Friday fic – fifty word stories

Two fifty word stories for you, on rather varied topics - vertigo, the end of the world, and regency romance. I'm reading my first ever Mills and Boon book (having run out of MC Beaton's Regency stories) a Regency Romance, and it's not at all what I expected. Mind you I picked it because it...

Friday Fic – fights and flights

It's been another tough week on various fronts, so these three stories have a rather embattled theme. This morning I thought I would have no fifty-word stories to share. I felt too burned out by Real Life to contemplate microfiction. But then I sat and wrote randomly for a while in my office, that is, McDonalds,... Continue Reading →

Friday fic – fifty-word stories

I've also just started reading Pixel Juice by Jeff Noon.  And I realised there several X-men... Continue Reading →

Friday fic – fifty word stories

Here are three more fifty-worders. Only one is about the monsters, a snippet of backstory about humans' arrival on the planet. The others are not connected.   I'm still not sure if a book made up of a multitude of tiny, fifty-word chapters could be a real thing. Anyway, here's another piece of the story about...

Friday fic – fifty word stories

It's Friday and time for some fiction. I have fallen in love with writing to a fifty word limit after discovering the Scottish Book Trust's 50-word challenge, and so here are three very short stories of fifty words each.  It's been Pancake Day and Valentine's Day this week - so these stories feature love, and pancakes....
