“The sea was loud and roaring as the wind picked up and the weather grew gloomier. On one side, rolling hills grew from the ground like fat bellies, swollen and sore. A baby was crying somewhere. Or was it a bird?”
Struck is a novella about a man and his demons. When aspiring writer Gareth receives some terrible news, he flees from daily life and takes refuge in a disused caravan park on the eerie outskirts of the Welsh coast, where he intends to work on his novel. Will Gareth outrun the ghosts of his past, or will be face them head on?
Struck was written as part of my MA final writing project. It is available to read for free via Tablo.
