Fun times all around!

In an hour I’ll be taking my dad to the airport. I’m a bit anxious about it. Apparently he wants to keep his cigars stored in his carry-on bag. Hopefully he won’t try to light one on the flight. I can see it now. “Flight 229 has crashed after a careless passenger apparently tried toContinue reading “Fun times all around!”

Let’s rock this!

Sanity has tenuously been restored in an insane mind, and I feel oddly good about communicating with Nate. I just feel bad that I was so… all over the place in my message. The truth is that I feel awful about what I’ve put him through, often to the point that I want to actuallyContinue reading “Let’s rock this!”

Escaping Pandora

This is my story for NYC Midnight’s short story competition, round 1. To those of you who helped me make it better, thanks!! 🙂 The assignment was to write a short story (2,500 words or less) in the mystery genre, including a soldier, and involving a prediction.

I hate NYC Midnight!

Don’t panic, but I’m angry. Large Flatulent Marge, my irate alter ego, has taken temporary (I hope) possession of me. I can tell she’s here because my head is buzzing with hot air and I want to throttle some poor, unsuspecting citizen. (No one’s nearby, so… that’s good.) I didn’t make it to the finalsContinue reading “I hate NYC Midnight!”

Wild times.

So, I have a lot to report here, actually. Let’s see if I can remember all of it… First of all, I didn’t win the 3-day novella event. However, I made the top 10. But keep in mind that only fifteen people total entered. So, that’s the top 2/3, but geez. Then the top fourContinue reading “Wild times.”

My short story!

Hey guys! I can’t share my story over at the forum because it’s gone to hell, so I figured I’d share it here! This is © Meg Kimball, 2020. My assignment was to write a 1,000-word story taking place at a newsstand with the genre of historical fiction and the inclusion of a parking meter.Continue reading “My short story!”

Flippy flip!

Hi everyone!! Here I am. I’ve been working hard on my flash-fiction story all weekend. I’ve already submitted it at this point, but I still have over four hours if I want to make alterations and resubmit. I’d like to thank all of my beta readers!! (Note to Ashley Leia: I researched the flip-phone thing,Continue reading “Flippy flip!”

Building Team Meg!

Oh. My. Gosh. Um, whoa. First off, I spent all day rearranging my furniture and cleaning my room at the same time. Doing one makes it easier to do the other. During my computer time, though, I didn’t even try to work on my memoir. With all the excitement of waiting for contest results, IContinue reading “Building Team Meg!”

… the agony of defeat.

So, there’s bad news and there’s bad news. I’ll start with the bad news. I had a 25% chance of winning a contest with last year’s 3-day novella, because I was in a contest that four people submitted last year’s novel to. If coming in fourth would be worst, what would second-worst be? Coming inContinue reading “… the agony of defeat.”

Great news! And misery.

It’s been a hard few days (yesterday and so far today) for reasons that I’m sure are temporary. Yesterday, I was an agitated mess, because: I couldn’t work on my woodworking. I’ve got some items coming from Amazon later today, and not yet having them ground the project to a halt. I was waiting allContinue reading “Great news! And misery.”
