This short, three part story evolved from what was intended to be a 500-word flash fiction piece. However, as I began writing, the protagonist (Artemis) and the world she inhabits (The Bleakness) grew. The words kept coming and, before I knew it, I’d written something that was bit too long for a typical Little Write Lies post. So I’ve split the story into three installments. Links will be added below as each piece goes live. I hope you enjoy this small taste of Artemis’ world.
