Flash Fiction: Tribute to the Wild Desert

This week’s flash fiction challenge involved rolling 2d20 to pick a story-meets-story pair.

So: Dune meets Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

Flash Fiction: Colcannon and Curry

Another Cracked Pots short; I should come up with a better name for that ‘verse since apparently I’m writing a sequel. This one is spoilery so people who are in the midst of the draft should not read it. (I am peering at you, yes, you know who you are.)

This challenge was “To Write […]

Flash Fiction: Mist and Light

In honor of the fact that I put Cracked Pots through PitMad yesterday, a Cracked Pots short, set after the end of the book. I have attempted to minimize spoilery content, not that that matters a huge amount. For the A Random Scattering Of Fresh Titles challenge.

So, I give you: “Calendar of Fortunate Days”, behind […]
