Extenuating Circumstances

Against my better judgment, I entered myself in NYC Midnight’s 2017 Flash Fiction Competition and was tasked with producing a story of no more than 1000 words in just under 48 hours. If that wasn’t enough, the story had to adhere to these guidelines:

Genre: Romance

Setting: Waiting Room

Object In Story: Banana Split

Romance is by far my least strongest suit, so the struggle was real. Ultimately, though, I came up with a piece that I’m pretty proud of called ‘Extenuating Circumstances’, which you can read here. Enjoy!

New Story – What’s The Worst That Could Happen?

Yesterday, I posted this stupid Facebook Status/Tweet:

Then, the very funny Kevin Froleiks demanded I write a full story about it. Since I have literally no free will of my own, I did so. And this is the result:

What’s The Worst That Could Happen?

I hope you’re happy, Kevin.

New Stories!

Just a quick update with two new short stories. You can view them at the Stories link above with some of my other work, or jump straight to them from here:

“In A Perfect World…” – My entry to the 2015 Scientific American Quantum Shorts Competition. A quick story that deals with Tegmark’s Hypothesis and Quantum Uncertainty. Yeah. Those ol’ chestnuts.

“Ground Work” – My award-nominated entry into DARPA’s 100 Year Space Ship Symposium’s Canopus Award for Interstellar Writing. The topic was “Finding Earth 2.0”. Definitely a fun one to write and a fun symposium to attend!

That’s all for now. Hopefully back in a bit with more!
