[Fiction] Friday #71

September 5, 2008

Fiction Friday

[Fiction] Friday Challenge for September 5, 2008:

Quick Change

Pick a book of fiction you’d never read (e.g., if you read sci-fi, pick a romance). Open to a random page and read the last couple paragraphs of the page. DO NOT TURN THE PAGE. Now continue writing the story. Feel free to change the genre as you write.

How Fiction Friday works
Fiction Friday is easy to do.

  • Every Thursday, just check this page for this week’s theme or challenge.
  • Spend at least 5 minutes composing something original based on the theme or challenge.
  • But, remember, no editing. This is to inspire creativity not stifle it.
  • On Friday, simply post what you wrote to your own blog.
  • Then come back to Write Anything and leave the link in the comment section below.

If you’re participating in the Write Anything meme, please leave a link to your entry in the box below. (If you’re not participating, please don’t leave a link. People who aren’t playing will be removed). Please don’t forget to leave us a comment in addition to leaving a link!

    At the risk of becoming terribly, terribly predictable, I have taken some chick-lit, and taken it in the usual directions I tend to veer towards – dark secrets, murky pasts, threats of violence, that kind of thing… 😉

    Thought I’d try a haibun since my prompt was from a Japanese cookbook.
