Short Stories

The Storm: Inspired by the DailyPrompt “Grey,” this story was a lot of fun to write.

Poetry

Rainsong, Puppies > Chocolate, and Aria’s Request: A few haiku I wrote with Cloud for fun.  I encourage you to check out her haiku too!

Someday: A Poem : “Someday” always comes.  I hope your “someday” is a good one.

Flash Fiction

These super-short pieces are a joy and a challenge to write!  The trick – and the difficulty – is to fit a story into 150 words or less.

A Note about “Mondays Finish the Story”

Several of these flash fictions were prompted by the Mondays Finish the Story project, which was run by the late Barbara W. Beacham, who provided photos as well as a sentence to start the story off right.  Though I only participated in the challenge a few times, Barb’s positivity & beautiful photos are still an inspiration to me.  She will be missed.
