Ripe for the Picking

This week’s flash challenge on Chuck Wendig’s site was apples. Yes, apples. Hence the title of my story. And from the list of bizarre apple names, I randomly chose (with a number generator): 23, 16 and 9 – Oliver, Margil and Court Pendu Plat.  And i’m sensing a theme here between this week’s story, and…

The Enemy Rule

This week on Chuck Wendig’s blog is another Random Title flash fiction challenge. He gave 10 different titles, created by a title generator, and I got 8, using Random.org, which gave me The Enemy Rule. After just having finished a 10,000 word short story, writing a 1,000 word story will be a breeze.So without further…

There Goes The Sun

I apologize for the story delay lately. Last week’s Chuck Wendig challenge was ‘You Are Carrying’ – where you had to tweet to the bot @YouAreCarrying, and it would give you a randomized list of items to include in your story of 2000 words. So my randomized list of words (which are italicized in the…

Twelve Mile Limit

This week’s Chuck Challenge was another cocktail one. Pick a cocktail name from a list of 20 and that’s the title of your story. I used Random.org to pick a number, before even looking at the list of names, and Twelve Mile Limit is what I got. And it’s kinda weird. So here it is:…

The Labyrinthine Helix

This week’s Chuck Wendig challenge on his blog was yet another Random Title one. Where you pick a word from each column and that’s your title. I got 7 and 3, and therefore here’s my story, The Labyrinthine Helix. Josephine had always wanted to be a scientist. Because she wanted to help people she said. It…

Little Orphan Ivy

I’m actually on track with this week’s Chuck Wendig fiction challenge – to choose 5 random words from this random list of words. I chose orphan, casket, whalebone, acid, and hermit. So here you go. It’s 1,000 words exactly (which is the target that Chuck usually sets for a word count). Ivy Malone was an orphan.…

Bring Back The Sun

Once again i’m late for last week’s Chuck Wendig Flash Fiction challenge to write a short piece of flash fiction (1,000 words) in 10 chapters. I’ll hopefully get around to posting this week’s story within the week (maybe even tomorrow!). So without further ado, here is my steampunk/fantasy story in 10 micro-chapters, Bring Back The Sun (and…
