There are times when I make a narrative decision and I know it’s not quite the right decision. Yet, I barrel down the narrative path anyway. At these times, I really should get a second opinion from Eric. This week will be be going back up the path, cleaning up a few things, and going down a better path.
What is This?
Wicked Witch, Retired is my current writing project. It is the sort-of sequel to a flash story I wrote, “Wicked Witch for Hire,” which is currently available in the anthology Bounded in a Nutshell.
I had fun doing #FlashFicHive last week. The pace though, man. Definitely a different set of muscles from what I’m used to. Kinda sorta following the prompts, I finished one story (below, or link) that I’m okay with and started a second which, if I finish it, will probably be longer than 1000 words. I included some process for “The Logical Sight” if you’re into seeing how the sausage is made.
Sadly, I realized on Monday of this week that I really have too much going on this month to really give #FlashFicHive enough attention.
- I want to get a full draft of Wicked Witch, Retired done by the end of October.
- We’re relaunching Eric’s PHYSIC series at the end of this month/beginnging of September and I need to make sure I have all my ducks in a row.
- VOTS leagues. Set up and registration for two of them.
So, yeah, probably no more flash fiction for me this month…unless inspiration strikes. 😉
