Flash fiction…word count 33 or less…

Note from Eric: I’m down with a bad flu and unable to visit/post comments on your weblogs. I’ll do the best I can but rest assured will catch up in a few days or so…



  1. Geez, I can do without this guest. Only leaves goose bump on me, absolutely not good company. This is freaky business.
    Hope you are feeling better today.

  2. A picture is worth a thousand words… But in such few words you can paint a most vivid picture. Well done, I hope you get well soon.

    1. Thank you for this high compliment. I did not see it that way > painting a 1000-word picture with a 33-word flash fiction. Hmmmm….what a thought…

      P/s Yes, am getting better.

    1. Congratulations Fiona, and also to all your nominees. It is always humbling to be recognised by fellow bloggers. Thank you for passing this award to me, Eric πŸ™‚

      P/s: Yes, I am getting better.

  3. My first time reading a flash fiction, so that’s how it is ^_^ very nice choice of words! When circumstances break off the law of nature it gave us the chills, of course you know other entities from “other” part of the world could have been around… (~-_-)~
    get well soon sir! πŸ˜€

      1. Please go to your Comments and check the Spam folder on the header – if it is not there, then WP must have eaten it πŸ™

  4. omg this is absolutely marvelous..gave me chills…
    Hey how are you now..
    get well soon…
    and pls do write more of such thrilling flash frictions πŸ™‚
    loved it πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you Soma – I plan to post at least one flash fiction a week…and see how it goes.

      Feeling slightly better – and work is piling up as my publisher is on my case about my novel – deadline nearing. Not to worry – I’ll make it. And thank you for asking…

      Peace, Eric (No hugz as I don’t want to spread my flu πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you Sharmishtha.

      Horror is new for me but I reckon mundane “props” evoke greater fear/horror than old run-down castles.

      Not many encounter/enter castles but most have steak dinners (hence my flash fiction, Dinner); a gust of wind is common in many homes; and, we’ve all seen or involved in a road kill (see flash fiction Road, Killed)

  5. Strange climate in Singapore: flu in summer, wind inside the house but not outside. I think I’ll stay here! πŸ˜‰
    Love and hugs.
    Get well soon!

    1. Thank you…

      I read somewhere – if one can write flash fictions > leads to tight short stories > leads to tight/fast paced novels. Glad you found “Guest” intriguing.

  6. I’m ashamed to say I read it once – moved along and then stopped suddenly – hey – the leaves…So then came back and read it again – man, that’s scary!!

  7. I really like what you’ve got going on here. Perfectly sets up conflict, setting, and character in a few words. Keep up the good work – flash fiction needs dedicated writers like you!

      1. You’re welcome, sir. I’ll be sure to stop by again soon.
        You may have inspired me to try my hand at flash fiction/sudden fiction again. I’ve had one flash piece published, but I’ve not really revisited the style in a while.

I like to hear your thoughts
