Flash Fiction Friday – Hunter

I used a prompt generator, a Discord bot called Writer-Bot, for my prompt tonight. The line was “I had never woken up in the middle of an impact crater before”. I changed it to present tense, and am pretty happy with the results. Enjoy! Hunter I have never woken up in the middle of an impact crater before. All told, Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Hunter

Flash Fiction Friday – One O Too Many

It’s Friday! Happy Friday! I actually have flash fiction today. As so often, this one is based on a prompt. Today’s prompt came from Writer-Bot, a Discord utility bot I use that has prompts and other stuff, and it was the following: ” A soldier has to rethink their strategy after a spelling error proves it wasn’t a dragoon terrorising Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – One O Too Many

Flash Fiction Friday – Little Stars

I was listening to a podcast episode recently that talked about the urban legend of black-eyed kids and it gave me some ideas, one of which was the below. Enjoy! Little Stars  “About fucking time!” Elle hissed as Tam slipped in through the door and closed it behind them with their hip. “What took you so long?” Lou asked, a Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Little Stars

Flash Fiction Friday – Inciting Incident

Just a little something I threw together because I was thinking about how rarely we get portal fantasies and other real-world adjacent fantasy stories with adult protagonists. Hope you like it! Inciting Incident It wasn’t the lemon curd that was the problem. Lydia was like 98% sure of that At first she’d thought it was too sweet, then that it Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Inciting Incident

Flash Fiction Friday – Lucid Dreaming

Tonight’s flash fiction is unusually short for being me, and the idea came from an episode of Clear Skies (a totally rad Star Trek rpg that you should totally watch). Hope you enjoy it! Lucid Dreaming She was having the dream again. The landscape was a mess of roiling, twisted shapes, painted in putrid colors. Distant screeches tore at her Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Lucid Dreaming

Flash Fiction Friday – Confession

Tonight’s Flash Fiction Friday is inspired by the following prompt from the writing bot on my Discord: [268] Whenever you speak, people hear you speaking in their native language. Most people are surprised and delighted. The cashier at McDonalds you’ve just talked to is horrified. “Nobody’s spoken that language in thousands of years.” I didn’t quite play it straight, instead Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Confession

Flash Fiction Friday – Falling, Flying

I was poking about my Scrivener files last night and found a little thing, just two sentences, that I wrote back in 2015. I think I got the idea from a dream, and it’s just been sitting there since. I guess it just spoke to me somehow, so here it is in a little more detail: Falling, Flying The wind Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Falling, Flying

Flash Fiction Friday – Judgement

I feel like I say this every time I post these days but: wow, it’s been a while, huh? Anyway, here is a slightly macabre little piece, inspired by something I dreamed this morning. I hope you enjoy it! Judgement Alena saw a figure moving through the dark.  They had all stepped into the Hall and sat down on the Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Judgement

Flash Fiction Friday – Going Up

I wasn’t sure what to write tonight, so I asked the bot in my Discord server for a prompt and got the following: “As the elevator door is about to close, you lock eyes with someone on the other side – someone from the past.” Somehow this resulted in a weirdly introspective piece, looking back and forward at the same Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Going Up

Flash Fiction Fraturday – What Love Means

I’ve been watching a lot of Star Trek: The Next Generation lately and having a lot of feelings about how Deanna Troi is treated as a character and the weird romantic-adjacent situations she keeps being placed in by the show’s writers (and how little screen time her friendship with Beverly Crusher gets). So I decided to write some fanfic. I’m Continue reading Flash Fiction Fraturday – What Love Means
