AdventBoost 2019 – 6 Etsy Shops

It’s December! The month where I go ham with various forms of advent calendars. This year I have a tea swap calendar, a Body Shop calendar and the usual gift calendar with my parents. I’m also doing a sort of video calendar on YouTube called vlogmas (check my YouTube channel out here) and, because I can’t resist, I’m doing AdventBoost, Continue reading AdventBoost 2019 – 6 Etsy Shops

Flash Fiction Friday – When?

Tonight’s flash fiction is based on what might be the worst night of my life. In real life, though, the “the texts were from him all along!”-twist was only a dream, and my friend came back the next morning, all smiles. Hope you enjoy this darker reality: When? I knew all along that it was a bad idea. Zoe off Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – When?

Flash Fiction Friday – Dreams and Rebels

Oh hey, it’s a flash fiction Friday post! It’s been a while, or at least it feels like it. This piece is inspired by my partner sleep-talking, and me being in a mood for the (perhaps) unexpected. Hope you enjoy! Dreams and Rebels “How’sa rebellion?” Jac and I shot each other a look over Cal’s snoozing, sleep-talking form. He mumbled Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Dreams and Rebels

Flash Fiction Friday – Skoskav

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

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

Worldbuilding Wednesday – When Dots Connect

I ended up not posting a Worldbuilding Wednesday last week, as some of you may have noticed. I probably had a good reason at the time, but to be honest I genuinely can’t remember what it was. Oh well! In the end, skipping a post turned out to be a good choice because my worldbuilding stream last Sunday ended up Continue reading Worldbuilding Wednesday – When Dots Connect

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

Worldbuilding Wednesday – Too Much, Too Soon

Reader, I abandoned the challenge.  But honestly, that’s okay. It was a little too much a little too soon, and since it was a spontaneous decision to join and not part of my original plan for the month, I’m not kicking myself about it. I lasted about 5 days before dropping out. It wasn’t actually the writing itself that was Continue reading Worldbuilding Wednesday – Too Much, Too Soon

Flash Fiction Friday – Report on the Demise of the Smelters

As I mentioned in my newest Worldbuilding Wednesday post (they’re back, yay), I’m currently doing a worldbuilding challenge arranged by World Anvil. For Thursday’s entry (though I didn’t write it until today), I wrote a small article called False Children, about a sort of monster in one of my worlds. Afterward the piece below popped into my head, so I Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Report on the Demise of the Smelters
