My Best FridayPhrases Pieces of 2014

In 2014, Twitter came alive for me when I discovered word prompt games to inspire fiction, micro-fiction, micro-poetry, fun, and Twitter communities of like-minded creatives. (I wrote about this earlier this year).

Now, as 2014 comes to an end, I wanted to collect all my best pieces in one place, starting with my favourite compositions for FridayPhrases (known on Twitter by its short-hand hash-tag, #FP).

The Badlands Beyond

This piece was put together in response to a writing dare by @StoryBandit on Twitter, whose exact words were:

The dares don't say anything about using the words in the exact given order (thank goodness!) :-)
