The Chase (A Flash Fiction Hive Piece)


Good afternoon,

It’s been a good while since I’ve posted a story on this blog. So, it’s about time I change that. Today’s story comes from the Flash Fiction Hive on Twitter. For today’s prompt, I chose a favorite from this month and created a new story from it. I decided on the color prompt (August 4th). Hope you enjoy this one.  Continue reading “The Chase (A Flash Fiction Hive Piece)”

Weekend Coffee Share: Writing Like a Madman

Good afternoon,

Nice to see you all today. Pardon me if I’m a little distracted. I’m at the gym right now and I’m focusing on my steps. As such, I just have water. If you want to jump on the treadmill, by all means join me.

So, if we were walking—running—on the treadmill, I’d talk about school. Continue reading “Weekend Coffee Share: Writing Like a Madman”

Hi there.

Before you read my latest flash fiction piece, I want you to know that I enjoy writing these stories. I feel like I’m getting more out of the Flash Fiction Hive challenges this month. I don’t participate in every challenge, but I’m learning to be more creative and think outside the box.

So, here’s my latest piece. Enjoy.  Continue reading “Mix-Up”

Step by Step

Some things you can’t ignore. Some things you can’t run away from. You have to face them head-on. Racism is one of those things. I’m sure many of you have been following the events of Charlottesville this past weekend. The spewing hatred from those who want to “take back America.” The senseless attack that caused one death and nineteen injuries. The response from various people of interest. (I won’t mention who as I try to stick to the overlying subject.)

I know I’ve touched on this before. Yet somehow, it comes up when events like Charlottesville occur. Continue reading “Step by Step”

Good afternoon,

As one of my goals this month, I want to start posting more stories onto my blog. Fortunately, the Flash Fiction Hive on Twitter (@FlashFicHive) has been a big help to me. Though I haven’t written a lot of stories based on their prompts, they’ve at least provided the fuel for my creativity.

Today, the Hive presented a “Mix and Match” prompt. Here’s the result. I hope you enjoy it.  Continue reading “Unnoticed”

The DeVille’s Belle

Good day.

I’ve been inspired to do some flash fiction writing the past month or so. The big reason is this group I joined on Twitter, the Flash Fiction Hive. This group presents prompts and you can either create a story or post a line or premise of a story. Since I haven’t written any pieces since “The Promise” (based on another Flash Fiction Hive prompt), I thought it was about time I get back on the horse. For today’s prompt, the story is based around a color. I chose the color yellow because I thought it would be a good challenge for me. Anyway, I hope you enjoy my latest piece.  Continue reading “The DeVille’s Belle”

Weekend Coffee Share: Off the Ground Running

Good day, everyone.

I hope everyone had a good week. I’m out of the San Francisco Bay K-cups, but I do have Folgers. As for me, I’m having a Monster. I know it’s not the healthiest thing, but after waking up at 5:30 in the morning to take my sister-in-law to work, I need something. I did have some coffee, but it doesn’t always work for me.

So, this week has been a busy week. Continue reading “Weekend Coffee Share: Off the Ground Running”
