It’s time for a new flash fiction piece 🙂

I’m using prompts from the fabulous #FlashFicHive Twitter game created by Anjela Curtis.

Diane sighed and stopped typing. The cursor blinked mockingly, almost like the smile of her anti-hero. Somewhere between dreaming of a gothic castle and writing about an ancient being used to others wanting to kill him for glory, she had become as troubled and paranoid as her main character.

The music in the background broke through to her and she clenched her fists, her aching fingers screaming at the abuse. Perhaps it was time to return to writing in a notebook.

I haven’t written flash fiction in almost a month, so it was good to use the prompts provided to create a story. I started with looking for GIFs of my favourite vampire from The Originals.

Then, to flesh out the story, I created a mood/story board. (Images from Pinterest.)

I listened to a playlist with my favourite songs by The All-American Rejects while writing. It was so much fun writing something new without any deadlines or expectations – just for the fun of it.

I hope you enjoyed this story. Comments are always welcome. Do you write flash fiction? What are you currently working on?
