NANO FICTION FRIDAY: The War Veteran and the Child

So this is actually a piece from my first residency in grad school, so it’s just shy of four years old at this point. I haven’t edited it at all (save for one word I added in just before posting it, because I’m not sure why it wasn’t there to begin with) and so I figured hey, let’s show off a first draft. I’ve always been pleased with this little short, and I don’t know what else to do with it.

So. In workshop, we were given the prompt: “Two strangers meet and one or both are changed. Use one adult and one child as the only characters.” Beneath the cut is what I came up with. Enjoy!

FICTION FRIDAY! Character Snippet

So hey! Since I’m spending a lot of time bouncing around this month, I figured rather than giving you all a prompt call, I’d just offer a few tiny bits of fiction so you can all meet my characters again. I did this once, long ago, and I can’t remember if this exact piece was ever shared, but I like it too much not to.

This is Alan Dawes, son of one of the wealthiest families in town and as such, probably¬†the most eligible bachelor around. And he knows it. He’s disdainful and self-centered and snobbish…at least at the surface. There’s a lot beneath the surface of Alan, and he doesn’t let many people in to see it. The book he’s from–NOBLESSE OBLIGE–is told from Kenna’s perspective, a maid in his household, so we don’t see much from Alan’s point of view. Which is, of course, why I love to write tiny pieces from his eyes. So enjoy this one! I don’t know that it happens in canon, but I still love 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.
