I’m awfully late this week. I’m stressed out from work and had no idea whatsoever, a complete creative blackout. On Saturday I had an idea that ended up with 149 words.

I was ready to give up, but I miss you people… So I sat down again, started the same idea from a different angle and now arrived at 100 words with the main theme still intact–and understandable I hope.

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”
