Flash Fiction Friday – The Matchmaker

I saw this anecdote (maybe true, maybe not, no idea) somewhere on the net today about a farmer who caught his wife with one of his farmhands, and when the farmhand started to pack his stuff the farmer said they could both love her and if that wasn’t enough he’d hire another farmhand to help out. I thought that was Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – The Matchmaker

Flash Fiction Friday – Eventually

Today’s flash fic is inspired by the cashier at the board game store checking that I knew I had the kid’s version of a game. When I don’t know what to write, I seem to gravitate toward meet-cutes lately. Eventually Angie sighed and shoved the box back into her bag. What a silly thing to do! She’d just seen the Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Eventually

Flash Fiction Friday – Magpie Clones

 Have you ever had one of those dreams where things seem rather normal but then suddenly there’s one detail that just doesn’t make sense, a little thing that makes you go “this isn’t really happening, is it?”. Last night I dreamed we had a dog. Great dream, great dog. Except after a while dream-me remarked to dream-spouse “huh, that’s odd. Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Magpie Clones

Flash Fiction Friday – Re: re: Just an October hello

A lot of different media I’m consuming are touching on reincarnation and otherwise getting a new body right now, so here’s a little thing that popped into my brain.I really enjoy writing in this sort of style sometimes, letters or journal entries or that sort of thing. Hope you like it! Re: re: Just an October hello Dear Tuko, It Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Re: re: Just an October hello

Flash Fiction Friday – Waiting To Board

Technically it’s Saturday here but I go by my usual rule of “it’s Friday until I go to sleep” so here’s a Flash Fiction Friday snippet. It’s a tiny meet-cute! Waiting To Board His thumb hovered over the screen, ready to tap the moment the next, and final, question of the night. It wasn’t often he made it all the Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Waiting To Board

Flash Fiction Friday – The Perfect Cabin

Just a wee thing for you tonight… The Perfect Cabin I walk down the path, peering past the trees as I go. I search for dark brown logs, doors and window-frames painted blue, like the description said. There are so many cabins here, huddled among the pines. Small, simple ones without a lick of paint, candy-colored fairytale ones covered in Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – The Perfect Cabin

Flash Fiction Friday – New Shiny

Going a bit meta with today’s piece. I saw a prompt to write something set and a train and this was just what came to mind when I started typing. New Shiny Her favorite part was when the train pulled out of the station. It always was – that feeling of the acceleration in her gut, the slight vibration, the Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – New Shiny

Flash Fiction Friday – Perfect

I’ve been browsing a lot of gender feels-themed Pinterest boards lately and this scene popped into my head. I couldn’t pick which pronouns to use for the character, so I just didn’t use any at all. It was interesting exercise, though I feel like it made the prose a bit convoluted in places but hey – it’s just flash fiction, Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Perfect

Flash Fiction Friday – Disappointment

I’m back! About bloody time, too. Here’s a dollop of melancholia for you this Friday evening: Disappointment The waves lap leisurely at the shore and my toes dig into the sand a little with each step. I know the footprints will last only a few moments under the onslaught of the water, but my eyes are trained in front, not Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Disappointment

Flash Fiction Friday – Serving Tea

Flash! Fiction! Friday! It’s been a while, huh? This little piece is a sort of behind-the-scenes snippet from a story I started working on last year. It was originally meant to be a short story but it sorta grew into a novella. Oops! Writing this snippet really made me wanna work on that story again! Hope you enjoy it.
