Flash Fiction Friday – Just Another Monday

Another week, another Seventh Sanctum prompt! First line, as usual: All the demon lords where giggling, but what else was new? They were always giggling. In fact, if Helen didn’t know any better she’d say they always giggled extra on Monday morning when everyone else was sleepy and cranky and unhappy to be there. It would be just like them, she Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Just Another Monday

Flash Fiction Friday – The Eighth Plauge

I was battling a cold last week and ended up having a nearly writing-free week, so there was no Flash Fiction posted. But now I’m back. This week I switched my twitch schedule around so that my writing stream is on Tuesday instead of Thursdays. It works better with my university schedule this term. So, check me out there at 9 Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – The Eighth Plauge

Flash Fiction Friday – Reluctant Emperor

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

Flash Fiction…. Fraturday? – The Death of the Mutant

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

Flash Fiction Friday – How May I Help You?

Yesterday I finally manage to do my writing stream! I think it’s been 2-3 weeks since the last time, but it feels like longer. I have moved my writing stream from Thursday evenings to Thursday mornings because it suits my current schedule better. I did some conlanging, and also wrote the following piece based on a Seventh Sanctum prompt. As I Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – How May I Help You?

Flash Fiction Friday – Dungeons & Flirting

I wrote this last night on my stream, and then almost forgot to post it before going to bed now. I use, once again, the Seventh Sanctum writing prompt generator to generate the first line of this flash piece. As soon as I saw it, I knew what I wanted to write about. Sorry, it’s not as naughty as the Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Dungeons & Flirting

Flash Fiction Friday – Claire The Starship Engineer

I ended up doing my Thursday stream today on Friday instead, because I was just very tired yesterday. On stream, I wrote (well, I began to write) the following piece. It was inspired by the Seventh Sanctum Writing Prompt Generator. The first line is the prompt. I really like this particular generator. It always has interesting stuff for me to Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Claire The Starship Engineer

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

Flash Fiction Friday – Three Dark Gods

Hello lovelies. Hope you all are having a good week. Mine’s been pretty good, but exhausting. My writing goal for this week is only 7 hours, and I was only at about 1 1/2 hours before I started working on this flash fiction piece. And for once, it wasn’t due to procrastination, just evening tiredness. That being said, I have been Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Three Dark Gods

Flash Fiction Friday – Mansplaining

Today, I used Seventh Sanctum‘s writing challenge generator and this line caught my eye: “During the story, a character eats something that disagrees with them.”. I find the ambiguity of the word disagree amusing, and at first I thought of talking cookies, but then, with what’s going on right now in politics, it made me think of this instead: Mansplaining “Well, Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Mansplaining
