Daylight Savings Time   November 9th, 2012

I had this quick idea for a scene. Daylight Savings Time always annoys me. Well the extra hour of sleep is nice, but sunset getting earlier as the days are short enough already, that’s the part I don’t like. So I imagined a conversation with someone who would appreciate it.

Mice Election   November 6th, 2012

In honor of election day in these United States tomorrow, here is an older piece of flash fiction I wrote during another election, that one a hard-fought mid-season race. It was a retelling of a joke I’d read on a usenet forum years before, which I then learned was inspired by the classic political fable Mouseland.

The illustration was done by the talented artist SynnabarThere is also an audio version of the story.

So make sure to get out and vote tomorrow, no matter which cat you’re casting the ballot for.

I was inspired of writing this bit of fiction like a grade-school science report while driving home from a Jonathan Coulton concert and listening to more of his music in the car. This wasn’t inspired by any song in particular, just the overall geeky milieu. I wanted to throw a reference to the ninja site, Real Ultimate Power in there too. Ultimately this isn’t as funny as I’d hoped it could be, but it’s kind of cute and was fun and a decent exercise for NaNoWriMo.

I  thought of this idea while re-watching the the movie Jurassic Park with friends. It goes back to an oft done joke about how powerful tyrannosaurus rex dinosaurs were, but with one obvious physical deficiency. I joked how T Rex porn would highlight that and how it would be subversive and scary to society and they would make movies like Refer Madness about the problem.

I haven’t done any real writing for a few years, so I’m rusty. This may be a little clunky and not as funny as I’d originally hoped, but I like the idea and it’s good to be writing again.
