It’s weird how sometimes big things start with something so small that you wouldn’t notice it if you were in a hurry.
My name is Adam Flynn and I am on a quest for something I have never seen, but I know now must be out there. Logically, it’s a hopeless quest, like looking for your lost ring in the whole Pacific ocean. Still, gotta try, right?
It all started when I bought a jar of change at auction. I bought it for the jar, not the coins, since it was a unique shape and my sister collects jars. I figured I could resell the coins if any of them turned out to be valuable.
I brought the jar home and managed to get the lid off—it was glued on for some reason—and dumped the coins out onto the bed and started to put them into piles. I glanced at the dates of some of them, if I thought they looked especially old.
I picked one up, saw it started with 20- and dropped it on the bed until my mind caught up with what I’d seen. I picked it up again and felt a chill go down my back. The date on the coin was 2016. The date today is January 23, 2013. The coin wasn’t even new; it was scratched and worn, like it had been in circulation for a long time. I can’t explain this, but I want to find out more.
Let me know if you see anything like that.

wow, you have a wicked imagination. Its great how you take such simple things and give them a twist to make them interesting. Now I want to hear more of this story.

Thank you so much~ I might write more on it. I have some thoughts on it.

I really like how your able to write short stories in just a paragraph or two. I always struggle to keep my tales from becoming 6 pages long

It’s definitely something I’ve had to practice since starting this blog. I prefer to write longer things, since you can develop characters and situations more. Often I’ll start out with something short and it will grow and grow until I have to break into multiple posts.

I’ve found that if its too long people will pass over it and not read it. That’s why I’ve been breaking down the Atlantis story, I would rather post it by whole chapters but I know no one is going to read 11 page chapters.
January 24th, 2013 at 2:11 pm
Yeah, that’s what I found too. I feel like it’s a tension between having it read and being true to your vision of things.
January 24th, 2013 at 2:28 pm
yes I think it can be. I think the key is not to take your blogging too seriously. Once you do it stops being fun.
January 24th, 2013 at 2:58 pm
true. It is just for fun after all. At least I’m not getting any money for it 🙂

I keep meaning to ask you, are you published?
January 25th, 2013 at 10:03 am
No, just some self-publishing a few years ago. It’s the goal I’ve been working towards for the last few years. Hopefully this year something will happen. 🙂

yay! I wish you the best, if you succeed don’t get so famous that you forget to blog for us simple folk lol

This story is a treasure chest. I love how you used something as plain as a coin to make something so eerie. Wonderful 🙂
January 24th, 2013 at 10:04 am
Thank you! That would be eerie. What would you do if you found a coin from the future?
January 27th, 2013 at 12:06 am
I’ll probably cry (I don’t know why I cry at eerie things, LOL). Analyze it if my humble brain can. When madness persists, consult the local sorcerer.
Aaaah it’s forever disconcerting.

Oh no, not you too…. 😉

When we reach into something, are we crossing dimensions – just for a fleeting moment – I wonder.
January 24th, 2013 at 2:34 pm

January 24th, 2013 at 2:59 pm
I was planning on it, but I definitely will now 🙂

Interesting story. I have collected coins even when adult.
Coins can also be used to help the poor or what do You think when reading my post
