Rena [HORROR FLASH FICTION]

I’ve never attempted to write from an unreliable narrator‘s perspective. There’s a first time for everything. Michael, the narrator in this story, is not completely lying, but obscuring the glaring truth. Quite possibly the most morbid and implausible story I’ve written. I’m uncertain where inspiration came from; I’d like to think external influences inspired this one,…

Please Stay [FLASH FICTION]

Originally, this post was supposed to be a satirical piece revolving around an infatuated man. It’s deliberately lavish in detail and a little absurd in terms of emotions… yet, I discovered I can’t write about infatuation/unrequited love meaninglessly, and concluded with a more philosophical ending than I expected. In italics are questions, following the “interview/interviewer”…

Night Carnival [FLASH FICTION]

Ray Bradbury’s Something Wicked This Way Comes was the first classic I read cover-to-cover, so although this post a little late, I felt this challenge spoke to me. Also, I never realised he had such a methodical way of obtaining creativity; I think it’s wonderful to create your own inspiration. And, so, here is my attempt at writing…

Cheerful, Isolated Harmony [FLASH FICTION]

The following piece is a short but visual piece of my regular mornings. It’s more of a timeless piece, so I was vague as to certain details. But basically, it’s a recollection of my daily awakenings at 6:30 AM (up before any of my family). This is also during summer, the current season in Australia,…

Oh, All My Friends Are Turning Green [A Vignette/Flash Fiction]

This is the third line from the song, Riptide by Vance Joy. It was the last song I heard and extremely (ridiculously) catchy. Anyway, I decided to something a little different with this challenge and write a vignette instead –which is a literary sort of text-type, where objects, scenes and moods are extremely vital, along with the…
