FICTION FRIDAY: Thimbleful Thursday – Labor of Love

Sooooooo this one is a solid like…100 words over where the TTH prompt wanted me but I GOT CARRIED AWAY I’M SORRY. I’m still really pleased with this, though, and it’s started to give me some ideas for a book I’ve been wanting to write for years now. I’ll let you be the judge of who these characters are.

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. Yes.) So prompt #1 is…a new world, I guess. No clue; it’s not an established setting. And prompt #2 is from NOBLESSE OBLIGE’s world. Enjoy!

FICTION FRIDAY: Thimbleful – Daylight Robbery

Literally had never heard the turn of phrase that way, but a quick Wiki search tells me it’s another form of “highway robbery”! Neato.

So today I’m delving back into one of my few published worlds, because I miss these characters and they deserve more page time. Soren Avalon, digital supervillain, and his significant other, Officer Jake Harker. (Yes, Jake knows Soren’s a bad guy. It’s…complicated.) A little longer than it should have been. Raise your hand if you’re surprised.

Fiction Friday: Hide and Seek

I’ve been scouring the Internet for interesting prompts, and this one called out to me for some reason. I’ve been bouncing around with some ideas for it, but I’m still not sure it’s going to evolve past what I have here. I hope it does; I’ve had fun with it! But I’m just not quite sure yet.

Anyway, the prompt for this one was: “They were playing hide and seek when he disappeared. She spent the rest of her life looking for him.”

As always, I welcome your own snippets of fiction in the comments! Let me see what you come up with!

Ideal Writing Space

I came across a writing exercise in my hunt for Fiction Friday ideas, and found one in a book I have (and I have no memory of where I picked it up) but it struck me as interesting. It asked us, as writers, to imagine what our ideal writing space would be–and then to write it out. Describe the room.

I thought, “ooh! This sounds like fun! I could totally do this!” I made a note of it and decided to come back to it.

…well, I’m back to it now. …and I don’t know that I have an answer.

Prompt Call July 2016 – “Independence”

Hey everyone! So since I got a pretty nifty suggestion from one of my regulars, I figured I’d give a prompt call a shot again. This month’s theme, in honor of stuff like Brexit and Independence Day, shall be “independence.”

What does that mean? Anything you’d like! Give me an idea for a short that has to do with the theme, and I’ll write you ~200 words about it.

Followup Friday

Yeah, I’m good with these titles today.

So I only got one response to my blog last week, who said they were in favor of seeing Hunter’s escapades as long as I wasn’t entirely burning myself out.

They Say to Write What You Know

I’m generally of the mind to take the phrase “write what you know” with a grain of salt. I’m a fantasy writer, even if the “fantasy” means the daydreams of a high school kid. But with several of my jobs, I’ve spent more than a few days saying “oh god, if I wrote a book about what happens here…”

As you may have noticed, I’ve started doing this with the café I work with.
