Review My Work / Re: First chapters of my middle grade fiction novel
« Last post by Rantideva on February 14, 2019, 11:27:29 AM »
I like the story.  I like your writing style of drawing analogies like "The rest of my family more resembles a fire hydrant: short, stocky and solid as steel. Me, I’m giraffe tall and thin enough to be concerned when the wind blows". 

This is minor, but just reading the first chapter, I wasn't sure how old this child is (I know the pitch says he is 12).  I think YA stories are the way to go!

Thanks, Jan! Hahaha no worries, Bobar will be immortalized forever in song and in the memories of those who were fortunate enough to see him in the arena!

You welcome, Eli.   Does any of your heroes ever survive....?  :'(   Just one? Or is that for the final flash story in the book? 
Regardless, you have great writing talent.     Jan

The Coffee Shop / Green tomatoes?
« Last post by ZULUMOZ on February 14, 2019, 03:58:48 AM »
As I am unable to continue growing tomato plants in my greenhouse at this time, I have kept the red ones and decided to turn the green ones into chutney.

Here is the recipe

750g green tomatoes
350g shallots
200 g cooking apples
300ml malt vinegar
2 red chillies
peeled fresh root ginger
100g raisins
1 tsp salt
200g brown sugar

Put tomatoes, shallots or onions and apples in a large heavy-based pan with half the vinegar
Bring to the boil and cook 30 minutes until tender. Put chillies, ginger and mustard seed in a muslin bag and bruise with a heavy rolling pin.
Add to the pan with the raisins
Cook on low heat with the rest of the sugar and vinegar, stir well until the sugar dissolves
Cook low heat for an hour
Remove the spice bag and pot into sterilised jars whilst the chutney is warm.  Seal and leave for six weeks to mature.

Should be ready in time for Christmas with all those cold meats.

I love sci-fi/fantasy so this is right up my alley.  I really enjoyed it and would definitely read more.  Great set up for the story.  The only downfall is that you are introduced to a lot of characters really fast.
