Flash Fiction: Photographs and Immortality

Last week was the final Flash!Friday competition. *weeps* For my two stories I decided to expand on some of the other worlds I’ve created in my stories written for Flash! Friday. The first story, “Immortālis” takes place in the same world as, “Momento Mori” (which is why I chose this specific title). Here’s “Immortālis” and,Continue reading “Flash Fiction: Photographs and Immortality”

Flash Fiction Double Feature – Dragons!

For last week’s Flash! Friday, you had to include a dragon, and I ended up doing a part 2 of another flash piece I’d written for Flash! Friday a few months ago, titled “After the Sea Monsters”. It’s technically set in the same world as my NaNoWriMo work for this year, though quite a fewContinue reading “Flash Fiction Double Feature – Dragons!”

Flash Fiction: Homecoming & Echoes of Life

Homecoming I came back from the sea when the moon was full. The houses were so close to the beach that the sand and broken shells were trampled into the narrow streets.

NaNoWriMo and Writing Update

I can’t believe NaNoWriMo’s end is just a few days away. I think that I will still be doing a last stint on Sunday (and I am not missing the fun of the last write-in!) to get the whole story down before midnight on 30 November. And then the editing will start. Lots and lots of editing.

Some sobbed openly. The Pilgrim stumbled along and reached the last hill. With him pilgrims from other towns andContinue reading “Flash Fiction: The Last Relic”

NaNoWriMo Update Day 6, Flash Fiction & NaNoWriMo Music

The first week of NaNoWriMo is almost over and I am on 18 232 words as of this morning. I’ve been writing a bit before work and hope to get into a strict writing routine again – meaning that I write every day at least once a day. Even if it’s during lunchtime. The NaNoWriMoContinue reading “NaNoWriMo Update Day 6, Flash Fiction & NaNoWriMo Music”

Flash Fiction: The Nightmare

Glass tubes filled with green fluid wound their way over the workbench like branches of ivy. Here and there beakers stood above blue flames, their contents boiling. At another table the creator stood crouched above his humanoid creation with a wooden face carved in the likeness of a child. Metal and brass gears glinted inContinue reading “Flash Fiction: The Nightmare”
