#FlashFictionFriday August 25, 2017 – Adventures with Harrison and Mason

Today’s Flash Fiction Friday scene uses the 3 words left in the comments of last week’s post (kiss – family – reunion). I used the words to add to my Adventures with Harrison and Mason collection. It’s more than a drabble, but still short (although quite revealing of something that had been hinted at back in the “month of drabbles” (May 19 using “calibre” and “cocktail.”)): ~ ~ ~ Told from Harrison’s …

Summary of May, 2017 Prompts – Adventures with Harrison and Mason #FlashFic

I came across this list of writing prompts for May, 2017 on the Writer’s Write page and thought I’d give it a whirl.

I’m going with a drabble this week—a precisely 100-word scene. It’ll be based on the image below, as well as use the word I got in the comments from last week’s post: cookie.

Wednesday Words – Jan. 18, 2017 – Adventures with Harrison and Mason

P.T. Wyant posts a weekly prompt for writers, and followers of the blog are encouraged to write a bit of flash fiction (approx. 500 words) using those words/ideas.
