The polls are closed and the people have spoken! Your antagonist (by an overwhelming margin) is none other than Mr. George Costanza. Your good guy/gal was a different story. Throughout the voting period it was neck and neck between Tom Selleck and Flo from Progressive Insurance. In the end, by a single vote, your winner is… Flo! Tune in tomorrow for the story!

Rollerblading Extreme

Any rollerbladers out there? Not me. The last time I wore skates you needed a metal key to tighten them around your tennis shoes. I can still remember the jarring sensations that shot through my body every time the solid steel wheels hit the slightest bump or hole.

Of course, if there’d been something like this around when I was a kid, it might have been different!

Flash Fiction Fridays

pad-black-and-white

Flash Fiction Fridays is a new section of the website that will be running most weeks (probably on Fridays since the title would be confusing otherwise).

For those of you who may not know, flash fiction is a style of writing extremely brief stories. There’s no hard rule, but generally speaking it’s less than a thousand words, often far less. It’s challenging to communicate a story in so few words, and that’s part of the fun of it. It also helps build writing and editing skills since every word must be chosen carefully.
