Angling Fiction

3-line flash fiction for 3LineTales

Angling was a means to get away from his day-to-day grind; he kept their images in his mobile device.

The predator used a pole to make it real, catching targets at a steal.

He then ate his prey, but no one knew; he boiled the bones in a brew and tossed them in the bay.

Best-Laid Plans

Sometimes Need Change

catch inspiration and commence
efficiency of excitement
carries you through, around rough starts
it’s never much to begin with
makes you think it’ll be easy
while you go in with confidence
of your quick-thinking summations
under false impressions of ease  
until you realize that spark
was the start of a burning flame
resistant to offhand douses
meant no less than to entertain


Inspired form of “the best laid plans of mice and men often go awry”, translated from Scots “The best laid schemes o’ Mice an’ Men, / Gang aft agley,” from To A Mouse, On Turning Her Up In Her Nest With The Plough by Robert Burns
-Wiktionary

Artists On The Fly

artists take any opportunity
their spark is our reward
we earn upon sight; ever wonder
who did that thing; ever smile
when you see writing
author unknown, intriguing
where they were then
where they are now
understand, wherever it is
they’re contemplating
their next work
