About AnnaMayZing


Hi, I'm Anna. I came here from a related site to share my work with you. I have been writing now for some six years (as at 2019) and I have grown to love it.
My writing has matured immensely.
I didn't have much that I could share when I came here but now I do! Poems, short stories, micro-fiction and a novel which is growing ever longer. I hope that you enjoy what I produce as much as I enjoy writing it for you.

Thank you, Sara. I think I get it now. We have stew and dumplings here which, although complete different items, appear to be similar in principal. I am thinking that 'hardtack' from which your Biscuits are derived would be your equivalent to, but not the same as, our Military Ration oat biscuits which could be eaten dry or mixed with hot milk to form a kind of porridge.

More Coffee, please. <img src="/images/emoticons/hello.gif" alt="hello2"> <img src="/images/emoticons/icon_smile.gif" alt="icon_smile">

By biscuits, they mean this:


And the gravy is sausage gravy, which is lighter in colour and has its own rather distinct flavour. Biscuits and gravy is one of the those things that I inevitably make a beeline for when I'm South of the border. Mercifully for my circulatory system, it is fairly rare up here.

Biscuits and gravy don't exist this side of the pond, so far as I know. The picture you show looks like a scone to me but that would be even worse! Is it some kind of pastry... or dumpling, perhaps?

I'll just sit here with a strong black crema and scratch my head a little... <img src="/images/emoticons/dontknow.gif" alt="dontknow">

Morning Inspired Stories Spacers. Got hot water and coffee waiting for anyone who comes dragging in. Rumors of biscuits and gravy being served, sooner or later,are being investigated.

My 'Listening in the Rain' story has defied logic and good taste to receive a tenth vote! :) Many thanks to all who voted. This means there are now two entries on the SS 'Story Picks' list. Remember, vote early and, if you can figure out how, vote often on all SS stories.

Recommended Read Remembrance Challenge: Remembrance

Sunday morning, cold, damp and miserable. The dark rain-clouds which had, less than an hour previously, let fall a deluge of freezing rain upon the fields and hills surrounding the small Pennine village, were beginning to break. Their stark edges becoming wisps of pale grey. For the men and women who had gathered around the well-kept war memorial, the weather was a mere inconvenience....

The Long Road Home. Chapter 12

Brenner. December 15 th 1943   For the first time in many months, Katarina and Maria found that they had a little time to relax.

The Red Dress

Back in the spring, my husband and I went to visit a 1940s Weekend. There were many people there dressed in the fashions and uniforms of those days. There were vehicles and stalls and it really was a wonderful weekend. An escape from the humdrum repetitiveness of my daily life. As I walked, arm in arm with my husband, Philip, I took in the sights, sounds and even tastes of the Forties....

Back to school Challenge: Class Distinction.

“Morrison!” “Yes, Sister?” “Your skirt is too short. Kneel on the desk!” Sister Bernadette, The Carmelite Nun who was head of discipline and religious studies for the girls of St. Mary Magdalene Roman Catholic High School, tapped the desk in front of me with her wooden ruler. Obediently, I climbed onto my chair and knelt upon the flat wooden surface of the desk as commanded. Without...

The Long Road Home. Chapter 10.

Rome. November 21 st , 1943   “Maria, I'm troubled.” The two sisters were sitting by the window in their room, watching the rivulets of rainwater cascading down the other side of the glass. Every now and then, a gust of wind would divert the flow, creating new tracks. Without taking her eyes from the fascinating scene, Maria asked why. “It has been a week now. Larry is...

Escape to the West

Erika Hoffmann was afraid as she walked through the dark, rain-soaked streets of Eisenach, a small town just inside the border of East Germany. She should not have been out at this hour, ninety minutes after the curfew of ten o’clock which had been imposed in January. The Soviet rulers had been worried about people attempting to escape to the west and if she was caught by the Stasi who...

The Long Road Home Chapter 9

Rome. November 03 rd , 1943   The revelation that Staff Sergeant Lawrence T. Bowman was Jewish was a shock to Katarina. To her, it mattered not a bit but, for some reason, she had never really thought about the religion of anyone outside of her own world. Americans, English, all those whom Germany was fighting were just people but, suddenly, this young man was in mortal danger....

The Warrior Princess. Chapter 8.

I awoke with a start. The trumpets were still sounding! Astrid, too, was awake and sitting upright. What was going on? Was that an alarm, were we being attacked? I leapt immediately from my bed and donned my cloak. Grabbing my bow and quiver I ran out of the chamber and into the courtyard. The trumpets were blowing loudly and urgently and men were lining the city walls. I ran up the steps...

Moon Challenge: Ticket to the Moon

It had been hot, stifling hot and, having been stuck in her sweltering, non-air-conditioned office all day Carrie-Ann was glad to be out in the fresh evening air. It was the middle of June and England was baking in a record-breaking heatwave. Even with all the windows opened wide and a fan on every desk, the air that was circulating was still too warm. For once, the management had seen...

I seem to have missed your birthday which is very remiss of me, but I’m so busy these days that I hardly ever log on - lots to do around polio eradication. Last June I was in Rhineland Hesse for a few days with friends from Belgium, Holland and Germany who all think that the U.K. has gone mad. Will it ever be so easy to travel in Europe again?
