May 2016 Creative Writing Competition

The month’s competition theme, ‘On The Road’ was set by Lostinwords:

Your story could be about tramps, hitch-hikers, itinerant workers, wandering minstrels, gypsies – anyone whose home is the road. There are those who are on the road to somewhere while others are getting away. Then there are those whose job is tied to the road – drivers of buses, lorries, cabs for example. I think there’s plenty of scope here. So, jump into your automobile, turn up the music volume, fold the roof down and speed off into the unknown. As Leonard Cohen wrote:

“You try the handle of the road, it opens, do not be afraid”.
