Welcome to R&R Ramblings.

A place for that brief reading escape.

Hi, I’m Mel. I’m an Australian, genre-blending word-player, who creates short weekly pieces in flash fiction, short-short stories, or poetry. It’s also where I use photos from my weekend-walkabouts as word-prompts.

As for the name R&R Ramblings, it stands for Rural Romantic Ramblings:

(R) =   Rural:

I hide in a place where most Australians consider a remote, rural location known as the Northern Territory’s Top End. Where it’s claimed there are more cattle and crocodiles than people.

(R) =   Romantic:

The dictionary claims, “…someone who is idealistic but impractical. Passionate and imaginative, rather than having order and form.”

Hello, that’s me! The writer with soon-to-be-released novels that aim for that romantic happily ever after can be found at MelAROWE.com.  As for the flash fiction on this site, I cover all genres where-ever my muse may lead me. My shorter works have been published internationally, and I’m currently the recipient of the NT’s 2017 Author Mentorship with Hachette Australia. 

(R)      Ramblings:

Again, the dictionary states, “…it is to wonder without a definite route…”

Yep, pick me! As a wanderer in not only words but on weekends exploring my unique backyard.

This site is for that quick read, read purely for entertainment. And honestly, it’s my fingertips that tap-dance across the keyboard following my imagination to produce the story of the moment.

Thank you for your visit, thank you for the follow (I hope), and I appreciate your constructive comments.

Best wishes,

Please note, I do travel on weekends where most places I venture to has no mobile signal. So, I thank you in advance for your patience, but I will get back to you. (Soonish…)
