Welcome to Straeon Manor. Together, our writers are building this house room by room.
This week, we’re trying something new at the Cafe for our monthly confabulation. Instead of merely giving our writers a prompt for their usual flash fiction of 1,000 words, we decided to really challenge them to do something grand.
Our writers have been asked to imagine a year and to pick one of its rooms. The stories they tell will all become part of the house’s history.
Here you will here stories of wartime and of peace. Of love, jealousy, mystery and madness. You will discover murder and horrors beyond belief, but also wondrous moments of beauty.
And because of the special nature of these stories, we’re removing our 1,000-word limit on stories. Our writers can write as little or as much as necessary to tell their tales.
Join us as we visit (and revisit) this special house. It is an old house, but no one is sure how old it is. It’s filled with mysteries, and together we will discover what some of those mysteries are.
