Excuse the blithe title, I couldn’t think of what else to call it. Just a little snippet, plucked right out of my day. Maybe not a story as such but oh well. Enjoy! Slice of Pandemic Life “Whole family went in,” the man in front of me says, nodding toward the tent. He holds his palm up to me. “Five Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Slice of Pandemic Life
A little lesbian meet-cute for you this Friday! Inspired by my own feet today, though I sadly did not get a meet-cute. The title is a Swedish word meaning “shoe chafing”. Enjoy! Skoskav “Must be a good book.” Liliana started and looked up. One of the baristas was peering curiously at her, a bucket of dirty dishes on her hip. Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Skoskav
Just a wee thing for you tonight… The Perfect Cabin I walk down the path, peering past the trees as I go. I search for dark brown logs, doors and window-frames painted blue, like the description said. There are so many cabins here, huddled among the pines. Small, simple ones without a lick of paint, candy-colored fairytale ones covered in Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – The Perfect Cabin
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
Why are these weeks so weird? I keep realizing it’s Sunday or Monday and I’ve simultaneously done a bunch things but also not all the things I wanted to but also that I have no idea how many hours I have been writing this week. I have NOT been keeping track! I have also not read through my upcoming Patreon Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – What is Even Happening?
You know, typing this blog post title has made be realize that the word dial is not spelled the way I expected it. The i-a sequence really doesn’t seem to jibe with the pronunciation. Aaaanyway, that is not what I am here to write about today. Not at all! It’s Monday, and on Mondays I sit down to tell you Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Dialing it Back a Bit
Evenin’ guys! Check me out, I remembered to post this on Friday this week. Tonight, I went to the house warming party of my next door neighbor, who happen to have moved into the apartment of the parents of someone I was best friends with basically up until I hit my teens. So since I couldn’t think of anything else Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Different, Familiar
Woah, you guys, a fortnight without twice fortnightly? How did that happen? I really thought it was just one week. Life is a little coo-coo banana pants right now, but in mostly good ways. Just so, so busy! Still, I’m trucking along. What have I been up to, writing-wise? Well, I posted some backstory for a D&D character for Flash Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Back in Action!
So apparently I forgot all about my blog last week. Oops! It was a weird week. A surprise cold, and the realization I would have to miss my BA thesis deadline if I wanted to produce something I was at all happy with made it a weird week. I still have a cold, though it’s almost gone, and I’ve been Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Back to Work!
The last few days I have, much to my enjoyment, actually been checking things off of to-do lists. That’s always a lovely feeling. I’ve caught some sort of second wind with this university thing I’m working on and although it’s still slow-going, it’s at least going and with a bit more enthusiasm than before. Writing wise, it’s also been a Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Checkmarks!
