1st Flash Fiction of 2021

I like the outdoors: hunting, fishing and just being out in nature. I also love campfires as they hit all of the senses to create such magic memories that last a lifetime. Here's an excerpt of the story: Campfire


There was only one left in the box in his hand, but that was all he needed. He could hear his dad’s old saying ringing in his ears, ‘If you can’t light it with one, then walk away and call yourself a failure.’ He couldn’t remember that ever happening, but the competition and the head games played between the family members was intense. Every advantage was used to put stress on one person to see if they rose to the occasion or not. It was all good-natured fun.
