The check is in the mail.

This is freakin’ hilarious. As you all know, I’ve been helping Mother at her condo and also taking her out for errands and such. She’s trying to organize her living space, and often she’ll give me small stuff that she doesn’t want. Most recently it was a conch shell. I thought it was pretty, butContinue reading “The check is in the mail.”

Fun with flash fiction for NYC Midnight!

This must be my third blog post today. One for the record books! The purpose of this blog post is to share my flash fiction story that I wrote for the competition at NYC Midnight over the weekend! Special thanks to Ashley Leia and Emilia who beta read for me, and if anyone else wantsContinue reading “Fun with flash fiction for NYC Midnight!”

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!”

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!”

Help! I am trapped in the bathroom!

Well, today’s the day of the contest for 250 words, and I’ve written my story. (I can’t post it here for a few days, as per contest rules, but if anyone wants to read it sooner or offer me last minute beta-reading feedback [we’ve still got five hours!], definitely let me know!) To those ofContinue reading “Help! I am trapped in the bathroom!”

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.”

Adjustments are painful!

So, doing intermittent fasting has been hard! My body’s used to constant snack food during the entire period of time that I’m awake each day. I’ve realized I need to overhaul how often and when I eat. What I eat is mostly okay, although not perfect, but I don’t have any health issues like highContinue reading “Adjustments are painful!”
