Haven’t done one of these challenges in a while, but decided to try and knock some of the rust off. So, yes, a story featuring Good and Evil. Or, Good versus Evil. Though this may be more Evil vs. Evil. Ahh well. Enjoy. Original challenge can be found here! (more…)

Nothing like trying to write romance to remind me how bad I am at writing romance. Anyway, this was supposed to be a sword & sorcery/bodice ripper mashup (original challenge here courtesy of Mr. Chuck Wendig). It leans way more heavily on the former than the latter, and for that I apologize. As it is, it’s around 100 words longer than the 1500 mark, but I’m okay with that. This story does take place in the same ‘verse as the Liam the Black stories, but features all new characters. I’m interested to know what you think, so comment away! (more…)

This week’s challenge: going against authority. Man this story could be another two thousand words longer, couldn’t it? Anyway, highly appropriate that Tom gets to come out and play on this one. and yeah, Sunny’s there, in the background, even if she doesn’t get screen time. Alas.

As always, comments are appreciated.

This week’s challenge: To Behold the Divine. I took the opportunity to get Liam the Black back out there, even for a non-canon story, to explain a little bit more where he comes from and why has little patience for gods, spirits and other such hoodoo. Maybe not quite what the challenge was calling for, but given my current state of mind it was good to write something, maybe even especially because a Liam the Black story was just rejected. Comments and such are welcome, as always.

So this is part three to a scary story and where the rubber meets the road so to speak.

This is my continuation to a chain story (and this week’s Chuck Wendig Challenge). And yes, I don’t write much horror, can’t you tell?

Here’s where you can find part I:  https://cheesywriterblog.wordpress.com/2016/10/14/stranger-at-the-table/

This week’s challenge (after having been on hiatus for a bit) is to work a vacation theme into the story. I went for a nearish future kind of piece that ended up a lot less action-y and a lot more talk-y than I perhaps intended. As always, comments are welcome.

I know, I should probably call this “The Campaigner’s Return Part 3,” but I like The Serpent’s Map as a title better. Regardless, this is part three of who knows how many, continuing the adventure of Graciano and Viktoria. In this episode, Graciano reacquaints himself with an old friend, deals are struck, and pirates are fought. Still no magic, but this is a very alternative earth kind of feel to it. Will this continue? Yes, probably, even if I don’t use it to continue the Chuck Wendig Challenges. And yes, this in response to the challenger which was that it had to start with a knock on a door.

A simple enough challenge, or so you’d think. The story needs to start with a bang. Taken anyway you want.

So here you go, a bit of a swashbuckling tale, the kind I really should write more of.

A short piece for this week’s challenge as I am running smack dab into the deadline. I highly recommend checking out some of the other entries. I know I will be.
