FFM 2020 is behind us already. Even though my decision to post only on WordPress cut the number of comments I received drastically, I still had a good time and got some fantastic learning experiences, as I focused on writing the best stories I could. In the end, the results weren't as great as I'd hoped, but I overall created stories I am proud of and which I'll be happy to publish in a collection. I definitely did better than last year both wordcount- and quality-wise!

The hooligan gang was hollering below, completely unaware that their usual hanging spot was full of bombs.
FFM 2020 25: A Webby Carnival
The carnival is always the highlight of my year. When there is more than one, they are the highlights — the more, the merrier!
FFM 2020 24: Bad Contract
Shade stared at the words in front of her. The contract was full of holes filled with clauses in small print at the edges of the paper.
FFM 2020 23: Deadly Discovery
The book, titled Discordance, is badly damaged — torn, dripping wet and charred — but you open it to read it anyway. You need to know what your lover was hiding, what possibly could have made them fight like a banshee for keeping it a secret when they had told there were no secrets between them ever, what even is going on here anymore.
