like to skip stones. I find this a great way to chill and relax. If I can find a really flat pebble and the wind is just right, I can sometimes get ten skips. I can, honest! My miserable neighbours don't like it though. They're always out to spoil my fun. One of them swore from his bedroom window, shook his fist and bellowed I should skip stones on the lake, not down the street. Pfft! I wouldn't have anything to aim at? Neighbours!
Richard is a writer and author of The Eternals Series published by Creativia. A former Authonomy.com gold medalist, part of HarperCollins, Richard has had many short stories and poetry published and always feels extremely privileged each time. A prolific writer, a constant source of clearing his mind, Richard has created this website to share just some of the many poems and prose he has written that would otherwise have fallen by the wayside. Reading and writing have always been Richard's main love along with the pursuit of keeping fit. Running, walking, and anything that provides a spectacular view always feature highly for him. Running in the rain with his headphones on whilst dreaming up some future storyline is just about perfect. It would be nicer still if that run was in Switzerland or Norway, but we can't have everything. Oh, and coffee, lots and lots of coffee. View all posts by Richard Ankers
