Episode 11 of Bujilli's Sojourn is now up and the adventure is already in full-swing as Bujilli find himself watching in horror as a party of adventurers have blundered right into the very monster that he himself only narrowly avoided just a few moments before. Should he go and help these newcomers? Should he just sit tight and watch them die horribly before his very eyes? Or should he turn his back on these unfortunate souls and get on with his own adventure?
The goal is to post a brand new piece of flash fiction every Friday. Most flash fiction clocks in at under 1,000 or 2,000 words, but can be as brief as 365 words, 101 words, 140 words, five or six sentences, even just six words. There's a lot of room for experimentation and exploration.
The Friday Flash meme is hosted by the nice people at the Friday Flash website. Sometimes I use the prompts, or I use other prompts, other times I don't use any prompts. It all depends on my mood and the phase of the moon.
You can find out more about the challenge, and what stories are available each Friday by clicking over to the Friday Flash G+ Group.. Stories are listed from Newest to Oldest. Thanks for taking a look. 2015
It's a beautiful, sunny day and I've just returned from a pleasant walk out amongst the towering oaks and lesser trees of one of the local parks. Had a shot of pumpkin syrup in my coffee while I was out. Warm sun and a cool breeze, the leaves are just beginning to change and we're on the very threshold of October. It's good to be alive.
This past weekend, on Sunday, we went off to attend the Second Foundation Group's discussion of Mr. Arthur Machen. We met Mr. Till from the FATE SF & Everwayan blogs for brunch there at Merlin's Rest, a Britophile-type pub. Brunch was pretty decent all in all, and I was happy to sample Strongbow Cider once and for all. Wonderful stuff. Especially for breakfast. Yum.
In regards to Mr. Machen...
"Sorcery and sanctity...these are the only realities. Each is an ecstasy, a withdrawal from the common life."
...I've read a great deal of his work, especially his weird fiction, some of his essays, The Hill of Dre…
