Announcement: Quiz Time

Hey everyone. Hope you had a lovely weekend.

As part of my promotion for my new website http://www.alexanderraphaelwriter.com/ (which you all supported wonderfully on my last post), I’m doing a 40 question quiz on topics you’ll find on my blog. So a nice mix of things like music, sport, literature will be on there, plus a few others.

There’s no video log on needed and all the answers will be multiple choice, so if you don’t know the answer there’s still a chance you’ll get it right. All you have to do is click on the link at 8pm UK time sharp on Tuesday. Hope you can play. Feel free to ask any questions if you want any more information.

You’ve all been part of my writing journey and I wanted to share my new website with you. I’ll still be blogging here (try just and stop me) but wanted a place solely for promoting my creative work. It will feature links to my works as well as some of my poems. What do you think of the site? Let me know what you think by clicking on the link below.

Line(s) of the Day #TheWeddingSinger

Wedding Singer Adam sandler and drew barrymore

Julia: May I ask what happened with Linda?
Robbie: She wasn’t the right one, I guess.
Julia: Did you have any idea she wasn’t the right one when you were together?
Robbie: I should have. Uh, I remember we went to the Grand Canyon one time. We were flying there and I’d never been there before and Linda had, so you would think that she would give me the window seat but she didn’t and… not that that’s a big deal, you know. It’s just there were a lot of little things like that. I know that sounds stupid…
Julia: Not at all. I think it’s the little things that count.

Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler in the 80s set romcom The Wedding Singer (1998), where a failing musican must learn to love again after being ditched at the altar.

Line(s) of the Day #BetterCallSaul

Saul Goodman

Saul Goodman is… He’s the last line of defense for the little guy. Are you getting sold down the river? He’s a life raft. You getting stepped on, he’s a sharp stick. You got Goliath on your back, Saul’s the guy with the slingshot. He’s a righter of wrongs. He’s friend to the friendless. That’s Saul Goodman.

Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) in the Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul (2015 – ), which tells of a con man’s transformation into a criminal law specialist.

Gr8at: #TwoSentenceHorror

I saw an article on Two Sentence Horror Stories that shows how a skilled writer can tell a story even in a few words. These are my favourites, but you can find more here nd plenty more under #TwoSentenceHorror Which one chills you most?

I can see one year into the future.
Today the noise stopped.

While tidying my laboratory, I came across an unfamiliar notebook and opened the first page. 
“Warning: The subject still thinks he is the scientist.”

“I’ve always wondered, what’s the scythe for anyway?” I asked, as Death escorted me.”
“Protection,” he answered nervously.  

I told the genie that for my third and final wish, I wanted my family to be happy.
And I started fading. 

The driver wasn’t very chatty, so I checked my phone. 
“Hey it’s your Uber. I’m outside.” 

During dinner, she told me she knew my deep dark secret.
As she chewed her burger, I knew she was bluffing. 

I decided to kill off a few characters in the book I’m writing.
It would definitely spice up my autobiography a little. 

As I woke up in the middle of the night, I heard Alexa speak.
“OK, the security alarms have been disabled.”
