Welcome, one and all!

If you are a dreamer, come in, 
If you are a wisher, a liar, 
A hoper, a pray-er, a magic-bean-buyer, 
If you're a pretender, come sit by my fire, 
For we have some flax-golden tales to spin

Shel Silverstein


Welcome to Wednesday Afternoon! Here, you’ll find flash fiction tales, tips and tricks for improving your own writing, and the lessons nobody told me about writing fiction, starting with, “If you think you’re writing junk, keep going. It’s practice, and you’ll thank yourself for it later”.

Whether you’re on the hunt for a new bit of fiction or hoping for a tidbit to help your stories, I can help you out. Wednesday Afternoon publishes on, well, Wednesdays in the afternoon, though there may be a bonus post here and there. Not many, though. I won’t overflow your inbox or anything, and if I do, feel free to unsubscribe because I probably deserve it.

Oh, and it’s free. When I was learning how to write, I didn’t have an extra cent to spend on new anything. I learned from library books and free posts on the internet, and now that I can do something, I’m giving it away for free. If you’d like to become a paid subscriber, bully for you and thank you! You’ll make a huge difference and supporting my work to help others who may not have the funds to give back yet. If not, I completely understand. May your money tree grow tall someday!

So, what are you waiting for? Come hang out and enjoy some words!

Once a week.

No more, no less. Wednesday Afternoon is just that - a delivery to your inbox on Wednesday afternoons. No extra kerfluffle, no cheap tricks to get your information. Just words about words, every week.


Stories and how-tos, absolutely free. If you want to, become a paid subscriber for the joy of supporting another writer. But don’t feel pressured into it.

Join the community!

It’s small, but mighty. If you’re looking for likeminded folks with a flair for dramatic word choices, you’ve come to the right place. Let’s get better together!

And send it to your friends!

Know somebody who might enjoy this, too? Send it to them! The more, the merrier! Of course they’re welcome, too!
