Every week we post six lines from a work of ours, a work-in-progress or published, or a recommendation of someone else’s work with at least one LGBT character. Posted at Rainbow Snippets here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/963484217054974
It’s actually cooling down here this week, so here’s a story I wrote in the heat of the summer a couple of months ago. A flat-out homage to one of my favorite fantasy writers—can you guess which one? Here’s a link to my original story: https://authorjeffbaker.com/2022/08/26/sixteen-things-i-learned-during-the-big-heat-wave-cool-off-with-friday-flash-fics-for-august-26-2022-by-jeff-baker/ I did this story in the form of a list, by the way, and called it “Sixteen Things I Learned During the Big Heat Wave.”
8.) Sometimes, when you haul a can of gasoline upstairs to the Spanish doctor guy your Aunt rents the room to, you find he’s kind of hot, too.
9.) Some people are crazy enough to have their own gas-powered air-conditioner in their room to keep their room really, really cool. But sane enough to pipe the exhaust outside.
12) Be honest about your inability to fix a broken air-conditioner, especially a jury-rigged air-conditioner with the guy in the bathroom swearing in Spanish.
13.) When your Aunt offers you money to go get a lot of ice, say yes.
14.) Strange doctor disappears from your Aunt’s apartment, play dumb when the police come over.
That’s it for this week! Stay cool!
I like the lists a lot
