Short works, flash fiction and drabbles. These pieces may be as short as one hundred words, or as long as five hundred. They may be speculative in nature, or just a bit of prose poetry.

 I will be adding these on a fairly regular basis. The listing below is an idea of what is to come. As I add to this collection, more descriptions will be added.

Many of these works have appeared on other writing sites such as Wattpad or Figment, so no calling the plagerism police on me! These works are all mine.

FAIRY TALE TWISTS:
The first five pieces were responses to the Stung flash fiction challenge at Figment.com. Each day a prompt was given with a fairy tale theme to be told with a futuristic twist.

1. Alone
A vast tower is Sheria's prison, the warden a creature beyond imagining. A retelling of when Beauty meets the Beast with a futuristic twist in one hundred and fifty words or less.

2. The Imminent End
Jennel risks all for one magical night. A retelling of when Cinderella leaves the ball with a futuristic twist in one hundred and fifty  words or less.

3. The Cure
Delilah's family is doomed, and she is helpless to aid them. That is until a stranger offers her a solution. A  retelling of when Rumpelstiltskin first meets the miller's daughter with a futuristic twist in one hundred and fifty words or less.

4. Exquisite Specimen

5. Ominous Fate
A retelling of Hansel and Gretel finding the witch's cottage with a futuristic twist in one hundred and fifty words or less.

 

DRABBLES:
A drabble is an extremely short work of fiction of exactly one hundred words in length, not necessarily including the title.The purpose of the drabble is brevity, testing the author's ability to express interesting and meaningful ideas in an extremely confined space.

Drown Girl
A drabble based on a dream I had, a variation on one I've had since childhood when ever I'm staying at my parents house.

The Harbinger
Another drabble based on an experience I had while driving.

She is
A little character sketch in the form of prose poetry. 


WEEKLY FLASH:

Silence and Secrets
A bit of background story for my 'DreamWalker' series.

 

SHORT STORY CLUB CHALLENGE CORNER (at Wattpad):

Hungry Gods
A scifi drabble inspired by an image prompt of a massive metal humanoid looming over a man on a horse.

 

RANDOM BITS:

Night Drive
A very very old piece from when I was a teen driving home through the country at night.
