#FlashFictionFriday Sept 1, 2017 – Random Standalone #FlashFic and a **Treasure Hunt**

Today’s Flash Fiction Friday scene uses the 2 words left in the comments of last week’s post: tattoo – edit …and a writing prompt from “Writer’s Write”: Write a short paragraph ending with these words: He would give anything to turn back the clock five minutes. I mildly cheated because although this bit of flash is quite short, it’s not a single paragraph. This is a random stand-alone scene not featuring any …

Flash Fiction Friday – April 7, 2017

This week’s Flash Fiction Friday is a mish-mash using the two prompt words left in last week’s post (whānau and traffic), and the three concepts from P.T. Wyant’s most recent Wednesday’s Words post (a man in odd clothing, a tattered book, and a whistle). For more flash fiction, and bonus scenes from many of my published stories, check out the tabs in the menu at the top of the page. Casey reached back for Hemi’s hand as they crossed the small stream …

Flash Fiction Friday – March 24, 2017

I’m doing something slightly different today. I waited (for the 3rd week in a row) until Thursday afternoon to write the post, but that turned out to be a good thing because I stumbled upon this “daily writing prompt”… …over at the Writers Write blog on Thursday and decided to use it along with the one prompt word (disappointment) that was left on last week’s post. So here you go—10 items …

Flash Fiction Friday – Prompt Word Ficlet – March 17, 2017

This week I’m using 15 random prompt words for my Flash Fiction Friday story scene. I got one word (hamburger) from the comments of last week’s post, and 14 words (screw – conduct – degree – square – print – clever – existence – boot – famous – crack – hungry – hands – ignite – stiff) from a random word generator (screenshot below). This week I wrote another random standalone scene, unrelated to any of my existing publications or returning flash fiction characters. I think it might be my shortest non-drabble to date, coming in at only 244 words: “Screw …

Flash Fiction Friday – Prompt Word Ficlet -March 10, 2017

This week I’m using 15 random prompt words for my Flash Fiction Friday story scene. I got one word (champagne) from the comments of last week’s post, and 14 words (bike – aromatic – bad – limit – hiss – bow – squeeze – train – soap – snow – improve – rainy – pain – grass) from a random word generator (screenshot below). This week I wrote a random standalone scene, unrelated to any of my existing publications or returning flash fiction characters: Darren squeezed through a group of passengers standing near the exit and stepped off the …

15 Random Prompt Words – Flash Fiction Friday – January 6, 2017

For this week’s 15 random words I’m using: 1 word that was left in the comments of last week’s post: transporter 14 words from https://www.randomlists.com/random-words: trick – pat – deep – passenger – valuable – oil – trail – bubble – hideous – stay – silent – existence – huge – flippant Above are screen prints of the words it gave me (I had to get them in 3 batches because otherwise they were …

Flash Fiction Friday 11/11/2016 – Random Prompt Words

I’m going with prompt words (rather than a picture) for my ficlet again this week. Like last week, I went to https://randomwordgenerator.com and asked for fifteen words. To the left is a screen print of the words it gave me, and below is the ficlet I wrote using them. piano – ridge – north – archive – sample – mouse – veteran – precede – misery – theory – mention – tease …

Random Prompt Word Ficlet

I’m doing something different for my Flash Fiction Friday post this week. Instead of an image I’m going with randomly generated prompt words. I’m also not limiting myself to precisely 100 words. Years and years ago when I first started writing, I published a few stories at Torquere Press. Back then we all had LiveJournal accounts, and the TQ authors could sign up to host the Torquere Social Community on …

Flash Fiction Friday #05

Flash Fiction: There isn’t a standard specific definition for this term beyond “short”, but for the purposes of this “Flash Fiction Friday” post it will mean a precisely 100-word story scene written from a photo prompt. I’m recycling again, today. This is a piece I wrote in a GoodReads M/M Group thread back on November 30, 2015. Alas, I am hopelessly behind on my Camp NaNoWriMo WIP, so I’ve got to cut corners …

Flash Fiction Friday #01

Flash Fiction: There isn’t a standard specific definition for this term beyond “short”, but for the purposes of this “Flash Fiction Friday” post it will mean a precisely 100-word story scene written from a photo prompt. I’m going to try to do this every Friday. For my first post, today, I’m kind of cheating. I’m recycling a bit of flash fiction I wrote back in November for a thread in Goodreads’ M/M …
