Flash Fiction Delayed Today – Power Outages

Hey! Dropping a quick note to let you guys know Flash Fiction IS coming today, but we’re having really weird power issues in my area right now. It’s been since 7:30 AM — every 20-30 minutes, the power just blinks out, and it went out about five minutes into starting Flash Fiction today, so I’m just going to wait until I get something from the electric company. I’m lucky — I use Google Docs and Scrivener which both auto save, so I can just keep working, but Flash Fiction is supposed to be timed, and it takes about 2 minutes to reload the computer, another 2 minutes for the internet to come back — so it ends up eating time.

There’s no Phillies game today, so I can pretty much pick whatever time I want to write, so here are the next two windows for Flash Fiction:

  • If my power is on and reliable by noon, I’ll start at 1 PM and post at 2 PM.
  • If it’s not reliable until 3PM – 4 PM, I’ll start at 5 PM and post at 6 PM.

If I haven’t posted by 2 PM or 6 PM (EST), then I won’t be updating at all today. Hopefully it gets cleared up and fixed asap.


  • Take your time.

  • No worries! It’s all good.
