Title: None Word Count: 1,001 Total Time: 1.5 hours Genre: Horror Comments: I don’t hate this one. It’s a pretty complete piece. I need to flesh out a bit of narrative in the middle, but it doesn’t have the huge gaps that are in my stories from the first two days.

The student chucked the textbook across the room and went to theContinue reading “Another flash fiction challenge”
I’m looking forward to doing Story-A-Day again this year (and hopefully, not getting so far behind 3/4 of the way through that I almost give up). I already have more than enough prompts to get me through the month, too. I currently have 43 ideas, titles, or other inspirational notes to keep me going. SoContinue reading “One Week Until Story-A-Day!”
I’m a big fan of Chuck Wendig, and I’m also a fan of flash fiction. Thus, when Chuck Wendig issues a flash fiction challenge, I heed the call. Well, sometimes.
