Have funny clips on social media replaced telling jokes?

This is a very random post of mine, but the other day it occurred to me that I hadn’t heard a joke for a long time.

Now of course in the last few years the surge of technology especially mobile phones has been huge and admittedly fantastic. With phones comes social media and with social media comes funny images and videos.
For me I feel that these have replaced telling jokes. I’ve done it myself, I used to love telling jokes but I haven’t for a long time, I instead say ‘Oh I saw this hilarious video the other day.’ and whip it my phone, go onto Facebook or Twitter and the video; I’ve noticed others do this also.

Not that there’s anything wrong with this, admittedly there is some funny stuff daily on the internet, but don’t you miss those sometimes cheesy, witty and hilarious jokes that stay with you and make you chuckle to yourself throughout the day?
Thinking about it, the videos and images do that too!

It’s just a thought of mine. Let me know what you think.

Inkitt’s Horror Writing Contest – ‘Alive’ by T. J. Blake

Hello there!

I have just entered a writing competition. I would really appreciate it (if you have time of course) to have a look at my short story ‘Alive’.

‘Alive’ is actually a book idea of mine in which I have started writing. I wrote it as a short story first, but now I am planning to mould it into a full novel within the next few years.
‘Alive’ is a fantasy, horror and suspense story that follows Sarah, whose life has been turned upside down after she crashes her car into a lake.

For nearly a year now I have been living a lie. My husband Jack and my two daughters Lucy and Sam believe that I am dead.”
It would be great to know what you think of it. Please read ‘Alive’ and please give it a heart and vote on the site, here’s the link for ‘Alive’ on the Inkitt’s Horror Writing Contest:

The Endurance Series (2013-2015)

Endurance by T. J. Blake available now
Endurance  (The Endurance Series: Book 1) (2013) (Mystery, Horror, Suspense, Dystopia, Science Fiction)

Available on Amazon and Waterstones

London is silent. Severed bodies lie amongst the rubble. What once was a lively city is a now a murderous grave, enclosed in smoke and ash. The cause of the destruction is unknown. Left haunted and terrified, survivor Tom Williams confronts the brutal, mutilated streets as he fights to uncover the truth. Could he be the last hope to restore normality?

Endurance: Apocalypse (The Endurance Series: Book 2) (2014)(Mystery, Horror, Suspense, Dystopia, Science Fiction)

London is intolerable; the infected dominate the ravaged streets. Miller has gained full control and takes advantage of his authority, experimenting with the virus in an attempt to form a new superhuman army.

“Danni entered the station, the breeze was the only sound, eerily howling through the underground; the station was deserted. She ran up the escalators and stood at the top of Waterloo station. Staring along the station she saw corpses scattered across the ground. Splattered and smudged blood decorated Waterloo.”

Valentines Day has arrived

It’s the day that single people detest, but it’s officially the day to be loved up and express your love to your partner by buying her gifts.
Personally I don’t really understand Valentines Day. I think it is a ploy to make some money out of people.
Wouldn’t people prefer to be surprised with flowers, chocolate and love on a random day of the year rather than a specified day?

Well that took a dark turn…

That’s enough negativity for one day.
Having said this, I will still be ‘taking part’ in valentines day with my girlfriend. I bought her a card, chocolates and a rose (I can do romance).
I also suggested going to see American Sniper for our valentines film, but she said no. Instead my suggestion of Big Hero 6 turned out to be a winner!

Everyone enjoy your day whatever you’re doing.

Another Miniature Story By Me

Well what can I say? I quite enjoy writing a 140 character story. So here’s my second which was published onto Miniature Story – 140story’s Facebook and Twitter pages at:

“I’m fascinated by birds. I follow them everywhere, on the streets, in the woods, and in their homes. It’s best at night when they’re alone.”

Any thoughts on this one?
