Words..

speech

“Speech is a virtue”, insisted Dan.

 “Opinions differ” countered Sarah.
“If we could not speak, we would not have been here” said Dan.
“Exactly” said Sarah “we would not have been where we are now” she said, rather wistfully.
They had grown old together and it felt good – these little breaks that they had, time spent with each other, talking, reminiscing about their kids who they had not seen in a while.
“Speech is a curse” said Sarah, vehemently.  “Let’s not argue anymore, Sarah” said Dan.  “Come on, dinner is served.  Let’s eat” he said.

Flapping their colourful wings, both the captive circus parrots swooped down towards the fat earthworm.

Gauri dons many hats. Of  a wife, a mom, a teacher and more.  Apart from working as a full time English teacher  in Hong Kong, she also raises and nurtures two children.  Her family means the world to her and life is a happy roller coaster ride. She blogs at http://tiny-tidbits.blogspot.hk/.  Originally intended as a means to preserve memories for posterity, Tiny Tidbits now plays host to a wide range of issues, thoughts, musings, raves and rants.

Mission Statement

Who are we? We are writers. And here, in this space, we put pride and passion back into writing. We give ourselves and each other creative freedom and respect.

* We create an environment where content generation does not entail degeneration of inspiration and spirit.
* We create content that we believe in and identify with.
* We recognise that to create is always of more value than to berate.
*We critique without malice and arrogance.

This site is about us writers, what we stand for but more importantly, about creating something valuable, inclusive, thought-provoking. In this space, we do not just stand for ourselves but for all those who listen to a compelling inner voice that tells them, "Create!"
