Throw Me Thursday: The Succulence of Childhood

 Today I am honored to have a guest post. She’s a new voice in the blogging and literary world, but I have no doubt she will make big waves some day soon whether it be in writing, her unique artistic interpretations or bossing a large bunch of people about with great enthusiasm. Please welcome Ivy.


Flying Kitty

By Ivy

Once up a time there was a kitty. And the kitty loved to eat fruit. And he found fruit on bushes. And all the fruit he found was berries. And the berries were always juicy.

The End

Ivy is a budding young artist who enjoys painting, reading books, goofing about with her family and playing elaborate games with her peers. This is her first published work.


Because the girls and I spent yesterday in Milwaukee with Christi Craig (Writing Under Pressure) Christi knew just how enthusiastic some of us could be about “More Melon.”


About E. Victoria Flynn

Published in a variety of venues, Victoria is currently writing the first in a series of three fantasy novels based on Cornish folklore. When not taking part in a shrieking dance party or engrossed in her own little fictions, Victoria is keen on art, the natural world and people unafraid to explore their own brilliance.

    I’m totally in love with the drawing and the story! No doubt that Ivy got a whole lot of talent from her mama!

    Ivy’s Flying Kitty story has everything – the surprising charm of a fruit-eating kitty, the tension of his search for fruit and the release and relief of finding, not only fruit-bearing bushes, but berries. And of course, the last line… The berries were always juicy. Pure brilliance. That might be my new motto.

    Thanks, Ivy, for a work well written.
