I have something a little different for you this week. You've doubtless read about my excitement about Torn World. My #fridayflash story this week is one of their folk tales, and is illustrated by one of my paintings.

If you're interested in Torn World, I encourage you to take the time to log in; leaving a comment on a story at the website earns you karma there, which you can use for a number of things, including adopting a character or showing appreciation for writers or artists whose work you enjoy.  You can check out the details on the site, read other stories, check out the artwork (some of which is much better than mine!), and see the benefits of subscribing.

But I digress.  Without further ado, here is my story, behind a fake cut:

Skycat and Woodpecker Make a Bet

You can also comment here, of course, but it won't earn you any Torn World karma!

Am opening tabs fast before racing to work, just wanted to say the art piece for it is lovely!

Thank you!

I keep looking at it and picturing ways the Skycat could have looked cuter, if I'd posed it differently, but that's usually the way it is with your own work.

I really liked the story, very "Brear Rabbit" (spelling?) about it. :)

It's Brer Rabbit (since you asked).

Thanks for reading, and for popping back here to comment!

You're welcome. I usually leave them til I have a moment. This time it was a case of having a bad day and being glad I had a story to look forward to reading to give me a bit of a pick up.

Speaking of bad days and stories, I had an odd (and not very happifying) dream last night. I dreamt I saw you at a house. I can't remember why I was there and why you were there but I remember you needed money urgently. I had put $25 into your account but you needed to access it that day and I wasn't sure if it had cleared. You needed it for something urgent for your daughter, something time-sensitive like a gas bill or something like that I think.

I'd been thinking for the last few weeks of dropping a few coins in your hat but have been trying to be good and keep an eye on my spending. After that dream I couldn't help it, I had to and it kept me upset all day until I got home and could sit down and drop something in. I put in a bit more than I was going to, because I'd been thinking of maybe doing $20 but after the dream last night felt that I had to do a bit more than that.

I also had a dream about archery, it wasn't too bad but at the same time I couldn't do anything right in it so it was a bit distressing too. :( Here's hoping for better dreams tonight.

Wow, thank you!

I certainly do hope that you have better dreams tonight!

P.S. I'm almost done with a new chapter of Fireborn.
