Other Flash Fiction

Something new I’ve been working on is flash fiction, or what some may even call micro fiction. I get much of my inspiration from reading history and old PS1 games I used to play (like the Final Fantasy series). But I also get a lot of inspiration from others’ artwork, particularly for places and characters. I find a lot of this at DeviantArt, and I post my inspired flash fiction there (and on Reddit and Twitter).

None of this flash fiction is part of the Earthpillar world, and some of it veers into other genres like science fiction, steampunk, and grimdark. But it’s been a fun way for me to keep writing a bit while taking a break before editing my novels. If these tiny stories interest you, just follow the links below to DeviantArt to read them (scroll down to the comments) and check out the artists' awesome work.
