Twice Fortnightly – Dialing it Back a Bit

You know, typing this blog post title has made be realize that the word dial is not spelled the way I expected it. The i-a sequence really doesn’t seem to jibe with the pronunciation. Aaaanyway, that is not what I am here to write about today. Not at all! It’s Monday, and on Mondays I sit down to tell you Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Dialing it Back a Bit

Flash Fiction Friday – Terracotta on White

I’ve been away this weekend, and since the internet connection up there is a bit dodgy, I decided to just type up a flash fiction piece but not post it until I got back home tonight. I typed up a blog post, too, detailing a problem I was having with a recent story idea, which connects to the piece below. Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Terracotta on White

Twice Fortnightly – Weird Week Was Weird

Last week was weird, guys. It was busy, though I suppose not excessively so, but it just ended up being so different from what I expected that I felt slightly off-kilter for most of the week. I ended up working with my day job on Saturday (lolwut?) which just threw my whole plan for the week off both because Saturday Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Weird Week Was Weird

Twice Fortnightly – Steady Progress

Another week, another Monday! As of today I’ve had the first session with 3 out of the 4 modules I’m taking this term and they’ve all been fantastic. I am quite sure tomorrow’s first Phonology session will be equally great. This is gonna be a fun term! And last night, I finally pledged for some stuff on Patreon which I’ve been meaning Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Steady Progress

Flash Fiction Friday – A Little Temperance

Last night on the stream, I decided to write some flash fiction for my new D&D character, Temperance, a dragonborn monk. Here it is: The girl dipped the rag into the water bowl and then wrung it out, black-scaled little hands twisting the excess water out of the torn, stained fabric. ​”Stupid Father Illethor,” she mumbled as she bent over Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – A Little Temperance

Twice Fortnightly – Fall Term 2017

Hey there, lovelies. Another Tuesday, another late Monday blog, hah. I had a very busy day yesterday, and by the time it was evening I was so tired that I forgot everything about my (recently somewhat lacking) blogging schedule. Whoops! Last night, I had a meeting with my new job to prepare and participate in, which meant a lot of Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Fall Term 2017

Flash Fiction Friday – Meet-Cute Aborted

I saw a pretty boy today, so I wrote this: She’d just shoved her phone back in her pocket after answering a text when she spotted him. He looked like a slimmer Thor, a face at once handsome and beautiful and just the right amount of beard. Blond hair, just wind-tussled enough, spilled down to his shoulders, a few tresses Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Meet-Cute Aborted

Flash Fiction Friday – The Dandelion

I wasn’t sure what to write for Flash Fiction Friday today, and ended up looking at random gifs for prompts. I found this one pretty quick, searching for “purple”. Here we go: The evening sky was painted in reds and oranges, a thin veil of clouds over the setting sun. She picked the cup up off of the small table Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – The Dandelion

Flash Fiction Friday – Out of the Oven

It’s Friday! Today’s flash fiction piece may or may not be based on real events (on that note, you should check out my friend’s Twitch channel: twitch.tv/geminick_). Here we go: Ding! “Oh, they’re ready! I’m so excited!” the witch said, clapping her hands together as she stood up from the kitchen table. “I wonder how they turned out! Come on, Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Out of the Oven

Twice Fortnightly – Another Kind of Vacation.

There’s a thing that happens sometimes on Sunday evenings, where I suddenly realized that I haven’t opened my bullet journal for about two days and that my weekend to-do list in it is mostly blank. That’s not a shortcoming of the bullet journal system; it’s served me very well for the near-year I’ve been using it and has been an Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Another Kind of Vacation.
