Flash Fiction Friday – Free Will

For today’s Flash Fiction Friday, I used Seventh Sanctum’s What-If-Inator. It’s a fun prompt generator, which draws on a lot of historical or literary figures, places and events to generate prompts. I’ve used it before for Flash Fiction Friday. Just once I think, for this piece about Joan of Arc. Today the prompt I picked was this: what if… the Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Free Will

Twice Fortnightly – Managing my Time Management

Last week was a weird week. Busy but not wildly so, but my mood was a bit all over the place. I only managed 6 out of my 9 hours of writing, largely because I had some kind of motivation crash on Sunday and just ended up watching the Gilmore Girls special all day instead. So… That’s unfortunate. I think Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Managing my Time Management

Flash Fiction Friday – The Door

I think I’ve had a FFF post called The Door before, but maybe not… feels like I have. Either way I can’t think of a better day for this one. Not sure where it came from, it just came. She had never opened the door before. It had always been there, she thought, ever since she could remember. Not large and Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – The Door

Twice Fortnightly – Taking It Up A Notch

My cold is still going strong. Well, strong-ish, and slowly diminishing thankfully. It put a bit of a damper on my writing progress last week, but hey… now is a new week. But first, last week in review: I spent about 12 hours writing or on writing-related activities. Less than I’d hoped, but more than I expected by week’s end. Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Taking It Up A Notch

Flash Fiction Fraturday – Go Time

Last night was one of those nights when I started everything way too late, and thus by the time I got to Flash Fiction Friday on my to-do list I was far too tired to actually do it. Almost made the same mistake again today, but I caught myself in time (yay me!). Here’s a random little thing based on something Continue reading Flash Fiction Fraturday – Go Time

Twice Fortnightly – Sniffles and Time Off

This week, I took time off work to focus on my writing. This morning, I woke up with my throat feeling like sandpaper. Typical. Hopefully I’ll get some stuff done anyway. But first, the recap of last week: I spent 7h writing. I worked a little on #12for12stories but didn’t finish the draft. I attended a write-in and worked on Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Sniffles and Time Off

Orryn Reborn – On Removing Magic

Tonight I begun the rewrite of Going Home that I mentioned here on the blog a few weeks ago. As such, I thought tonight would be a good time to tell you a bit more about the most significant change I’ll be making to the books and the reasoning behind it. I’m talking, of course, about the removal of magic from the Continue reading Orryn Reborn – On Removing Magic

Flash Fiction Friday – The Storm

Happy weekend, everyone! Today I started trying out a new writing site. It’s called 4TheWords and basically you defeat monsters and gain magical treasure by writing. A bit silly, but pretty cute. I used it to defeat a moth-monster by writing this: “Mama?” The gentle voice lured Annie from the depths of sleep and when her eyes blinked open, she saw Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – The Storm

Twice Fortnightly – New Effort

The past week wasn’t a great week, writing-wise. I only managed 6h out of my intended 7, and even that’s while rounding up if I’m being honest. I barely touched my conlanging, and gave myself a pass on Flash Fiction Friday because I was exhausted and empty-headed. I did work a fair bit on my #12for12stories February story, though. It’s coming along, Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – New Effort

Twice Fortnightly – Oh, it’s Monday!

Monday night. Long day. Can’t brain. Here’s week: Wrote for 7h. For once didn’t cram 2-3h into Sunday evening. Did Flash Fiction Friday. Started working on my February #12for12stories. It’s about a vampire. Brainstormed about the 3rd (and fourth) Orryn novella as well as the Orryn 1+2 rewrites. Did some conlanging, which I’ve been getting into lately but not really mentioned yet. Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Oh, it’s Monday!
