Cacophony

This was a 250 word piece written based on the picture below, a large number of alpine horns. I wrote from the perspective of someone experiencing sensory issues in relation to them. She flinched as she stepped into the station.  It was silent, but she knew the horror that awaited her.  It wasn’t the subway’s … Continue reading Cacophony

My World

This tiny horror fic was inspired by the scene of a young girl laying in a field of flowers in a blue dress day dreaming. I am sure you know the one I am not mentioning explicitly. It quickly took a very dark turn. She lay in the field, eyes closed, the sun warm on … Continue reading My World

Hear Me Roar

Please note this contains descriptions of an abusive relationship and may be triggering to some. On the surface he was perfect. Tall, strong, handsome, with money and personality to spare.  He was a catch … Continue reading Mr. Right

This microfiction was to base a story in an apartment in the middle of the afternoon. it got dark, fast, and its got a death … Continue reading Order

The Marking of Marks

This was for the final week of The Writer’s Mess challenge, odd celebrations. I chose the picture prompt below, and melded it a little with some good old fashioned parental bribery.
