FLASH FICTION

Flash_Fiction_Header_by_Chuuurls2

Am planning to start taking part in the flash fiction challenges that pop up all over the internet.  I was a regular a few years back.

Due to brain age I can’t remember any other than Vis Dare – (Angela Goff is the host.)

So drop me a note and let me know which ones you submit to every week.

HOSTS – I will place links in my sidebar if you happen to be passing this way.

Problem Solved

Time for a bit of a flash I think.

PROBLEM SOLVED

‘I’m not signing it.” Bernard bangs his fist on the table and the pen jerks away.

”Think you’ll find you are mate. Marcus wants the cops off his back and that family need closure.”

Delaney circles the table and puts the pen back in front of Bernard.

”It’s a bloody confession and it reads like a suicide note as well. We both know I didn’t do it. Marcus did.”

”Just do it Bernie. Sorts everything out and you can bugger off to Rio or some place for a while.”

”No.”

”Well you have two choices. You know what Marcus wants he gets, and he wants this sorted now. If I was you mate I would do it and get the hell out of here.”

They hear the outer door open and thirty seconds later Marcus steps into the room.

”Not signed it for me yet Bernard? It’s only a bloody signature.”

”I’m not signing it.” Bernard makes to rise from the chair.

”Jeez I don’t have time for this. It’s your fucking choice.” Marcus steps back and pulls out his gun.

”Problem solved” he says and shoots Bernard dead.

He turns to Delaney. ”Now you sign the sodding paper.”

It’s A Random Choice

So how many WIP’s have you got? I have eight and to my thinking they all have the potential to be something, if not a full length novel, (I have the attention span of a gnat,) they may make it to Novella length.

But herein lies the problem.  I get several chapters in and then lose the plot.  Sound familiar?

The fact that I am a panster doesn’t really help.  I mean I couldn’t organise the proverbial p*ss up in a brewery so my chances or planning a story are nil.  Seriously.

This therefore, is my plan.  I have put all the working titles of these said WIP’s through a random generator and the one that has come out on top, wait a minute and I will tell you about it, is the one I am going to work on here, on this blog.

I have no real idea what genre it is, but when did that ever stop me? It has murder, a gang of prostitutes (so a bit of sex,) and a head of house who is not entirely what she seems. Oh and it’s set in the Victorian era so the language has played me up a bit – lots of research, but that’s okay, I can do research.

May surprise you to know that I have conducted two interviews with my characters. One with the MC and one with that lady of the house. So I will share those later.

So this is just a working cover, for which I would like to thank the talented Miraly – the girl rocks.

WHORE.SLAYER

Lilith is just a street girl, working up dark alleys and more frequently, down at the docks.

She stumbles upon the very ordinary home of Madam Cynthia and before long she has several of her working acquaintances ensconced in the comfort of said home.

All goes relatively well until the Madam chooses her to entertain a gentleman of distinction in his home.  She is not to breathe a word to anyone of this liaison.

 

See you back here later, I may need your help.
