Flash Fiction Friday – Inciting Incident

Just a little something I threw together because I was thinking about how rarely we get portal fantasies and other real-world adjacent fantasy stories with adult protagonists. Hope you like it! Inciting Incident It wasn’t the lemon curd that was the problem. Lydia was like 98% sure of that At first she’d thought it was too sweet, then that it Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Inciting Incident

Flash Fiction Friday – Someday

Presented without comment: Someday I imagine there’ll be sun spilling in through the window, painting golden streaks across the bedspread and the pillows that trail all the way to the door. I imagine there’s birdsong coming in through a slightly opened window. I imagine I’ve been up for a little while, sipping tea out of one of their mugs and Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Someday

Flash Fiction Friday – Lucid Dreaming

Tonight’s flash fiction is unusually short for being me, and the idea came from an episode of Clear Skies (a totally rad Star Trek rpg that you should totally watch). Hope you enjoy it! Lucid Dreaming She was having the dream again. The landscape was a mess of roiling, twisted shapes, painted in putrid colors. Distant screeches tore at her Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Lucid Dreaming

Flash Fiction Friday – Confession

Tonight’s Flash Fiction Friday is inspired by the following prompt from the writing bot on my Discord: [268] Whenever you speak, people hear you speaking in their native language. Most people are surprised and delighted. The cashier at McDonalds you’ve just talked to is horrified. “Nobody’s spoken that language in thousands of years.” I didn’t quite play it straight, instead Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Confession

Flash Fiction Friday – Falling, Flying

I was poking about my Scrivener files last night and found a little thing, just two sentences, that I wrote back in 2015. I think I got the idea from a dream, and it’s just been sitting there since. I guess it just spoke to me somehow, so here it is in a little more detail: Falling, Flying The wind Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Falling, Flying

Flash Fiction Friday – Judgement

I feel like I say this every time I post these days but: wow, it’s been a while, huh? Anyway, here is a slightly macabre little piece, inspired by something I dreamed this morning. I hope you enjoy it! Judgement Alena saw a figure moving through the dark.  They had all stepped into the Hall and sat down on the Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Judgement

Flash Fiction Friday – Going Up

I wasn’t sure what to write tonight, so I asked the bot in my Discord server for a prompt and got the following: “As the elevator door is about to close, you lock eyes with someone on the other side – someone from the past.” Somehow this resulted in a weirdly introspective piece, looking back and forward at the same Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Going Up

AdventBoost 2019 – 6 Cool Computer Games

I was originally planning to post this on Christmas Eve, or maybe Christmas Day but since my third AdventBoost post got delayed, so did this one. Oh well, at least I got it in this side of the new year! I’ve been playing more computer games this year than I usually do (at least in terms of number of titles Continue reading AdventBoost 2019 – 6 Cool Computer Games

Adventboost 2019 – 6 TTRPGs I’d Love to Play!

Note: I intended to post this on the 18th, then on the 19th, the 20th etc. I really don’t know why I got so damned stuck on this post – I kept faffing about which order to put things in and how to tie them together etc. So in an effort to get this done finally, I decided to ignore Continue reading Adventboost 2019 – 6 TTRPGs I’d Love to Play!
