Hi all,

Gee, this is dragging out too long – over a year without PH!

So, today I’m going to be giving you a run-down of Minerva’s blog. Here it goes:

Minerva’s Blog is called ‘Fly to Inspire’. It’s fairly new – only started last year, but still really good. Her blog is dedicated more to fan fiction and stories – which is probably what interested me so much! So far she has started writing a short story called ‘laugh’. The first few paragraph are below.

The child paid them no attention, watching snow settle on the stone houses of the village. She shifted uncomfortably in her long, green taffeta dress. She glued her eyes to the dizzying pattern on the fabric. Personally, she had preferred something simpler, but her mother had insisted and she was in no position to object.

Silently sighing, she zoned back in on the conversation of the two women, who were still in the room, unaware of the presence of the child in question.

“Mira has barely spoken and she is just reaching three years. Is this normal?” fretted the child – Mira’s – mother. She walked over to a frosted French-style window on the other end of the room and peered out at the serenity of the softly tumbling snowflakes…
