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…

On Baseball

In honor of spring training and the weather being nicer, I’m posting a short story on baseball, titled: On Baseball. This is shorter than usual, so I might post something a little later on in the day. Stay tuned! On Baseball No one has enough time To sit and watch A newly installed clock Behind…

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…

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….

Birthday

I just turned 22 the other day and my friends definitely made it one to remember. I’m going to write something birthday-related, but not related to what happened to me, even though it would be one hell of a story.   Birthday All kinds of emotions creep in. Happy, but sad; nervous, too. I look…

Redemption

Lately, I’ve been using the writing prompts on Reddit for inspiration. It’s tough writing flash fiction while working on a much longer story. I find it really hard to compartmentalize the two. I spend most of my creative energy on the bigger story because to me, it’s more important, so trying to come up with…

Working With Titles (Hint Fiction)

Sorry for not posting anything in a while. I want to say that I’ve been occupied, but I’d be lying. I’m trying to make more meaningful titles to stories. I feel like every time I write a blog post, I complain about not being able to come up with a title. Hint fiction is the…

More Hint Fiction

Hi everyone! I’ve been looking at some older stuff I wrote for class and I found some hint fiction stories that I think are actually worth posting. How do you guys feel about hint fiction? Is it possible to really tell a story only using twenty five words or less? Anyways, here are three separate…

Like Wine

I’ve been itching to write a story based on this specific picture for a while now. When I was looking at the huge barrels pointing towards Philadelphia, an ominous feeling was looming over me. I purposefully edited the water to exaggerate the feeling I had, which then gave me inspiration for a hint fiction story….

Mrs. Butterworth’s 3125

Another hint fiction piece inspired by a conversation I had with my cousin over the weekend.   Mrs. Butterworth’s 3125 They didn’t know what they had stumbled upon. “A clear figurine of some sort.” “Most likely a—” “Get The Director right away!” “—Goddess!”

Hint Fiction

I’ve been playing around with hint fiction (stories with 25 words or less) again and have two stories: one that’s totally fiction and one that is fiction, but hits close to home.   Conclusions She did her best, but she was young. He tried not to hurt her feelings, but made no promises. As she…
