Write 1/Sub 1 check in: week 39 the one with the end-of-summer colds

Week 39! A quiet week to end September, and I’m grateful for that. The whole house (all of us, minus the pets) had some form of end-of-summer cold, to varying degrees.

I’m so glad the Flash Fiction Challenge was last week. I had an automatic submission for this week and plenty of time to peck my way through a new story.

This week I played around with a Puss in Boots retelling for a call for submissions I discovered. By doing so, I filled up the last pages of my notebook. My daughter was paging through it, somewhat amazed that I had filled in every single page, and asked: “How do you think of so many stories to write?”

I told her I didn’t know. And actually, my best writing happens when I don’t think, or at least, not too hard.


  • Puss in Boots retelling ~ 2,000 words


  • Five to Freedom


  • Alliance


  • None
