You might have noticed that I skipped Cliche Sunday this week. Not only was it Easter, but we worked outside around the house all weekend and I was whipped. Clichés will return this week–and almost thru the alphabet we are too! Never thought I would get there. What shall I do next?

However, speaking of alphabets, if you are jonesing for some phrases this week; I invite you to check out my fellow blogger, Prakash Hegade. He is doing the A-Z challenge for April and has chosen to do an idiom a day: in alphabetical order, of course. Not only does he provide that meaning of the idiom, he provides a poem for each one too! Definitely worth a read or two 🙂

Story Day Deadline

So not sure if anyone noticed, but down past the twitter feed and the tags on the right column is this little button that promised a longer story on Feb 28th.

I certainly didn’t notice! I picked that day arbitrarily in January and then totally forgot to post the promised story. Not that I didn’t have the story, just that I forgot to post it.

So this week I will be posting an installment each day. The first installments are from a series I started for my Flash Fiction posts; both Friday Fictioners and Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers.

No longer being bound by word count, I did a bit of editing and tied them together a little better. The last installment is one I planned, but never posted. I hope you enjoy them all 🙂

So I have to say that I am sorry for my lack of posts this previous week. Work was nuts, and I worked several long days: 7am to 8 pm and 8am to 8pm. Keep in mind that I work in a hospital where medical personnel routinely work 12 hour shifts, so there was no one feeling sorry for me. Except for me 😉 I will try to do better next week.

This is where I admit to being lost in a book series this week and not doing anything I was supposed to do, such as, oh,  posting on Tuesday. The good news is that the series gave me a great idea on perspective which I will be posting next Tuesday!

Meanwhile, anyone spot Marty or Doc today?

Normally my Tuesday post would be about the craft of writing. But George reached out and tugged on my pocket too, so here he is. My first 100 word flash fiction without a prompt!
