Flash Fiction Friday – A Thorny Twist

This past Wednesday, on Sweden’s national day, I was at a market and I saw this older woman who just had the most amazing look. She looked like a steampunk witch and I wanted to compliment her outfit but I was honestly too intimidated. I found myself thinking, though, “gosh, I’d like to write a detective story about her”. The Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – A Thorny Twist

Flash Fiction Friday – Priorities

I forgot to post this yesterday as I was out at a barbecue and came home quite late, but here is this week’s flash fiction Friday post. I start it during Sunday Morning Tea Time last week (oh hey, check out my Twitch channel!) and finished it the other day. It’s based on a prompt from the Story Generator on Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Priorities

Flash Fiction Friday – Downtime

Ah, it’s Friday! And I’ve got some flash fiction for y’all! Today’s piece is inspired by Dungeons and Dragons, and is about how sometimes adventurers need downtime… and sometimes they need some me-time. Downtime The tavern was rowdy, but when were they not? Fiddles, pipe smoke, people arguing or making out or both. Just another night in a backwaters like Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Downtime

Flash Fiction Friday – The Jailbreak

It’s been such a long time since I posted something for flash fiction Friday! But tonight, since I’ve realized my Camp NaNo project, which I thought was a 10-15k short, has ballooned into a 25k+ novella which I therefore won’t be able to actually finish by the end of the month, I decided to take some time for flash fiction Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – The Jailbreak

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
