I’m supposed to be writing so it’s the perfect time to post a new snippet.

I’m going way back into the archives to an abandoned story today. It looks like this one was written in November 2014. I never finished the story, and I really have no idea what it’s about, but like I said, I’m procrastinating, so here it is anyway. As always, this is unedited.

This week’s Sunday Snippet is from a short story that I finished a couple of hours ago. It’s for the March flash fiction contest on the Crystal Lake Publishing Patreon page. This month’s theme is “workplace horror”.

The guests fawned over each other, piling on the hyperbolic praise and the false modesty. It was Hollywood at its most fake, and Otto loved it all.

A Year of Not Writing

Last year was pretty much a complete bust when it came to personal writing. I did a lot of very cool writing in my day job, but I managed a mere 10,485 words on my own projects. That’s the lowest since I started tracking wordcounts in 2012.
