Interview With Fall 2013 Flash Fiction Contest Third Place Winner, Kim Briggs Posted by Chynna at 8:49 AM I am very excited to have been the one to chat with our third place winner, Kim Briggs, in the 2013 Fall Flash Fiction Contest. Her gripping story, Deadly Cocktail, held me captive from beginning to end. And she’s got some wonderful insight and advice for you Young Adult/New Adult writers out there. If you haven’t read her story yet, check it out here then come on back for our interview. This is one you don’t want to miss!

It took Kim a double Bachelors, a Masters, three kids, and a house full of laundry before she realized what she really wanted to be when she grew up: a writer.

Kim finds time to write in the early mornings, late nights, and stolen moments throughout the day. She survives on soy chai lattes and dark ch…

HOT TOPICS: Drool at the Moon by Kim Briggs

The werewolf.


These terrifying creatures haunted our dreams every full moon. We locked our doors and slept with silver daggers. And who could blame us. I mean look at J.K. Rowling's version of the werewolf. Professor by day, monster by night.

But Werewolves have evolved into something a hell of a lot more scary, but in all the right ways. Modern victims crash into walls, drown in her own pool of drool, and commit random acts of insanity.

Sophomore Year: Best Year Ever! by Kim Briggs

Freshmen are new to high school. They have no idea what high school means and they're just trying to get through the day. Plus they still have traces of that hyperactive middle school-er who is still growing into their body.


Juniors know exactly what's expected of them and just how far they can push the limits without getting in trouble.


Seniors are done with the drama. They're counting the days to graduation.


Sophomores--Best Year Ever.

Thursday Rambles: A Tisket, A Tasket

Wednesday is hump day. Friday is fun day, but what is Thursday? It's the day of the week, that tires me out the most, especially this week. I stayed up way too late trying to get writing stuff done, nothing fun mind you, and then I found out the school scheduled me to work this Wednesday and Thurday--forgot to block the days out as Writing Days. Gross oversight on my part. I already blocked out next week:)


I can't wait until Thursday is over and I can veg out and watch my Thursday night shows--Vampire Diaries and Reign. Thursday nights have been my official TV nights since Cheers, Friends, Seinfeld...need I say more?!?!


Anyway, I LOVE to laugh. It makes me feel good and it makes me happy. Here's a few tidbits to get you through your Thursday.


This Quote makes me laugh every time I read it. I'm a geek, I know.
This quote explains why I defend my writing time with a pitchfork and a shovel.

And I leave you with this eye candy to get you through your Thursday. You're …
