Many apologies for the delay in getting this post out - a water pipe burst in our apartment complex yesterday, leaving us with no water (and thus no toilet usage! gah!) until this morning. As you can imagine, this scenario promptly made me forget that anything called a "blog" even existed.
So...double goodies for everyone today! I'll post Tuesday's regular flash fiction now, give you all some time to enjoy it, then post today's real post this afternoon (hint: it has to do with maps and treasure).
[EDIT: Osmosis has been taken down, along with its flash siblings, for
consideration in a print magazine. Thank you so much to those of you who
read it and left such wonderful comments!]
