My Patreon microfiction: ‘Legacy.’

I was the one who wrote ‘Legacy,’ and I still don’t know whether this was a reward, or a subtle punishment. I flip-flop on it from sentence to sentence, honestly. How much does anybody really want to know about just how he’ll be seen?

Patreon microfiction: ‘Coileain Chumhacht.’

I knew once what the larger point of “Coileain Chumhacht” was, but it eludes me. I’m pretty sure that it had something to do with a Something Positive cartoon, though.  I think.

Patreon microfiction: “Emergency Repairs.”

Emergency Repairs” is… well, it’s a little goofy. But not zany or chipper. And it avoids gonzo because it’s a little too linear.

And another Patreon microfiction: “Beer Barrel Poker.”

And Beer Barrel Poker was the more normal one, that week.  Whatever ‘normal’ means, in this context.  Sometimes I don’t know, either.

My Patreon microfiction “Children of the Candy Corn.”

I more or less gave away “Children of the Candy Corn” for free on Patreon because I felt bad about being paid to flat-out trying to scare my Patrons.  It’s one thing when I’m being paid to write fiction, or I’m submitting it for publication. But to just have this come out of nowhere… well.

Patreon microfiction: ‘Canaries.’

Canaries‘ illustrates something that I’ve long thought: to wit, that folklore ascribes natural magical talent to a whole range of creatures who are, frankly, as dumb as posts. Have any of these people ever have cats? Show a cat a magical hovering flame and it’ll chase it right into the wall.

Patreon microfiction: “Listening for the Drum.”

The Drake legend fascinates me, basically.  “Listening for the Drum” is merely the latest iteration of that. Heck, there’s an entire campaign setting in there.

My Patreon microfiction “Curiosity.”

Curiosity” is just supposed to be… nice. Nothing more to it, really. Nothing more hopefully needed, either.

Patreon Microfiction: ‘Mission Statement.’

Mission Statement” examines a problem that any group with access to power must address: what do you do to keep down the number of jerks looking for access to that power?  This, I feel, is not addressed enough in modern fantasy. And when it is, it typically goes too far in the other direction and just gets rid of the jerks entirely. I feel that this is also not an optimal result.

Anyway…  Patreon!

My Patreon microfiction “Division of Labor.”

100ws-dol

“Division of Labor” would be longer, except that I pretty much have nothing more to say about it. …Nope, still got nothing more to say about it. Just one of those things, I reckon.

My Patreon microfiction “Dancing With Myself.”

I feel that “Dancing With Myself” addresses a particular social awkwardness in time travel that is not often addressed. What is it?  Read it, and see.

Hey, Patreon! Makes a great Christmas gift! …No, wait, that’s kind of crass.
