Flash Fiction Friday – A Journey


I struggled with this a bit. It’s 1030 words and took me 90 minutes. I think I could probably trim it in editing to be under a thousand words. Prompt – For this week, write about a journey. And for bonus points, make it by train.   The winter wind cut whipped my hair around […]

RoW80 – Week 3, Sunday Check In


My writing this week went well except for Friday. I think part of that was being up and running all week and just crashing on Friday. I just didn’t feel like writing and that showed in how little I managed to write in the 25 minutes I forced myself to sit in front of the […]

Flash Fiction Friday 1/11/2019


The Flash Fiction Friday prompt this week offered 6 locations and 6 things in a little table. I rolled 2d6 and came up with either a dark lake and a folded sheet of paper or a quiet suburb and onion rings. I probably should have designated which d6 was location and which was the thing […]
