FICTION FRIDAY: Thimbleful Thursday – Ugly Duckling

I'm not sure where I wanted to go with this, and I don't know where in any established time line this might take place, but it's Celita and Tarenthal from QUEST TO KARANTIRI, sometime in her first visit to the elven woods. As usual, prompt is taken from Lyn Thorne-Alder's Thimbleful Thursday, and I love … Continue reading FICTION FRIDAY: Thimbleful Thursday – Ugly Duckling

FICTION FRIDAY: Thimbleful – Runs in the Family

This one is over word count. I had a good cut-off point and my characters viscerally rebelled against me. I don't like cutting them off if I don't have to. As always, this is pulled from Lyn Thorne-Alder's Thimbleful Thursday prompts. My prompt takes place in the world of Karantiri, but it's from a similar … Continue reading FICTION FRIDAY: Thimbleful – Runs in the Family

FICTION FRIDAY: Thimbleful – Nest Egg

Another lovely Thimbleful Thursday prompt. I went over word count again, because I'm bad at flash fiction. >.> Only by like...120 though? That's better than usual? Anywho, this is in the world of RATHER LARGE PUDDLE, set post-book. I'd say there are spoilers, but I've been talking about this book for so long and it's … Continue reading FICTION FRIDAY: Thimbleful – Nest Egg

FICTION FRIDAY: Thimbleful – May/December

Not sure why this was as hard as it was, but here we are. Thimbleful Thursday prompt was May/December. I have no clue who these characters are, but they're adorable. I'd noticed him sitting there, night after night, always with a double of bourbon, neat, that he'd nurse for hours. Always polite, always tipped well...and … Continue reading FICTION FRIDAY: Thimbleful – May/December

FICTION FRIDAY: Thimbleful – Have a Blast/Rose Colored Glasses

These two were short (200 and 300) prompts, so I figured I'd mush them together! Again, these are taken from the Thimbleful Thursday page, run by my dear friend and beloved author Lyn Thorne-Alder, who I heartily recommend you check out. (Both her stuff, and of course the TTH page. Because it's fun! And good. … Continue reading FICTION FRIDAY: Thimbleful – Have a Blast/Rose Colored Glasses

Read My Book, Please

Any time I get a chance to speak to a published author, whether they be traditionally published or not, I always have a tendency to ask the same question. I ask because I still haven't really gotten a good answer, and it's an important one to me. Particularly since it's likely that I'm going to … Continue reading Read My Book, Please

FICTION FRIDAY: Origin Story

I've been toying with this idea for a little while, essentially since someone from my past had a whole faux conversation with me about how this might happen and why. I don't remember most (if really any) of our original conversation, and unlike most other correspondence with my friends, this actually happened aloud, so it's … Continue reading FICTION FRIDAY: Origin Story
