#FiveSentenceFiction 02/16/12

  Lillie’s inspiration this week: exquisite At first, I only saw that she seemed older. She frowned as I studied the silver mixed into the shining honey gold of her hair, the lines at the corners of her eyes and mouth that seemed more pronounced than I remembered. They added depth to her character, wisdomRead more

#FiveSentenceFiction 01/26/12

  Five sentences toward a certain WIP, based around the prompt clandestine. Oh, how I love that word. Brings to mind all sorts of covert and nefarious goings on. I woke to find two women I recognized standing nearby, heads bowed together in conversation. I cleared my throat and my head threatened to roll off my shoulders—holyRead more

#FiveSentenceFiction 01/21/12

  Working with the word radiance… five sentences going toward some Gaea’s Chosen action: The rising sun’s dim radiance barely penetrated the morning fog, a pale, reddish globe shrouded in cottony white and gray. “I suppose I should be grateful the low visibility will make us harder to spot,” I sighed, not relishing the ideaRead more

Gaea’s Chosen: Event Horizon – Six Sentence Sunday 01/15/11

  Another week gone, another week closer to wrapping Event Horizon. I’ve had time to sneak in some work on a Gaea’s Chosen ancestor story (part of a project with Siobhan Muir) which has been a lot of fun and gotten me really pumped to work on the rest of the GC series. Event Horizon isRead more

Gaea’s Chosen: Event Horizon – Six Sentence Sunday 01/08/11

The first week of #WIP500 is done, and WOW. Almost half a million words written in 7 days, and I even get to lay claim to almost 4K. Since Gaea’s Chosen: Event Horizon is really starting to take shape, I thought I would jump back to this story, and a reunion… “Gemma?” Her name worked itsRead more

Gaea’s Chosen: Event Horizon – Six Sentence Sunday 12/18/11

  This week I wrote a ton of flash fiction, added about 1K to Event Horizon, and set up my New Year’s writing project, #WIP500. Not too shabby, eh? Continuing from last week’s Event Horizon 6, here’s a new batch from the work in progress, featuring someone everybody thinks is dead. And once people thinkRead more

The #WeekInFlashFiction 12/11/11-12/17/11

A prolific week for flash scribblings. Check out my six tales, including a couple that worked nicely into Color Blind and Gaea’s Chosen: Event Horizon.   #MenageMonday – Week 13 The Photo: The Phrase: ducks in a row The Judge’s Prompt: the story must contain a were-moose The story: Deep in my blood, I could feel theRead more

The #WeekInFlashFiction 12/04/11-12/10/11

  I’ve started working on Gaea’s Chosen: Event Horizon, the follow up to Gaea’s Chosen: The Mayday Directive. That influenced my flash contributions this week (all two of them), so these are potential snippets from the work in progress.   #MotivationMonday – Week 7 The photo: The starting prompt: “I’m not sure how to tell youRead more

Heart Still Beating – Six Sentence Sunday #6

  Gaea’s Chosen: The Mayday Directive is live on Smashwords and Amazon and I couldn’t be more excited. If you followed the five weeks’ of excerpts, I hope you’ll check out the full tale and let me know what you think. The next Gaea’s Chosen tale is in the development stage, but before I get toRead more

Gaea’s Chosen: The Mayday Directive – Saturday Snark #3

  It’s that time of the week again! This is the last weekend before Gaea’s Chosen: The Mayday Directive hits the interwebs, so I’ll offer one last bit of snark from my stranded band of space explorers: “This is the best I can do until we get out there.” “Quit being such an ass, Marc,”Read more
