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 an obvious romance ending, so one would imagine you’d figure this out anyway.

FICTION FRIDAY: Thimbleful–Shadow of a Doubt

So my good friend Lyn Thorne-Alder (you’ve seen this name before, I promise) runs a nifty little running blog-thing called Thimbleful Thursday. She posts an idiom (at least usually, I’m not sure if she’s using other things yet or not) and then a projected word count. These are flash fiction levels of words, so I think they range between 100-500 words. I don’t know that I’ll always be able to keep to these, since you all know as well as Lyn does that I’m bad at sticking to short word counts, but I figure since I’m looking for prompts for Fiction Fridays, I’ll go through some of the Thimbleful backlog. This one is from February 2nd, and the prompt is “shadow of a doubt.”

The story is from the world of A RATHER LARGE PUDDLE, and is from–naturally–Jade’s perspective. This takes place somewhere in the middle of the book, when Jade is college hunting and has gone over to England to scout out potential places over there. Maggie is a friend of hers, and our male protagonist’s sister. (He’s also Jade’s love interest. So.)

Fiction Friday: No Plot, No Problem…?

So since Monday’s post focused on pants versus plot, I was a little lost as to what to write for my fiction post today. However, my lovely friend Lyn leapt to the rescue, and offered writing about someone who’s pantsing it, and someone who’s plotting. Given that I only have one extant character who’s ever done NaNo… It’s time for y’all to meet (or possibly re-meet) Gannon Cutel. He’s a friend of Jade’s fromĀ Rather Large Puddle, he’s a figure skater who’s very focused on creative writing, and if he has to say one more time that he’s straight, he’s going to punch something. So let’s let Jade and Gannon chat a bit, hm? This is from Jade’s POV.

I peeked in the library, the last place I could think of that Gan might have tucked himself away in. Sure enough, in the back corner study desk, curled over a notebook, I could just see the shock of dusty blonde hair I knew had to be his.

“Hey you,” I said, leaning on the wall to the desk. He started, dropping his pen, and I laughed. “Sorry, didn’t mean to scare you. Writing a horror?”

“I…no, not quite.” He straightened his glasses. “I’m still working on that part.”
