[Fiction] Friday #72

September 12, 2008

Fiction Friday

[Fiction] Friday Challenge for September 12, 2008:

Stranger in a Strange Land

Pick a small, inexpensive toy from your childhood. Now give it to someone from a foreign (or alien) culture. What do they do with it?

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!

    A shiny visitor has an unfortunate run-in with a talkative kid… read on here. Had fun with the talkative kid, no idea where she came from, LoL!!

    This is a world that came to me yesterday, and I’m interested in exploring it and the characters more. Crazily enough after knowing what I wanted to write about all year for NaNo … I’m wondering if the Universe has gifted me a whole new story. I’ll see what the feedback is from this tiny little snippet.

    Can a sci-fi story also be a love story?

    It’s been a while, but hope this touches a nerve!

    I think I got more focused on the ‘culture’ and not the toy. :-/

    wow! I actually made a post on a Friday. Here’s my contribution, a gift to a stranger that is more about the mysterious meaning about the act of giving than the gift itself (with a twist).

    Well, here’s mine. A little late, but still on Friday! I hope it is enjoyable:
