I'm currently taking part in Flash Fiction Month over on DeviantArt, writing and posting a story of 55 to 1,000 words each day of July.

Here are links to the first batch if anyone's interested in taking a look:

The Hero's Return Albert Braithwaite ponders on how much reward one man truly deserves.

In Bad Shape A rhombus arrives with interesting news for a line drawn between two points.

Restarting a Conversation A nice lady from the Articulation Association attempts to repair a conversation that has broken down.

The Elements of Attraction A grandmother attempts to play matchmaker after she's gone.

Show Your Working Out Discrimination against fractions in Mathematics.

Flying High A lady journalist plays fast and loose with the facts when reporting on the Wright brothers' first powered flight.

Bound Forms An adjective and a prefix are having marital problems.

Get Your Evil In Order Barry the Evil is being evil again. But sometimes he's his own worst enemy.

Author's pick: Restarting a Conversation!

And just adding it to this post because I was v. proud - my ACD microfic 'On The Shelf' was recently recced by [personal profile] ancientreader on [profile] 221_recs here.

Original post on Dreamwidth - there are comment count unavailable comments there.

I read them all. I think I like the first one best. But as always, it's amazing to see the different worlds you come up with.

And well done with On the Shelf!

I'm pleased you liked 'The Hero's Return' - I'm very fond of Albert ^_^ And thank you for taking the time to read them all ^__^

I was so thrilled about On The Shelf - it really isn't the sort of thing I would have expected to get a rec ^__^

Thanks for sharing the links, I do like your word play an awful lot...and congratulations on being recommended...really well done.

Liked the attempted conversation rescue and the fractions frantic calculations in particular.

I was very happy to get a rec - mine really isn't the sort of stuff I would expect to get recommended. (Though there has been the odd rec in the past ^^)

Thanks so much for taking a look at my stories - the ones you've mentioned are a couple of my favourites ^__^
