My good friend Teri over at IrrationalCat and I have been writing together for years. One of the things we like to do is write very short chapters, just a couple of hundred words, and fire it back to the the other. We write back and forth this way – creating a story organically. We don’t think about the plot, the characters, or direction ahead of time. It’s more of a writing exercise just to keep us writing than a true work of literature. Still, Flash Fiction can be a lot of fun.
A few years ago I stumbled on a mythical moon of Venus named Neith. It was seen for centuries by astronomers and ended up being nothing. But what if it were real? That’s the premise for this story. This story will be cross-posted on both sites, this one and Teri’s.
