The Garden – #bradburychallenge week 2 – Whiteboard Wednesday

“The Garden” is my second story in the Bradbury Challenge, in which I write a story (or chapter) each week for a year. This one came from inspiration in my tabletop RPG group’s chat. It’s a story I had to sit down and write immediately.

Attempting the Ray Bradbury Challenge #BradburyChallenge like @KatFrench

“Write a short story every week. It’s not possible to write 52 bad short stories in a row.”

– Ray Bradbury

So, my author friend Katina French is doing the “Ray Bradbury Challenge”, that is, to write a story a week, for a year. I am a shameless fangirl of her writing, so naturally I very much approve of this plan.

As for me, I have needed some motivation to get back in a regular writing habit, so I think I’ll give it a try myself. However, since I’ve started working on the third in my Trans-Continental series, I am going to count a chapter as a short story for this purpose. So far I have written just one story, but I have another in mind, and of course, Trans-Continental: Chimera is waiting impatiently for me to get rolling as well.

This post is sort of a declaration of intent, to help hold me to the project. Wish me luck!

This week’s Whiteboard Wednesday is based on as yet unreleased flash fiction by Katina French (being a beta reader has perks!). What do you suppose is going on in this scene? Comment with your guesses!

Fairy Dust – Whiteboard Wednesday

This one has nothing much to do with my books, it’s just me being fanciful. Oh, it could be one of Minnie’s friends in the Tipsy Fairy Tales, though the fairies there tend to be more of the Grimm variety. And yeah, the imagery is more appropriate for Spring than Fall, but I wanted to portray some hope, to counter some bleak times recently.
