Flash Fiction

Welcome to my Flash Fiction page! The stories here are ones that I’ve timed myself while writing. I set my timers for either 20 minutes, 30 minutes, or 60 minutes. For a while I was doing 60 or 25 minutes, but that wasn’t quite working for me. I also found myself going back and reworking the stories for longer series. I actually turned the original Flash Fiction page into the Workshop where I had a few different versions of some things. I ended up abandoning Flash Fiction and the Workshop altogether.

Collect Your Regrets (Part 3 posted on Fridays)

A Flash Fiction Alternate History. This is a three part series inspired by Tania in which rewrites 2012 after the water crisis, answering the question: What if Jason hadn’t gone off the pier? It seeks to rewrite three terrible Elizabeth stories that took place between 2012-2016.

Part 1: Darkest Before the Dawn

Part 2: Shot in the Dark
Sam has been reunited with her son, Danny, and Jason and Elizabeth are starting a new chapter in their lives together, putting the past and the tragic loss of their son behind them. Then Laura comes over with startling news that changes everything.

Part 3: Scars
Set Fall 2016. Three years after being reunited with their son and getting married, Jason and Elizabeth have put the Cassadines in their past (as much as anyone every can). Elizabeth is happy to keep looking forward until one day she runs straight into the worst memory of her past — Tom Baker. He’s working at General Hospital as part of his work-release program. Elizabeth must fully confront the demons of her past before they destroy the future.




Signs of Life (Posted on Sundays)

A Flash Fiction Alternate History. Set in December 1999. Nikolas Cassadine has told the entire world that Jason and Elizabeth are sleeping together. What happens if the entire world, including Elizabeth’s friends and family and Jason’s enemies, take him seriously?


Sunday Rewrites

In this category, I will be writing short stories and single shots that take place during pieces of Liason history I haven’t written yet, like 1999-2001 or 2007, or even 2010-2012. These will be written on Sundays as Flash Fiction when the mood strikes. They will then be edited and distributed.

Story 1: The Ghost of the Girl

 
Set in 2001. Elizabeth is miserable as a model, and can’t understand why her boyfriend, Lucky, can’t seem to understand that.  She’s confused by his treatment, by her own growing feelings for another man, and why no one in her life seems to see her unhappiness. Revised & Expanded: The Ghost in the Girl
