Death-by-Chocolate – Friday Fictioneers Flash Fiction

Every Wednesday we get a new picture prompt for the Friday Fictioneers, a writing challenge graciously hosted by our Fairy Blog Mother Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. Imagine my surprise when the picture this week is one I sent in. I had intended to skip this round because last week I had so little time to read other stories. But I can’t possibly do that now, so I whipped up a little tale.

Do you need a little incentive for writing more regularly? Then this project is for you.

1. Did you meet your writing/editing goals?

Herba

The planet’s called Herba, which fits. There’s grass everywhere, very tall grass, and lots of it. We didn’t detect any other life-signs from space. I don’t know what we hope to find here, but when you’re ordered on an expedition, you go. Continue reading “Herba – Friday Fictioneers Flash Fiction”

Bright Dots in a Black Sky

I’ve been on vacation, which basically meant hanging out with the family, cuddling the pets, making jam, and looking at the stars (which I do whenever I can). The last Friday of my vacation had a special treat: a total lunar eclipse. Mars right now is very close and nicely visible as well, as are some other planets. At the moments we also have the perseid meteor shower, but with these I’m never lucky. I usually sleep when they are at their best. So here, to demonstrate my crazy efforts to photograph the moon and stars with my new phone, I’ll present a gallery of bright dots in a black sky. Don’t laugh…

You’ll find the rules and some of the earlier badges on the Project 10K Page.

I’m a bit late this month, sorry about that. But here we are, it’s August, and where I live it is hot and humid, not something I like. I’m more compatible with cooler weather but never mind. I hope your July was pleasant.

Here are our standard questions:

Do you need a little incentive for writing more regularly? Then this project is for you.

1. Did you meet your writing/editing goals?
2. Did you have fun writing?
3. Did the P10K help with motivation?
