Moore Writes #6

Posted by on Sep 20, 2013 in Flash Fiction | 0 comments

This week’s bit of writing is a twisted retelling of Red Riding Hood I was playing with a few months ago. I was digging through some files and found it hiding, so you get a complete flash fiction story as a special treat. I hope you enjoy Red. I’ve been writing something new this week that’s captured my interest. It’s a novelette-length contemporary romance between a swimmer and a poet called Deep Water. It may be the mostly sweetly romantic story I’ve ever written. That’s all you get on that one… for now. -C

Moore Writing #2

Posted by on May 29, 2013 in Flash Fiction | 0 comments

Nothing new to report again this week because I’ve been writing the synopsis of Forgotten Magic in preparation for an application to a writing workshop. Synopsis writing is perhaps the most evil form of torture known to writers. You’ve slaved over this book, worked on it for months, adding in all of the subtleties and subplots so what you’ve got a is lovely representation of your soul. Now you have to take each chapter you worked so hard on and boil it down to two or three sentences. Ugh. Anyway, I’m almost done with that particular hell and will hopefully have...

Seldom Weekly Flash #9 – Incendius

Posted by on Jan 19, 2012 in Flash Fiction | 0 comments

This week’s flash fiction story comes from the Creative Process class I took last semester. I learned so much in that class and as a bonus got a couple of nice stories out of the experience. This is one of my favorites. As always, comments are welcome. Incendius is the story of a girl who is too hot to handle.

(Not Really) Weekly Flash #8 – Running Dark

Posted by on Oct 14, 2011 in Flash Fiction | 1 comment

More flash fiction! I know you’ve been waiting for it. I have too. I really can’t emphasize how much I’ve grown to love this form over the last few months. There’s something appealing about having to work in a confined space and still get a meaningful story. This was actually a class assignment where I was supposed to put a twist in a work in progress by point of view and putting the character in a strange situation. Lock is a character I’ve struggled with for several weeks now. I enjoy writing him, but he’s the type that just won’t cooperate. He has...

The Bunnies Have Come At Last!

Posted by on Sep 1, 2011 in Flash Fiction, Found in the Wild | 4 comments

At long last, I’m officially published. Pink Snowbunnies in Hell: A Flash-Fiction Anthology is available for sale now at Smashwords, Amazon, and B&N. A sleep-deprived author mixes up her metaphors. A graphic designer has too much time on his hands. Twenty writers, fueled by copious amounts of chocolate, dream up quirky, funny, and occasionally creepy stories. And the Pink Snowbunnies in Hell Flash-Fiction Anthology was born. These are very short stories, under a thousand words each. Some have actual bunnies. Some take rather offbeat trips through the underworld. And some just have...

Weekly Flash #7 – Survivor

Posted by on Aug 12, 2011 in Flash Fiction | 0 comments

It’s been a while since I posted some flash fiction. This particular story was written about a month ago, and I sent it to two magazines that declined. Their loss is your gain! It’s quite different from what I usually write in that it’s first person point of view and present tense. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever written that combination before. I had fun with it, and I hope you enjoy. Comments are always welcome! Survivor is a love story, of sorts.
