One Minute to Midnight

What do you do when you’re lost and you’re stuck staring at a blank page? How do you find inspiration? What do you do when there’s one minute to midnight and you have nothing left to give? Do you admit defeat? Or do you sing Hunger at the top of your lungs? Do you stall,…

Gone

I’ve been having trouble expressing my thoughts today. I seem to have misplaced my words and all my ideas have gone missing. I’ve been working on a post that I’m really excited about, but it’s just not working. Everything’s all muddled and misshapen, nothing is clear. I get frustrated, because I know what I want…

Flash Fiction #4: Wait

This piece of flash fiction wasn’t inspired by The Magicians, but it definitely makes me think of it. It’s weird and wild. Plus, you know how much I love to add a hint of magic. HAPPY READING! 😀 See you tomorrow! For more Kim the FanGirl follow the blog on Twitter @kimthefangirl and on Facebook

One Month Blog Challenge Update

I’m doing a cheesy celebration dance right now and I’m glad you can’t see it. It’s totally embarrassing, but I had to break out my cool moves. I’ve, officially, written a blog post every day for a month! I’ve already used all the confetti and colorful, paper streamers to celebrate this milestone. In all honestly,…

When You’re A Writer

When you’re a writer . . . People look at you like you’re crazy. Any coworker, acquaintance, or stranger you tell your predilection to gets this strange look in their eye. Their brain has trouble processing. They don’t get it. They stare at you, blank. “Oh. Do you make money from that?” “Not really.” “Why…

Once Upon a Time, I Was a Poet

I was looking through my writing folder, searching for a few “works in progress,” when I randomly decided to click on the folder that said Poetry. I really wasn’t sure what I’d find. As I scrolled down the list, I noticed that the dates on the folders were more than a few years old. It…

Flash Fiction #2: A Sky Full of Song – Chapter 1

I woke up this morning and thought, “Hey, I want to write something fantastical. I should write some flash fiction.” As usual, it didn’t turn out exactly like I had planned. I tend to get a little overzealous when writing, so sticking to the parameters of flash fiction is difficult for me. So, I’m going…

Hello, It’s Me Again

I’ve never been very good at keeping New Year’s resolutions, especially ones that concern this blog. For the past few years or so, about three months before the new year begins, I say to myself, “Next year, I’m going to write more.” I even go so far as to set fairly realistic expectations for myself….

Flash Fiction #1: Cosmic Love

Flash fiction by definition means, “fiction that is extremely brief, typically only a few hundred words or fewer in its entirety.” There is something very intriguing about this. It’s a challenge. It’s the ultimate test for a writer, to make your reader feel something, learn something, or picture something in their mind, in as few…

The Decline of FanFiction

I was in high school when I first learned about fanfiction. My friend had showed me a six page story she’d written about *NSYNC and tried to explain the concept of writing original stories about celebrities and fictional characters to me. I honestly didn’t get it. Why write about well-known faces when you could create…
