Day 1: [A]bigail Morton

Hi all! So it has begun Blogging from A to Z. I’m a little behind, but not to worry I’ll be caught by Monday. Just in case you’re new here. I’m writing 26 short stories (500 words or less) for the Blogging from A to Z Challenge. You can read my theme reveal here.

I hope you enjoy them and as always please feel free to share your thoughts.


Abigail Morton. What can one say about Ms. Abigail Morton? She was mean. She was spiteful. She was hateful. Indeed she was all of these things and much more, but in spite of them she was the kindest person you’d ever meet. She took care . . . took pride in what she did for others. Abigail

“Occupant”

I came across this flash fiction (Flash Fiction for the Purposeful Practitioner) challenge by happenstance and I’m always up for a challenge.

So, here is another. I hope you enjoy the irony.

Well, needless to say this unfortunate incident required a trip to the emergency Read More…

#SoCS – Tiresome

socs-badge-2015I had other plans for today’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt. I had originally planned to use this as my 10-minute writing prompt, but it wasn’t inspiring me creatively. So, I sat down and started thinking about the word – tire, and was coming up pretty much empty as to what to write. Then I called upon the Google gods to help me find some words and lo and behold  when I saw the word – tiresome it clicked
