The twenty-eighth of fifty-two short stories completed!
This week I wrote a 1,424-word piece of flash fiction inspired by the Writer’s Digest prompt: “Write from the perspective of a guardian angel.” The story I wrote is about an AI monitoring and predicting weather events across North America and providing emergency response recommendations. This is the closest story I’ve written that could potentially fall into the Solarpunk subgenre.

Back to prose this week with a 1900-word piece of cozy science fiction. Very much influenced by my binge of the Wayfarer series by Becky Chambers. I had a good time writing this piece and I very much look forward to revisiting it for revision.

Having been a little burned out on writing prose, I decided to change things up this week by writing a . . . comic script! It’s a short, three-page script coming in at 631 words set in the Star Trek Lower Deck setting. I had a fun time researching how to write a comic script and a format to use, writing for a visual medium as opposed to a written medium was a nice change of pace, and writing a more humorous piece is not something I have done much of so it made the experience feel fresh. I might continue exploring comic scripts in the weeks to come.

I finally finished drafting a 4,615-word science fiction short story I began a few weeks back. It didn’t end up having all the scenes I expected, but overall the story played out as I wanted. I intend to revisit this story in the future. Drafting stories has become a struggle in the last month, especially for stories beyond two scenes. Flash fiction has been easier, so I’ll probably be focusing on writing that until drafting stops feeling like homework.
