Fiction Corner

It’s a corner where fiction is. Duh.

Introducing “Nano” 28

Many a moon ago, when I was many moons younger, I told you I’d be doing more fiction. Then I forgot all about it and posted zero fiction, apart from the occasional “totally true story.” That’s because I’m an unreliable, untrustworthy asshole who will never amount to anything and also smells funny. My mom was right! Jokes aside, I’ve been slow on the fiction front, so I’m trying once again to rectify this. To that […]

Flash Fiction: “Not ready…” 15

A new Flash Fiction challenge at Dude Write is open. This is my submission. As always, 500 words maximum. This month’s prompt: She ran through the forest, ignoring the scrapes left on her exposed arms by the tree branches, the chilling air that sneaked through her thin dress and under her skin, the pain in her tired legs.

Less fortunately, he did so by colliding with two separate cargo containers and finally slamming into […]

With this piece I’m participating in a collaborative initiative between Dude Write and 100 Word Song.  Fictional piece of exactly 100 words. Inspired by “Strength” by The Alarm.  For visual and auditory reference, here: This is it: the ultimate test that separates the strong from the weak. I’ve lasted for more than thirty minutes, but I know it’s far from over. I need strength to make it through. As I pace back and forth in […]
