I hope you’re enjoying the summer weather. (This might be a stretch for some, I imagine.) And I hope everyone is enjoying the time to spend with family or relaxing or whatever it is to help get through the “dog days.” (By the way, does anyone know what that phrase means?)

I meant to share this earlier this week, but got busy.
Anyway, last week, the Flash Fiction Hive brought back a favorite: write a scene or story inspired by a song. This time, I decided to take a song from one of my favorite singers, Vanessa Williams. Continue reading “The Last Time”→

I wanted some sci-fi elements into it, but I couldn’t pull it off. I deleted the prompt from my board, but the idea stuck with me afterwards. So I decided to rework it as a flash fiction piece.
