These are word doodles. Word doodles are short*, barely-edited pieces of fiction, usually prompted by two random words given to me by my brother, who shall be henceforth known on this blog as “Q.” I have been writing these for several years and you can find seventy or so of them on my tumblr Firefly Waltz. All future word doodles will be posted in both this blog and my tumblr. *Except for when they mutate into short stories and rage out of control through the story universe, devouring small plot devices.
Sometimes you fail. What matters is that you get back up. Yes, like Spider-Man.
