This time the theme of the July/August 2018 TCWG short story competition is ‘A Day in the Life’:

“A story that follows the life of someone or some thing over the period of one day.
A day that could be either remarkable or simply boring ( and good luck with the latter). 😂
Seadams would particularly welcome stories of an inanimate object (for instance the passage of an objet d’art through an auction room or through the hands of a burglar or fence), or any other interpretation that could properly be considered as a story pertaining to a person, an animal, a being, or an inanimate object during any 24 hour period.”

My story, The ‘Daisy Dancer’ was inspired by a trip with Pavlovaqueen to seek out a boat once belonging to her friend, and launched by and named after her friend. All the details of the friend’s story have been changed and some new twists constructed. Most of my story is set on a single day though there is a short follow up section some years later.
