Last night, I wrote Flash Fiction live on my Twitch stream for the first time! It was an interesting experience. A few trolls, but those were easily banned. Most of the stream was actually about other things, I conlanged some and ended up talking about worldbuilding with someone, so the flash fiction did sort of take a back seat but Continue reading Flash Fiction – Ivory Predictions
Exciting news, guys! I am in your interwebz, streaming! Technically, I started streaming in April (or was it May) with a few stray Sims 4 streams, but now I’m starting it proper. Starting this week, you can see me on my channel on Twitch on Mondays at 7 a.m. (for bullet journal prep and morning musings), on Thursdays at 10 Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Live on the Interwebz
I felt like writing something cute today, so I decided to use this meet-cute generator and write the adorable opening paragraphs from some hypothetical story. I got this prompt in my first batch: “One character finds the lost toy of the other character’s child.” and since I’ve been watching a lot of Dream Daddy streams lately, of course I had to use Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – The Capybara
Disclaimer: this post contains mild productivity-bragging. If you’re a writer and feeling bad about your level of productivity: don’t! You are doing your best! I am super lucky that right now my health bar is at full and my calendar is empty, which let’s me focus a ton of time on this. I brag on only because my productivity makes Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Personal Record(?)!
Tonight’s flash fiction piece is vaguely inspired by a dream I had the other day, though the tone in this is quite different from the dream: She sat in front of the tank for several hours the day before. The body was awe-inspiring, tall and powerful, silicone skin flawless. The red lips were parted slightly, showing a row of brilliant Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – The New Body
Wow. I am one week back into my blogging and already I am back to my old habit of, at intervals, pretending that it’s Monday on Tuesday. Well, I had a good reason this time because last night when I remembered that it was Monday, I didn’t have much energy left with which to do things, and I was left Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Back to a Time-Honored Tradition (no, 2!)
Yay, first flash fiction post in a while. I had the idea for this scene on a train in Wellington, watching a young conductor interact with some local schoolkids. I’ve got some other related ideas, so this may turn into something longer eventually: “And what are you kids talking about?” he said, playfully feigning a smack upside one boy’s head, Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – The Missing Boy
As the discerning reader will have noticed, my attempts at keeping up my blogging while, as they say, down under, were not very successful. I have now been back “up over”, I suppose, for about a week and I thought it was time I get back into it! I had an absolutely fantastic time on my trip, a once in Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Back… uh, Up Over?
I’m in the upside down! No wait, I mean I’m in Aotearoa New Zealand. Much less scary than the upside down. There are a lot of precocious birds here but I do not consider that scary. I’ve been in hardcore tourist mode for my first week or two of the trip, apart from the first weekend when I was at Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Greetings from Aotearoa
Yes, I know I had basically the same blog post title last week but to be honest there really isn’t much that’s more relevant to my life right now than my upcoming trip to New Zealand. A week from tomorrow, I will be about halfway to my layover in Singapore. I still don’t have much planned for the trip, which Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – One Week till NZ
