Flash Fiction Friday – The Fog

Yesterday evening it was decided that my at-home RPG group, the one where I’m the GM, will begin a campaign of Blades in The Dark (created by the brilliant John Harper) our next session. I’m very excited to be running this system. I’ve been watching a fair few games of it played online and the mechanics seem awesome, and the aesthetics Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – The Fog

Flash Fiction Friday – Objectionable

Odd little piece tonight, inspired by Great Expectations. Without further ado: “You should know,” she said, a haughty look on her proud features as she overlooked the garden. “That I don’t have a heart.” “I know that,” I replied. “But why should I care?” She looked surprised then, the first genuine reaction I’d seen in her all night. She quickly smoothed Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Objectionable

Flash Fiction Friday- Shadow Wolves

For once, my Flash Fiction Friday piece wasn’t written today. Let’s get right to it: “Do not provoke me, little pup!” she spat, opening her fingers wide with a flourish of her wrist. Ana didn’t flinch, stood as tall as ever. They were face to face, just a foot or two apart, and neither would budge. In the corner of my eye Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday- Shadow Wolves

Twice Fortnightly – Last Week on the Job

This week is my last week at my current day job. Today I had the day off, but I’m working Tues-Fri. I’ve got a slew of stuff to finish, but I’m not sure how much time it’ll really take. I’ve never had to “finish up” a job before, for the past 6 years I’ve generally been able to say “oh, Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Last Week on the Job

Flash Fiction Friday – The Other Dimension

I asked Twitter for writing prompts for tonight, and a good Twitter-friend, Signý suggested I write about me and my friends getting sucked into another dimension. So I did. Me and her, more specifically. Here we go: “Uh-oh,” I said when the rift in reality appeared directly adjecent to my coffee table. “That doesn’t look good at all.” The next Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – The Other Dimension

Twice Fortnightly – Computer Woes

Hello lovelies, I hope this Monday is treating you well so far. I’ve had a calm day myself, a bit of volunteering, lunch with a friend and some practicing for my exam tomorrow. The topic is English Syntax, Phonetics & Phonology, and Semantics. All fun topics. It should go okay. I doubt I’ll get an A, but maybe a B and Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Computer Woes

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.
