Flash Fiction Friday – Slice of Pandemic Life

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

Flash Fiction Friday – Loneliness and Hatches

I feel like I haven’t written flash fic in about three years. But I’m back! Wooh! Today’s piece is a bit macabre, and inspired by the creepy basement under my parents’ summer home that a small part of my brain is always worried about falling into. Loneliness and Hatches They all said that it was loneliness and isolation that killed Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Loneliness and Hatches

Flash Fiction Friday – Death Words

Today’s flash fic piece was based on a prompt from Seventh Sanctum! And yes, the title is a bad D&D pun. Death Words She was absolutely positive he would be speaking, and we all knew what that meant. A few years ago, we might have debated the issue, might’ve doubted what she said but by now everybody knew that Aunt Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Death Words

Flash Fiction Friday – The Ground Where She Used To Walk

I don’t know quite where this one came from, it just did. Enjoy! The Ground Where She Used To Walk “So…” I say as we step further into the orchard, where the branches of the apple trees are bent low with fruit not quite yet ready for picking. “When are you going to tell Grandmother?” Lia doesn’t answer me right Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – The Ground Where She Used To Walk

Flash Fiction Friday – Wall-runner

I’ve been reading through my next big WIP this week, and gods am I excited to be working on it. It’s gonna be so good! Eventually… In the mean time, here’s a little snippet of an unnamed side-character. She might not even turn up in the book, to be honest. I mostly wanted to explore this particular part of the Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Wall-runner

Flash Fiction Friday – Good Morning, Gary

For Thank Gods Its Indie this afternoon, I played a lovely little game called Speed Dating for Ghosts by Copychaser games and Laundry Bear. It was really enjoyable and unique, and thematically it reminded me a bit of Corinne Cross’s Dead & Breakfast which I played a while ago, even if Speed Dating has maybe a bit of a darker Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Good Morning, Gary

Flash Fiction Friday – Souvenirs

Another Friday, another snippet based on a dream. The title makes little sense, to be honest, but I didn’t know what else to name it. Enjoy! Souvenirs “Auntie!” I catch them as they’re leaving the house, a whole clutch of young cousins and second cousins rotating around my aunt Pam and her friend Mary from next door who won’t let Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Souvenirs

Flash Fiction Friday – Tropes in the snow

Sometimes I just feel like having a poke at some D&D tropes, so here we are: Tropes in the snow “Bard!” the barbarian roared as the opening bars of the same song rang out from the lute for the fifth time that day. “You play that song one more time and I will smash your face into my ax.” The Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Tropes in the snow

Flash Fiction Friday – Chibi Cow

I don’t know y’all. It’s a cow. It’s cute. That’s all I’ve got. Chibi Cow The cow, as it turned out, was the least of Lacey’s problems. When she’d come home from work that Tuesday and found it on her front steps, she’d been rather stressed about it, but as the days slunk past the stress of suddenly having a Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Chibi Cow

Flash Fiction Friday – The Return

The last two Sundays, I’ve spent my Solo Storytelling Sunday stream playing a wonderful map-making rpg called Lost in the Grey (by Mnemonic). I’ve had a ton of fun with it, and I have gotten quite fond of the story I’ve created through it – to the point where I might turn it into a book eventually. The story isn’t Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – The Return
