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!

NANOWRIMO IS COMING: Who Am I This Time?

I’ve used that title for so many things over the years, and I’m never going to get tired of it.

So when people ask me, “Hey Rion, which comes first? The plot or the character?” the answer for me is simple.

There is no story, if there is no one to carry it forward.

Inspiration Wednesday: What to Wear, What to Wear…

I’ve done a lot of talking about how to personally inspire ourselves, and who knows, maybe I’ll come back to that. But right now, I’d like to bring it back to what we’re actually all here to do: write. (I know, gasp! What?! Writing?! Who gave me the authority?!?) And I know I’m a little late on posting this today, but be assured: I’m late because I wanted to write my article on what I was doing.

…Well, kind of. Job hunting isn’t really inspirational, unless you’re looking for inspiration to jump off a bridge. But in any case.
