Flash Fiction Friday – The Other Dimension

I asked Twitter for writing prompts for tonight, and a good Twitter-friend, Signý suggested I write about me and my friends getting sucked into another dimension. So I did. Me and her, more specifically. Here we go: “Uh-oh,” I said when the rift in reality appeared directly adjecent to my coffee table. “That doesn’t look good at all.” The next Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – The Other Dimension

Twice Fortnightly – No P-o-D, but lots of creative energy!

That’s right, folks, I still haven’t looked into the Print-on-Demand thing. I should probably stop saying I will, and just let ya’ll be pleasantly surprised when I actually do it. So, what have I done this week? Well, this: Not a very productive week, as you can see. I had this freelance project I was working on, which was a lot more Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – No P-o-D, but lots of creative energy!

Tribe News: 2 New Releases and 1 Upcoming

One of the things that I love most about being a writer and, I think, one of the driving factors behind how far I’ve come in the past year, is the wonderful “writer tribe” I’ve found myself a part of through the magic of the interwebs. Having “colleagues” who can share advice and experience, offer encouragement and understand your struggles Continue reading Tribe News: 2 New Releases and 1 Upcoming

Twice Fortnightly – Back in the saddle!

Somehow it became Tuesday again. Whoops! I guess you lose track of the days when you’re busy. This week I have: Done my daily writing, mostly anyway.

I Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Back in the saddle!

A Single Word – ThinkKit Prompt #30

A Dash of Thanks – ThinkKit Prompt #25

I was planning to make this a double post,  ThinkKit prompt #24 and #25. #25 was to share a photo of a tradition from the past year.

Yesterday’s ThinkKit prompt was skipped because I was at a wedding and got home late, but today’s is to write about something that surprised you this year (hence the somewhat suggestive title).

Sister, Soulmate, Star

When I was in primary school, there was a girl who I greatly admired. She was wonderful: pretty, sweet, funny, she could sing and draw just like from a Disney movie and she had all the coolest toys! I wanted to play with her all the time. Maybe even a bit more often than that. We drifted apart for a few years Continue reading Sister, Soulmate, Star
