Flash Fiction Friday – Sandalwood

Today’s piece is very tiny. Hope you like it. Sandalwood As the world started swirling around me, all I could think was that the demon princess had an amazing fashion sense.

This snippet is me dipping my toes into a new idea of mine – a Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – A Change of Seasons

Flash Fiction Friday – The Vessel

I was temping today and while the kids in my pre-lunch session were working independently I had a sudden flash of inspiration and wrote the following: She was in the middle of instructing a group of eight graders on what would be part of their test on demographics the following week when she heard that familiar voice in her head.

Flash Fiction Friday – The Missing Boy

Yay, first flash fiction post in a while. I had the idea for this scene on a train in Wellington, watching a young conductor interact with some local schoolkids. I’ve got some other related ideas, so this may turn into something longer eventually: “And what are you kids talking about?” he said, playfully feigning a smack upside one boy’s head, Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – The Missing Boy
