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
A silly little piece based on a dream I had last night. I’m not sure it was actually a cute dress, but I sure thoughts so in the dream! Anyway, enjoy! Weresnakes and Pinefores “Oh hey, there’s that dress we were looking at the other day.” Belinda stopped, catching Rim by the arm to stop her too, and pointing at Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Weresnakes and Pinefores
It’s not terribly uncommon for me to write flash fic based on my own dreams but today I’m coming at you with a twist – flash fic based on my spouse’s dream. A silly piece that I hope you enjoy! Is this your wormling? Amir was enjoying his entree and the fact that all of the people sitting near him Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Is this your wormling?
I was poking about my Scrivener files last night and found a little thing, just two sentences, that I wrote back in 2015. I think I got the idea from a dream, and it’s just been sitting there since. I guess it just spoke to me somehow, so here it is in a little more detail: Falling, Flying The wind Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Falling, Flying
I feel like I say this every time I post these days but: wow, it’s been a while, huh? Anyway, here is a slightly macabre little piece, inspired by something I dreamed this morning. I hope you enjoy it! Judgement Alena saw a figure moving through the dark. They had all stepped into the Hall and sat down on the Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Judgement
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?
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
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
Have you ever had one of those dreams where things seem rather normal but then suddenly there’s one detail that just doesn’t make sense, a little thing that makes you go “this isn’t really happening, is it?”. Last night I dreamed we had a dog. Great dream, great dog. Except after a while dream-me remarked to dream-spouse “huh, that’s odd. Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Magpie Clones
It’s been such a long time since I posted something for flash fiction Friday! But tonight, since I’ve realized my Camp NaNo project, which I thought was a 10-15k short, has ballooned into a 25k+ novella which I therefore won’t be able to actually finish by the end of the month, I decided to take some time for flash fiction Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – The Jailbreak
