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 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 … Continue reading FICTION FRIDAY: Thimbleful Thursday – Labor of Love

FICTION FRIDAY: Thimbleful – Keep at Arm’s Length/Just For the Record

These two went together too well, so I had to put them together. (Sorry Lyn, I'm bending your rules!) One had a 100 word limit and the other 200, so my goal is to stay within 10% of 300 words. Here goes! This is in the world of OFF THE RECORD, probably pretty late in … Continue reading FICTION FRIDAY: Thimbleful – Keep at Arm’s Length/Just For the Record

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

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, … Continue reading FICTION FRIDAY: Thimbleful – Daylight Robbery

FICTION FRIDAY: Thimbleful-Iron Out the Difficulty

Another Thimbleful Thursday post for you! This was meant to be between 450-550 words, and it's just over (sorry, Lyn) but it just grabbed me and wouldn't let go. This is a very very very far sequel-ish to QUEST TO KARANTIRI. We've met Kelina, the princess of the Metadrine elves before. The young man she's … Continue reading FICTION FRIDAY: Thimbleful-Iron Out the Difficulty

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 … Continue reading FICTION FRIDAY: Thimbleful–Shadow of a Doubt
