T: Out Of Time- Mini Flash Fiction

I got very little sleep last night. School meetings, birthday parties, and grocery shopping today... I just don't have the time or energy to write you up a story today.

I DO have one planned though. And tomorrow is my birthday (28 yrs old O.o) so I plan on coming back to this page to make up today's T post as well as write Friday's U post that must also utilize the 52 week flash fiction challenge word "bleed".

Come back to this link tomorrow... eh probably by the afternoon, and I will have this story ready for you!

Until then... See you later alligators! I'm heading to the land of nod! I've got a meeting with Rivi that I need to keep before I fall asleep.

Thursday' Story
5 Sentence Fiction
This 5 sentence fiction is inspired by a scene I am working on in the sequel to The Alien Mind. The story won't stay exactly like this- five sentence fiction just helps me storyboard the scenes.

"I've been given permission to alter his timeline, say Goodbye Rivi," the Aruk futurity histographer said rather smugly on her computer screen.

Their previous argument no longer on her mind she jumped up and threw her arms around Dan as if her embrace could keep him there with her. Dan returned her embrace but only for a few seconds before his timeline was erased and his body started to disappear. Rivi cried; hot tears running down her face as her arms collapsed though his disappearing form. Once he was completely gone, her computer screen darkened and she was left with one single thought: why did she still remember him?

Today's post was also inspired by the letter T. T is for: Time   as part of the Blogging from A to Z April 2015 challenge! Click on the letter to join on in the fun!

Every day (excluding sundays) I will be writing a post about something that begins with the letter for that day. Most of the time you will find a sci-fi flash fiction piece here.

For Readers:  Time travel and time alteration- practical or a mess waiting to happen? ;)


  1. This week has been time-consuming, hasn't it? I feel so slammed...
