Flash Fiction Friday – Breaking Camp

I’ve had orcs on the brain lately. I’ve been seeing so many lovely interpretations of them on Pinterest the last few weeks that I’ve started toying with the idea of writing a book set in an orcish society. To toy a little with the concept, I wrote the following: Breaking Camp “Track-makers!” Chieftain’s voice rang out over the encampment. “We Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Breaking Camp

Flash Fiction Friday – Ferrets and Fucked-Up Shoulders

I’ve posted a few snippets set in the tabletop rpg Blades in the Dark before, and since I’m currently playing in a campaign set in the system I thought it would be fun to write a snippet with my character! Isabel, more known as Sarge, is an ex-military grump who isn’t sure why she’s involved in so much weird shit Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Ferrets and Fucked-Up Shoulders

Flash Fiction Friday – The Water Ballet

My Dungeons & Dragons group are about to start a new campaign soon, which will be set in the world of one of my favorite tabletop rpg shows Critical Role. I’ll be playing a halfling druid, who I suspect will be quite adorable. We did a short session zero type thing, and I wrote this little scene taking place just Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – The Water Ballet

Flash Fiction Friday – The Rescue Mission

On Monday the boyfriend and I went to see Avengers: Infinity War in the cinema. While I did not generally like the movie, there were a few things in it I did like and one of those was the special effects for Dr. Strange’s portal powers. I don’t know what it was, but they just tickled me! So I had an idea Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – The Rescue Mission

Flash Fiction Friday – A Thorny Twist

This past Wednesday, on Sweden’s national day, I was at a market and I saw this older woman who just had the most amazing look. She looked like a steampunk witch and I wanted to compliment her outfit but I was honestly too intimidated. I found myself thinking, though, “gosh, I’d like to write a detective story about her”. The Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – A Thorny Twist

Flash Fiction Friday – Priorities

I forgot to post this yesterday as I was out at a barbecue and came home quite late, but here is this week’s flash fiction Friday post. I start it during Sunday Morning Tea Time last week (oh hey, check out my Twitch channel!) and finished it the other day. It’s based on a prompt from the Story Generator on Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Priorities

Flash Fiction Friday – Downtime

Ah, it’s Friday! And I’ve got some flash fiction for y’all! Today’s piece is inspired by Dungeons and Dragons, and is about how sometimes adventurers need downtime… and sometimes they need some me-time. Downtime The tavern was rowdy, but when were they not? Fiddles, pipe smoke, people arguing or making out or both. Just another night in a backwaters like Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Downtime

Flash Fiction Friday – The Jailbreak

It’s been such a long time since I posted something for flash fiction Friday! But tonight, since I’ve realized my Camp NaNo project, which I thought was a 10-15k short, has ballooned into a 25k+ novella which I therefore won’t be able to actually finish by the end of the month, I decided to take some time for flash fiction Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – The Jailbreak

Flash Fiction Friday – The Cross-Eyed Bear That You Gave To Me

“I’m here to remind you of the cross eye bear that you gave to me,” sang Alanis Morisette in the song You Ought to Know. But while listening to it during a car trip today, my parents heard something else. Inspired by this, I hereby introduce this week’s Flash Fiction piece, The Cross-eyed Bear That You Gave To me:   Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – The Cross-Eyed Bear That You Gave To Me

Flash Fiction Fraturday – Waiting For Monkey Analogues

I’ve been watching a lot of a Doctor Who RPG over on Geek & Sundry lately (it’s called Eric’s TBD RPG, and if you’re an Alpha subscriber you should check it out cuz it’s great!) and all the timey-wimeyness of it has had me thinking about my own timetravel-related story, whose WIP name is The Cave. So I wrote this little Continue reading Flash Fiction Fraturday – Waiting For Monkey Analogues
