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
I did a bit better with my time tracking this week! I still relied a bit too heavily on the 4TheWords automatic timer, with all it’s pauses, but toward the weekend I remembered to actually manually track my editing work. Go me! Overall my writing week had a bumpy start but got smoother, and hopefully I can carry on that Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Getting There
I didn’t have time for flash fiction today so here’s a bonus poem instead: Roses are red Violets are cheap I played board games all night and now I need to sleep Good night lovelies!
Last week was a good writing week. Gods, I love those! I want every week to be one of those, to be honest. In spite of that, I only registered 12 writing hours in my tracker which feels like it’s quite a bit lower than the time I actually spent. I think I may have not been taking care with Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – A Good Time, but How Much of it?
The problem with writing my flash fiction pieces during my Thursday morning stream is sometimes I forget to actually post them. I need to take up doing scheduled posts just after stream ends so that I don’t have to make any Fraturday posts. But today, we’ll have one anyway: Once upon a time, a mutant was dying. It moved through Continue reading Flash Fiction…. Fraturday? – The Death of the Mutant
2017 is over. And, like… phew! I feel like that’s all I can say about it when it’s been a bad year for me but so much worse for so much of the world. So instead, let’s talk about 2018! As the regular reader of this blog knows, I like goals. I find them helpful both in visualizing my future, Continue reading Writing Goals for 2018 + First Twice Fortnightly of the Year
I was talking with my boyfriend yesterday about tropes for artificial intelligences in fiction, and thought to myself that it would be interesting to see an AI character that wanted to make the world better for humans rather than being willing to sacrifice humans for the sake of humanity (if that makes sense). This scene didn’t turn out to be quite that, Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – My Name is TAI
Last Adventboost of the year. And it’ll be a short one, because I need to get going back to my parents’ place for Christmas lunch soon. Today I’m boosting: Killer of Enemies by Joseph Bruchac Killer of Enemies is a post-apocalyptic YA novel with a teenage Apache girl as main character. And honestly, that was about all I needed to know Continue reading Adventboost 2017 – Day 24 – Killer of Enemies by Joseph Bruchac
So, as a rule I only boost things I’ve actually read/watched/generally consumed in some way, but I’m making a sort of half-exception today. You’ll see why below. Anyway, today I’m boosting: Serafina’s Flame by J.C. Hart Serafina’s Flame is a fantasy novel about three women who are called by their near-forgotten goddess to save their people. It’s themed around the Continue reading Adventboost 2017 – Day 23 – Serafina’s Flame by J.C. Hart
Last year, I boosted the webseries Compersion! This year I’ve got a recommendation for another black, polyamorous show: 195 Lewis 195 Lewis is a super cool webseries about a group of black, queer, polyamorous women in NYC. I heard about it quite a while back, but it wasn’t out yet them so it’s just been sitting in my bookmarks. As Continue reading Adventboost 2017 – Day 22 – 195 Lewis
