Worldbuilding Wednesday – My Fundamental Questions

Since I didn’t do my worldbuilding stream Sunday, I don’t have any fun tidbits of progress to share with you today. Instead, I want to talk a little about one of the hardest things about worldbuilding (especially if you’re new): where to start? There are a lot of different advice on this out there, and the advice I’m about to Continue reading Worldbuilding Wednesday – My Fundamental Questions

Flash Fiction Friday – The Chosen One

I’m reading a YA fantasy series right now and it has me thinking about Chosen Ones. Not my favorite trope all told, though not my least favorite either. Recently it occurred to me how rarely the Chosen One in a book knows they’re special, how usually they dismiss the strange things that happen to them and someone else has to Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – The Chosen One

Flash Fiction Fraturday – Aquamarine

I wasn’t going to catch up on Flash Fiction Friday after I missed it yesterday, but then I had a tiny, very silly idea. Here you go: Aquamarine Steph awoke, and for a moment she wasn’t sure why she felt so amused. As the dream came back to her, she chuckled softly and rubbed her face. Ridiculous… She reached for Continue reading Flash Fiction Fraturday – Aquamarine

Flash Fiction Friday – The Tiniest Friend

It’s Friiiiday! Look at me actually posting flash fiction! I was doing some window shopping on Etsy earlier today and found this shop full of adorable little fantasy figurines! So cute! They sort of combined with the Tea Dragon Society in my head and created this little piece. Hope you like it! The Tiniest Friend Ellie smiled as she walked Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – The Tiniest Friend

Flash Fiction Friday – The Portal

About time I got back to these posts! This one is inspired by a perpetually out of order stall in a bathroom at a nearby mall. I gotta admit, now that I’ve written this I kinda wanna turn it into a longer story… Hope you like it! The Portal “What the fuck??”Tina blinked slowly at the absurd sight that stretched Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – The Portal

Flash Fiction Friday – A Change of Seasons

It feels like I haven’t written flash fiction, or anything really, in ages. But I’m finally over this cold I’ve had enough that I could sit down and finish the flash fic piece I started last week – and I am very happy about it! This snippet is me dipping my toes into a new idea of mine – a Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – A Change of Seasons

Flash Fiction Friday – The First Willow

I asked for a flash fiction prompt on Twitter today and my friend Sophia was kind enough to provide one. The prompt was to write a creation story including a willow tree, an ocean and shooting stars. Here’s my attempt: Long before the world was as it is now, there was only ocean and the sky above it. There was Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – The First Willow

Flash Fiction Friday – Breaking Camp

I’ve had orcs on the brain lately. I’ve been seeing so many lovely interpretations of them on Pinterest the last few weeks that I’ve started toying with the idea of writing a book set in an orcish society. To toy a little with the concept, I wrote the following: Breaking Camp “Track-makers!” Chieftain’s voice rang out over the encampment. “We Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Breaking Camp

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 – Out of the Oven

It’s Friday! Today’s flash fiction piece may or may not be based on real events (on that note, you should check out my friend’s Twitch channel: twitch.tv/geminick_). Here we go: Ding! “Oh, they’re ready! I’m so excited!” the witch said, clapping her hands together as she stood up from the kitchen table. “I wonder how they turned out! Come on, Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Out of the Oven
