Flash Stories


Danielle Tauscher

"Writer. Coffee drinker. Master of the shin-kick. I write about dead things and kissing, but not kissing dead things."

"The Tree of Oceton"

"In the forest deep, there was a tree, sitting lonely. Hollow, indeed.
On its crown there sat a chest, full of jewelry, so he said.
On its branches there was nothing but hushing echoes of swinging cries.
And down the trunk, there you would find, the face of Oceton frozen in time."

"Rice for the Birds"


"She hates him. If she could get rid of him—she has already tried everything. He knows every way there is to kill a man. He has protected himself."

"It is said that two heads are better than one. Most likely, there are times when two heads would be more of a nuisance than a blessing, especially if they were attached to one body. In fact, it doesn't seem like anything at all would get accomplished if two heads were trying to control one body. That would probably result in a lot of fighting and aggravation, and little or no writing.
Luckily, though, we are two heads with two separate bodies, joined only by our ideas. In our case, that combination works beautifully."


This began with Elise Valente and me talking about something completely away from the topic of ghosts! I have NO idea how we shifted to this topic. The point is that in the end, I told Elena Jacob if we could use her blog, and she said yes. Yes, that's how eight (I think) other fellow writers, and me, wrote a ghost flash story for the fun of it. Check out mine, and also every other in the event! You'll love them!
Oh, mine is about...I don't know. I know, but I'll allow you to tell me!

"Broken Journey"

"Darvin had never roamed into the dark before, but he knew it was inevitable. Every night he came back to bed, the book called for him to touch it. It wasn't an old, robust book; it was actually new, untouched, unread, virgin. That all would change soon; Darvin was willing to read it; willing to suffer. He knew he had to finish reading once seeing even the first word; he was familiar with the consequences all quitters faced. He felt brave. However, he had always been, and forever would continue to be a coward."

I do not remember how the talk about this paranormal/urban fantasy flash story began, I just know it was due on Sunday.
Sunday came and I didn't even have a line written. I began writing and Elise waited for me, for more than an hour to turn it in, after the due date had past. Other fellow writers wrote one too, don't forget to check theirs our, too!
This was very fun because I had no idea of what to write; when I began, the ideas just came to me like the shadows in the story.
This flash story is about a cat who is in love with the moon. The "shadows" chase him, but that's just symbolic. Unfortunately, the moon doesn't love him back.
Or does she...?

"The Howling Cat"

"I know I should run faster, but having four legs to haul is not always easy. My heart beats too fast to be normal. I look at the sky as the moon hides behind a clan of scared clouds; she’s scared of me. I like to think I’m scared myself; running away in my last attempt to get more time in this world. Time—funny word when you know the meaning. My time is now. They have come for me. They chase me; the shadows. I know I must die, but not without one last fight."

"YA urban fantasy writer. Working on my 1st novel, SIREN SUICIDES."


I read one Tweet from her asking who wanted to write a flash story in 40 minutes to post on her blog. I had NEVER done a flash story, and certainly not in 40 minutes. I replied saying I was in. My first time, I was sure it was going to be fun. And fun it was. One (1) hour later, I finished a 500-word flash story about a siren who was a zombie, but wanted to be a human. Or was she a vampire?

Go ahead and check my first ever flash story, written in one hour. And check out the stories written by my other friend writers, too! You'll find them. I'm number 5, so, you get the idea.

"Zombie or Siren"

"I’d like to think of myself as a human, but that’s a sin in the eyes of my mother."
