A group of writers mainly in the UK Authors forum have produced a new release collection: Personal Bests Journal.
I interloped into UK Authors years ago in order to travel on their UKAway writing retreats and so I experienced such exotic writing resorts as Greece, Northern Cyprus, Southern Cyprus, Carmarthen and Newcastle!
Selected from more than 130 submissions, the 31 stories in this first edition of the Personal Best journal have been chosen and edited by short story writer, novelist and (for 16 years) Prose Editor of Gold Dust Magazine, David Gardiner.
My story has its title taken from a Zen koan (short saying bulging with meaning)
“Don’t Bite My Finger…”
The rest of the koan says because I am pointing the way. My humour to just put the biting bit in the title.
It is of a novice monk who has to hike up a mountain in order to perform an impossible task. There is ironic humour in the banter he has with a companion.
