Martian Adventures on Wednesdays

When I started this crazy flash fiction project, I wasn’t planning on doing any serial stories, but when I was trying to come up with something for last Wednesday, two characters popped pretty much fully formed into my mind, and I wrote the scene where they met.  I’m going to continue writing about them on Wednesdays.  I’m hoping that each scene will stand on its own, but I’m not going to stress about it.  Writing so many stories is stressful enough on its own.  I was hoping to write stories a few weeks ahead of time, but that hasn’t happened yet.  In fact, things are getting more and more last minute.  I haven’t missed a deadline yet, though. 

Now back to writng a scene about Ronnie and Jim.  Tune in at midnight!
