Monocle with gilded flourishes laying on an open book

The Guilded Monocle

stories, fancies, fantasies and otherwise

Welcome to the Guilded Monocle. A growing compendium of stories from budding storytellers. We've been vicariously innocent since 19... something or other. As star crossed friends for over ten years, Adriana and Lena decided writing romance and fantasy stories was a great way to stay in touch during the pandemic. (We've also stretched our fingers and brains a bit into other genres.) We hope to make you smile, laugh, and think.

Micro Fiction

Micro fiction stories of 100, 250, and 500 words or so. These were started by NYC Midnight challenges, and then we've continued a few on our own.

Short Stories

Uhm this is exactly what you think. Short stories:)


Blog posts about inspiration, software, book reviews and other things that take up most of our time and brain power. 

We promise we will only send updates for new templates or if one of us finally publishes a book.
(We are busy--Lena, and a bit lazy- Adriana).
