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

Flash Fiction Friday – One Of Those Trips

Another week, another space-themed flash fiction piece! This one isn’t intended to be a Star Trek thing but I keep using Star Trek vocab so whatever. Enjoy! Francie looked out through the large viewing window, bracing herself against the familiar jolt as the ship left orbit and the planet below began drawing further and further away. Another successful beginning to Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – One Of Those Trips

Flash Fiction Friday – Obvious Werewolf Story?

Another Friday, another Seventh Sanctum prompt. Today I used the Writing Challenge generator which gave me the following. “The story ends in a big city. The story takes place in the afternoon. During the story, there is an assassination. The story must have a werewolf in it.”. I decided to go very basic with it… but even basic stories need Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Obvious Werewolf Story?

Flash Fiction Friday – Not Batman

Couldn’t get my flash fiction done on time yesterday because I was busy finishing my Patreon exclusive short for March (yo, you should sponsor me on Patreon!). So her it is today instead! It’s a silly little thing, based on a Seventh Sanctum prompt. Enjoy! The police chief was my guiding star and the fire of my loins, but that’s Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Not Batman

Flash Fiction Friday – Docking

I’ve been watching a lot of Star Trek lately. Been making my way through The Original Series and also watching Shield of Tomorrow, a Star Trek rpg show on Geek & Sundry. This has all lead me to be in a space ship and alien sort of mood, so I wrote this little piece: ​”Attention all passengers.” The voice that came through Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Docking

Flash Fiction Friday – Just Another Monday

Another week, another Seventh Sanctum prompt! First line, as usual: All the demon lords where giggling, but what else was new? They were always giggling. In fact, if Helen didn’t know any better she’d say they always giggled extra on Monday morning when everyone else was sleepy and cranky and unhappy to be there. It would be just like them, she Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Just Another Monday

Flash Fiction Friday – The Eighth Plauge

I was battling a cold last week and ended up having a nearly writing-free week, so there was no Flash Fiction posted. But now I’m back. This week I switched my twitch schedule around so that my writing stream is on Tuesday instead of Thursdays. It works better with my university schedule this term. So, check me out there at 9 Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – The Eighth Plauge

Flash Fiction Friday – The Vessel

I was temping today and while the kids in my pre-lunch session were working independently I had a sudden flash of inspiration and wrote the following: She was in the middle of instructing a group of eight graders on what would be part of their test on demographics the following week when she heard that familiar voice in her head. Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – The Vessel

Flash Fiction Friday – Reluctant Emperor

I’ve got a tiny morsel of a fiction piece for you today. As so often, this one comes from a prompt taken from Seventh Sanctum. I never wanted to be an evil emperor. All this pillaging and burning of cities, all these hubristic, grandiose speeches… it’s just not in my nature. But you do what you’ve got to do. They Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Reluctant Emperor
