Worldbuilding Wednesday – My Fundamental Questions

Since I didn’t do my worldbuilding stream Sunday, I don’t have any fun tidbits of progress to share with you today. Instead, I want to talk a little about one of the hardest things about worldbuilding (especially if you’re new): where to start? There are a lot of different advice on this out there, and the advice I’m about to Continue reading Worldbuilding Wednesday – My Fundamental Questions

Flash Fiction Friday – The Chosen One

I’m reading a YA fantasy series right now and it has me thinking about Chosen Ones. Not my favorite trope all told, though not my least favorite either. Recently it occurred to me how rarely the Chosen One in a book knows they’re special, how usually they dismiss the strange things that happen to them and someone else has to Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – The Chosen One

Worldbuilding Wednesday – When Dots Connect

I ended up not posting a Worldbuilding Wednesday last week, as some of you may have noticed. I probably had a good reason at the time, but to be honest I genuinely can’t remember what it was. Oh well! In the end, skipping a post turned out to be a good choice because my worldbuilding stream last Sunday ended up Continue reading Worldbuilding Wednesday – When Dots Connect

Flash Fiction Fraturday – Aquamarine

I wasn’t going to catch up on Flash Fiction Friday after I missed it yesterday, but then I had a tiny, very silly idea. Here you go: Aquamarine Steph awoke, and for a moment she wasn’t sure why she felt so amused. As the dream came back to her, she chuckled softly and rubbed her face. Ridiculous… She reached for Continue reading Flash Fiction Fraturday – Aquamarine

Worldbuilding Wednesday – Too Much, Too Soon

Reader, I abandoned the challenge.  But honestly, that’s okay. It was a little too much a little too soon, and since it was a spontaneous decision to join and not part of my original plan for the month, I’m not kicking myself about it. I lasted about 5 days before dropping out. It wasn’t actually the writing itself that was Continue reading Worldbuilding Wednesday – Too Much, Too Soon

Flash Fiction Friday – Report on the Demise of the Smelters

As I mentioned in my newest Worldbuilding Wednesday post (they’re back, yay), I’m currently doing a worldbuilding challenge arranged by World Anvil. For Thursday’s entry (though I didn’t write it until today), I wrote a small article called False Children, about a sort of monster in one of my worlds. Afterward the piece below popped into my head, so I Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Report on the Demise of the Smelters

Worldbuilding Wednesday – The Return + Inktober Writer’s Gauntlet

Lately I’ve been itching to breathe a little more life back into my blog. Other than my Flash Fiction Friday posts, I don’t really post anything regularly and I miss the days when I used to. What I miss the most, though, are my Worldbuilding Wednesday posts. I honestly can’t remember why I stopped writing those. I guess I just Continue reading Worldbuilding Wednesday – The Return + Inktober Writer’s Gauntlet

Flash Fiction Friday – The Tiniest Friend

It’s Friiiiday! Look at me actually posting flash fiction! I was doing some window shopping on Etsy earlier today and found this shop full of adorable little fantasy figurines! So cute! They sort of combined with the Tea Dragon Society in my head and created this little piece. Hope you like it! The Tiniest Friend Ellie smiled as she walked Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – The Tiniest Friend

Flash Fiction Friday – The Portal

About time I got back to these posts! This one is inspired by a perpetually out of order stall in a bathroom at a nearby mall. I gotta admit, now that I’ve written this I kinda wanna turn it into a longer story… Hope you like it! The Portal “What the fuck??”Tina blinked slowly at the absurd sight that stretched Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – The Portal

Flash Fiction Friday – Pocket Watches and Cocoa

Tonight I played a board game that’s all about when things (inventions, historical events etc) happened in relation to other things. While playing, I was surprised to find out that apparently portable watches a thing before cocoa first came to Europe. I was so surprised – I would’ve guessed it was the other way around. So I wrote this little Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Pocket Watches and Cocoa
