Boston Ivy, a flash fiction story by me!

Ever take time to notice how the ivy grows outside your door? Take a look, but be prepared for what you might see.

In addition to reading tons of books and writing about them, I do occasionally write a bit of my own stuff, like that piece of flash fiction linked above and recently published in Flash Fiction Magazine. This story started out as a writing exercise in a science essay and memoirs class. The prompt was go outside and find some piece of nature, spend a few minutes writing about what you observe, and then see where it takes you. For me, it took me to some dark places indeed.

How typical!
