Flash Fiction Friday – The Fog

Yesterday evening it was decided that my at-home RPG group, the one where I’m the GM, will begin a campaign of Blades in The Dark (created by the brilliant John Harper) our next session. I’m very excited to be running this system. I’ve been watching a fair few games of it played online and the mechanics seem awesome, and the aesthetics Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – The Fog

Twice Fortnightly – Happy Easter

Hello lovelies!  Hope your Easter weekend was nice and relaxing. Mine was quite busy (in a good way) with writing and contained a lot of food. Frankly, that’s all I want out of a weekend! I managed to completely blank on my Flash Fiction Friday post, only realizing sometime in the early afternoon on Saturday that I hadn’t done it. Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Happy Easter

Twice Fortnightly – Logging Lapse

Last week was a weird week, writing wise. I noted down a total of 7h in my writing log of my 10h goal (would’ve been 9h except I folded to my conscience and spent my Sunday evening reading for class)… but I could swear I did more writing than that! I keep looking at the log and going “but surely Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Logging Lapse

Flash Fiction Friday – Objectionable

Odd little piece tonight, inspired by Great Expectations. Without further ado: “You should know,” she said, a haughty look on her proud features as she overlooked the garden. “That I don’t have a heart.” “I know that,” I replied. “But why should I care?” She looked surprised then, the first genuine reaction I’d seen in her all night. She quickly smoothed Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Objectionable

Twice Fortnightly – New Month, New Page

How did it get to be April already? The beginning of the year went at a leisurely pace for me but March just galloped by! This is a big month for me. First month in over 6 years without a stable income. It feels wrong to say I’m unemployed, because I’m registered in some temping agencies where it should be Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – New Month, New Page

Flash Fiction Friday- Shadow Wolves

For once, my Flash Fiction Friday piece wasn’t written today. Let’s get right to it: “Do not provoke me, little pup!” she spat, opening her fingers wide with a flourish of her wrist. Ana didn’t flinch, stood as tall as ever. They were face to face, just a foot or two apart, and neither would budge. In the corner of my eye Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday- Shadow Wolves

Twice Fortnightly – Last Week on the Job

This week is my last week at my current day job. Today I had the day off, but I’m working Tues-Fri. I’ve got a slew of stuff to finish, but I’m not sure how much time it’ll really take. I’ve never had to “finish up” a job before, for the past 6 years I’ve generally been able to say “oh, Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Last Week on the Job

Flash Fiction Friday – The Other Dimension

I asked Twitter for writing prompts for tonight, and a good Twitter-friend, Signý suggested I write about me and my friends getting sucked into another dimension. So I did. Me and her, more specifically. Here we go: “Uh-oh,” I said when the rift in reality appeared directly adjecent to my coffee table. “That doesn’t look good at all.” The next Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – The Other Dimension

Twice Fortnightly – Computer Woes

Hello lovelies, I hope this Monday is treating you well so far. I’ve had a calm day myself, a bit of volunteering, lunch with a friend and some practicing for my exam tomorrow. The topic is English Syntax, Phonetics & Phonology, and Semantics. All fun topics. It should go okay. I doubt I’ll get an A, but maybe a B and Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Computer Woes

Flash Fiction Friday – Free Will

For today’s Flash Fiction Friday, I used Seventh Sanctum’s What-If-Inator. It’s a fun prompt generator, which draws on a lot of historical or literary figures, places and events to generate prompts. I’ve used it before for Flash Fiction Friday. Just once I think, for this piece about Joan of Arc. Today the prompt I picked was this: what if… the Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Free Will
