Signs of Life – Reposting & Editing

Update Link: Chapter 1 | Signs of Life Story Page

I finished this Flash Fiction series back in the summer, but haven’t had a chance to edit and repost here and at the archives where I post, and Archive of our Own. I’m going to be posting new chapters a few times a week. I do plan on adding a scene or two as I move through the edit, so feel free to reread 🙂 This should hold you guys over for a few weeks as I get back into a regular writing routine.

I’m mostly recovered from Covid — I’m really lucky that the worst of it only lasted a few days — I was really bad last Saturday with aches and chills and the fever. The congestion has lingered, as has the fatigue, but I’m grateful that I got vaccinated and boosted. I’m sure that helped it from getting worse. I remember when I ended up on my first quarantine back in the fall of 2020 — the level of anxiety was absolutely insane, and then going back into the classroom full time — oof. Now cut to a few years later, and it really was just a pretty bad flu.

But I literally did nothing for six days, and I’m absolutely slammed at work and tons of things around the house piled up, so I couldn’t get back to Flash Fiction this week. The plan is to be back on schedule next or week, or definitely by the first weekend in February.

I started to write at night last week, and did pretty good. I finished a Chapter of Fool Me Twice (will be posted tomorrow for Patreon perks), but I had a pretty bad headache and sinus congestion all day on Saturday that put me behind again. Frustrating, but working through it.


  • I’m so glad that you’re doing better. The most important thing is to take care of yourself. You have a lot on your plate. I’m glad that I just got the newest booster. Stay well and warm!

  • Glad you are feeling better! I agree with the comment above, take care of yourself. I should just say “ditto” but I also want to say, as always, thanks for writing what could’ve been. I am so grateful.
