Flash Fiction Friday – Broken Sky

I’m doing a thing this month on Mastodon I’m calling AdventPrompt, where every day I post a writing prompt (inspired, directly or indirectly, by my tea advent calendar). I am planning to keep most of the prompts for a rainy day, but this one caught me and as it is Friday I turned it into flash fic. Enjoy! Broken Sky Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Broken Sky

Flash Fiction… Funday? – Felled

So many effs. I wrote this yesterday (also not a Friday, hah), but forgot to post it. It’s set in the same world as one of my WIPs but not actually related to the story. Hope you enjoy it! Felled As soon as the bolt left the bow, Elker knew it would find its mark. It buried itself deep in Continue reading Flash Fiction… Funday? – Felled

Flash Fiction Friday – That’s No Elf!

We’ve been watching The Rings of Power so here’s a little elfy snippet. Hope you enjoy! That’s No Elf! The thing about Elves is that they’ve always frightened me a little. Not the way that wolves and their slavering jaws frighten me, or the way that lightning does. No, the way that the waters that fall from the Cliffs of Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – That’s No Elf!

Flash Fiction Friday – Later

Seems like all my flash fic pieces are based on dreams lately. Well, this one isn’t so much based on a dream, as vaguely derived from one. Hope you like it! Later Her hand tightens around her staff and she quietly gets to her feet, drawing herself up to her full height in the shadow of the trees. The campfire Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Later

Flash Fiction Friday – Claw Marks

Flash fic! Yay! I feel like I’ve written something very similar to this before, but I haven’t had time to dig into my archives to find out so I’m really not sure. Hope you like it! Claw Marks She looks at herself in the mirror, and finds three marks, the palest of pink, drawing a soft curve from her hairline Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Claw Marks

Flash Fiction Funday – Foster-mother of Dragons

Normally when I’m late with my flash fiction, I end up posting it on the Saturday. This week though, instead of a Fraturday, we’re having a Funday! This piece is inspired by playing this solo rpg. It’s a sort of prologue to my game, written just before I started. Hope you enjoy! Foster-mother of Dragons No sooner had Gertrude decided Continue reading Flash Fiction Funday – Foster-mother of Dragons

Flash Fiction Friday – Running Wild

I’ve been thinking a lot about an idea I have, and my brain decided to keep working on it when I slept. This little snippet is the result. Hope you enjoy it! Running Wild “We’re going to try to be out for a week,” the young man says as he hands his backpack to Sanna and turns to help his Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Running Wild

Flash Fiction Friday – Runaway, Swept Away

My parents recently got an electric car, and I’m fascinated by how it doesn’t vroom as it approaches, it just sort of… sings. Like a space ship. So I wrote this. Runaway, Swept Away The street is quiet, the apartment blocks tall and dark and brooding. Haley shifts her weight from foot to foot, peering down toward the bend around Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Runaway, Swept Away

Flash Fiction Fr-aturday – Thrift Store Portal

It’s been a while since I posted flash fiction, huh? I actually had this idea yesterday after an interesting thrift store experience, but I was too tired to write it until today. I just love putting portals in strange places. Hope you enjoye! Thrift Store Portal Julie inhaled deeply and rolled her shoulders, shifting the plastic bag from one hand Continue reading Flash Fiction Fr-aturday – Thrift Store Portal

Flash Fiction Fr-aturday – The Next Time

Wow, it’s been so long since I posted a flash fiction piece last. It isn’t even Friday but hey… I’m back! Hope you enjoy it. The Next Time I understand now. I always wondered, as a child, why people used to see fairies dancing across the misty fields and I never got to see any. But now I know. It Continue reading Flash Fiction Fr-aturday – The Next Time
