Flash Fiction – Space

In February 2021, Storytelling Collective had a flash fiction prompt month and of course, I didn’t hit every day (or really get close) but I did end up with some favourites I want out in the world, even in their unedited form. Space When Marta was promoted, her rooming was upgraded. Rather than sharing a room with three others, she only had one roommate. The extra space felt luxurious. The bunk was flanked by two slim closets, allowing each girl their own place to hang the lavender uniforms that marked…

Flash Fiction – Creature

In February 2021, Storytelling Collective had a flash fiction prompt month and of course, I didn’t hit every day (or really get close) but I did end up with some favourites I want out in the world, even in their unedited form.
