7wishes Table of Contents

The stories of 7wishes were written to keep my head above water, posted to alleviate the loneliness and isolation of nightshift, and have moved on from their humble bloggy beginnings as these things are wont to do.

The collection has been gussied up so as not to be an embarrassment in polite society and is currently represented by Sally Harding of the Cooke Agency (Canada).

  • for a day when the gravity is turned down
  • for a pony
  • for a day in which we are only allowed to talk to strangers, and are not allowed to acknowledge anyone known to us
  • for real true amazing sleep
  • that there is a little door in my room, only big enough to crawl through on my belly, with paint so faded and peeled it is no colour, it is all colours
  • for silence
  • for them to finally drop the bomb
  • for a bigger, better, blimptastic balloon
  • for a world without secrets or strangers
  • for a rock to hide under
  • to save the world, one light globe at a time
  • for foresight
  • for the world to respect people on nightshift and during the day just stop it, seriously now, we’re trying to sleep
  • for consequences and crocodiles
  • for earthquakes
  • for more time
  • to be king, I hear it's good to be king
  • to live in the path of some great migration
  • for it to be bleeding obvious
  • sharing is caring
  • for a bear
  • for the revolution

  1. Thank you for sharing Tessa, I don't think you realise how treasured these gorgeous dreamscapes you paint with your words are to me. I suspect I'm not alone in this regard either.
