My Fudge Up Story #1

It’s been a long time since I have written anything on my blog, but it doesn’t mean I haven’t been thinking about it. In fact, I have been searching for the ‘right’ direction of this blog since I started it last year. I like posting the occasional cake recipe, review or story, but I felt I needed some ‘anchor,’ something that would be my thing. And I think I have finally found it. Inspired by FuckUp Nights movement, I have decided to start writing ‘My Fudge Up Stories’ about all the entertaining failures of my life (and believe me, there are quite a few of those). And no, it won’t be anything work-related or something, it’s just about me being human and screwing up sometimes. I also plan to write at least one fudge up story per month, and maybe develop some kind of writing habit around it (at least, I will try my best).

Short story: Super Bright

At the beginning of April, I participated in the SCI-FI-LONDON 48hr Flash Fiction Challenge. It’s basically a competition where you need to write a short story of 2000 words in about 48 hours. It has to be a sci-fi themed story, and the organizers provide you with a title and a dialogue line that you must integrate into the story. You also get a science fact (or something the organizers call a ‘science fact’) that you can also use for the story if you like. Well, I don’t really know what devil led me to sign up for this challenge as sci-fi genre is a bit outside my comfort zone (I did prepare a bit by reading and watching some stuff) and I am a total novice at writing fiction of any kind. But I’m glad that I did because it was thoroughly interesting experience: from the moment I read my story title till the last minutes before submission when I couldn’t care less about my commas and wording. You can find the winners (or the well written stories) on the SFL Awards 2017 page, but read on to check-out mine! Continue reading “Short story: Super Bright”
