“Five Star Bathroom” – Microfiction, Humor, Travel

Original Image Made on Playground AI

“Mama snores like a chainsaw battling rocks. My sister and I retreat to the five-star hotel’s bathroom and close the door. I lay on a pile of blankets under the sink. My sister is by the tub. The snoring is now so faint it’s a lullaby.”

This microfiction of mine was published by Cuento Magazine. They publish prose and poetry under 280 characters on their twitter page.

What I wrote is based off a true story which took place about 12 years ago.

A Microfiction on Fibromyalgia

“The fibromyalgia burns through my skin. I lay crumpled up in bed, staring outside at an oak tree. Flowers blossom from mottled branches. A yellow warbler feeds her chicks in the gentle pitter patter of rain. The fire within me cools to a simmer.”

A Microfiction From the POV of a Space Monster

(Image made with Playground AI)

Movies like Alien, Event Horizon, and Pitch Black have popularized the Space Horror genre.

However, not enough literature or movies have shown space horror from the POV of the monster, in my humble opinion.

So I decided to attempt one and got it published on Black Hare Press. It’s a great website for creatives looking to submit drabbles, short stories, and novellas.

For those who don’t know what a drabble is, it’s a short fictional story around 100 words in length.
