Window Seat

Yes, I wrote this while sitting at a window table in a bagel place on my lunch break. It was a quick spur of the moment thing. I had a funny thought and I wanted to expand it into a little micro fiction piece. Window Seat I accept the responsibility of taking the table next…

Grenade

I’ve had this idea in my head for a while, but I didn’t know where I’d actually go with it. I was thinking of writing up some kind of army story, but I don’t know enough about the military to write something that hasn’t already been done. Instead, I decided to work on my long,…

Pig, Hog, and Pork

I was originally going to post these stories as a three-part series, but they aren’t all that suspenseful; my intentions were for the reader to read them all together. I think it works better like this. Write your own three short stories like these! Make them all connected to each other. If you want, give…

A Place I Once Lived

Hey everyone. This is the follow up (it was part of the same assignment given in class) to the previous post. Again, the title is the prompt. The idea with this and the last post was to write short pieces with only one sentence paragraphs. A Place You Once Lived I lived in an upstairs…

A Place You Are Just Passing Through

This is another small flash fiction piece that I did in class. The title is the prompt. Write your own stories in the comments below or email me. I would love to start showcasing all my followers’ work here! Make it as long or as short as you want! Here’s mine: A Place You Are…

Blue Purse

This is a quick, little piece based on an object we were given in class. I was given a small coin purse and came up with this.  Blue Purse If you stare long enough at the purse, you get lost in all the colors, the shapes. They’re round like eyeballs; they stare back at you;…

On My Father and On Happiness

Another small hint fiction and a slightly larger story for you. I feel bad for not posting another story yesterday, so I’ll catch up today. On My Father He loves peanut butter, He loves chocolate, But he hates Reese’s. On Happiness When you ache From all the times you thought you’d fail And you were…

In the Fog

Hi everyone, I liked how my story came out yesterday so I did something similar tonight. I used another picture as inspiration for this short flash fiction piece, and I think this is pretty good too. Enjoy! Here’s the picture:    In the Fog The fog looked as soft as the moss we were stepping…

Roller Coaster

I know its almost 1:30am, and technically tomorrow, meaning that I missed my deadline, but oh well! Also, since it’s late, and I’m incredibly tired, I wrote a hint fiction piece. For those of you who follow my blog, I’ve done this many times in the past. I learned about hint fiction during my undergrad…

The Grass is Greener in California

School starts really soon and I’m not totally sure what to expect. My first day is this Thursday. I’ve been talking about getting my MFA for a long time and now that I’m actually going to start the process, I’m really nervous and excited. I can’t wait to grow as a writer and learn from…

Seeing Each Other for the First Time

This post is going to come from a prompt: Write about two people that see each other for the first time. Instinct tells me to do hint fiction, so that’s the plan, despite the limited number of likes it seems to generate. For those that don’t know, hint fiction is a story using twenty-five words or less….

Your Left Eye

This very short story is going to come from a prompt I found online: Open a random book to a random page and start your story with the first line on the page. The book will be This is How You Lose Her by Junot Diaz. The line: “Your left eye used to drift when you were tired…
