Flash Fiction Friday – The Place in the Clouds

I often have flashes of inspiration when I’m in a car. Maybe it’s just because I don’t ride in cars very often and that makes it a little bit of a liminal space for me, associated with holidays and family events. This idea came to me from a truly spectacular cloudscape I saw today. I hope you enjoy it. The Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – The Place in the Clouds

Flash Fiction Friday – Amends

What’s this? Flash fiction Friday on a Monday? Preposterous! No but seriously, that’s just how it goes sometimes. I wanted to write this on Friday after finishing my play-through of an absolutely gorgeous game called Fated, where you move through a story with (and date) Shakespeare characters. Well, sort of. If you like visual novels or dating games, I very Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Amends

Flash Fiction Friday – Unreality

Okay yeah, it’s Sunday but here we are. Today’s tiny piece is brought to you by Sims 4 and the Star Trek holodeck. Enjoy!

Just a little thing based on a dream 🙂 Hope you enjoy it! An excess of ranch The first few time it had happened, I didn’t even really notice.

If Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – An excess of ranch

Flash Fiction Friday – Slice of Pandemic Life

Excuse the blithe title, I couldn’t think of what else to call it. Just a little snippet, plucked right out of my day. Maybe not a story as such but oh well. Enjoy!

Flash Fiction Friday – Loneliness and Hatches

I feel like I haven’t written flash fic in about three years. But I’m back! Wooh! Today’s piece is a bit macabre, and inspired by the creepy basement under my parents’ summer home that a small part of my brain is always worried about falling into. Loneliness and Hatches They all said that it was loneliness and isolation that killed Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Loneliness and Hatches

Flash Fiction Friday – Death Words

Today’s flash fic piece was based on a prompt from Seventh Sanctum! And yes, the title is a bad D&D pun. Death Words She was absolutely positive he would be speaking, and we all knew what that meant. A few years ago, we might have debated the issue, might’ve doubted what she said but by now everybody knew that Aunt Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Death Words

I don’t know quite where this one came from, it just did. Enjoy!
