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
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
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
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
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 … Continue reading Fiction Friday: Hide and Seek
So in deciding to write these to prompts I found, I'm rapidly realizing that I don't have nearly the amount of prompts I thought I did...and the ones I do have aren't as good as I remember. This is irksome, and I'm going to be on a quest to fix it. BUT! For now, I've … Continue reading FICTION FRIDAY: Just One Look
I love fiction prompts. I don't work with them nearly enough, but some of my favorite things have come out of prompts I had in workshops. And since I've been struggling to figure out what to share here on Fridays, I figured hey! I've got some books with prompts in them. Why not pick some … Continue reading FICTION FRIDAY: Prompt – Invasion
So I'm still in flashback mode for now, but since it's Friday the 13th, I had to share this particular piece with you. I'm not one to write a lot of horror, though I'd love to try some day, and this is likely the closest I've gotten. But I still like this, and I wish … Continue reading FICTION FRIDAY: Next Door Neighbor
I've used that title for so many things over the years, and I'm never going to get tired of it. The origin is a Kurt Vonnegut story by the same name, about a man with little personality of his own but when he's given a part in a play, he becomes utterly immersed into the … Continue reading NANOWRIMO IS COMING: Who Am I This Time?
I've decided to move my old inspiration newsletter to a blog post instead, thus consolidating and making for a better archive. The standard format will change a bit, however, now that it's on the blog. Since Thursdays are usually set aside for writing help and tips of the trade, as it were, I'm not going … Continue reading Inspiration Wednesdays: Dance Break!
