This week’s challenge over at terribleminds, another ten titles! (Seriously, if you are ever in need of a quick title to try and write to, I highly recommend that site).

This is a bit of steampunk fantasy and no one dies! I know, I was as surprised as you.



This story was generated in response to an image prompt for a writing group I belong to on Facebook. Image link is here.

The story does feature one my favorite recurring characters, the veteran with a cybernetic arm, Tom. And where there’s Tom, there has to be Sunny.


This week’s challenge– pick one of ten predetermined titles and write a story with it. Target goal was about 2000 words. I ended up with a bit over 1700.

I’ve used Carlisle before, and he’s a character I’m playing with a bit, getting the feel for him and what he’s about, so I’m grateful for the chance to take him out for a spin again.


Another year, another flash fic challenge from Chuck Wendig. This is the Flickr challenge.

The image that goes with this story can be found here. The words are all mine, however. As always, comments are welcome and appreciated.
