Fiction Friday

[Fiction] Friday Challenge for April 24th, 2009:

During her first trip to Las Vegas, a woman experiences the luckiest night of her life. (It’s not from gambling).

(Don’t forget to leave your link in the Mr. Linky script below! I convert them into permanent links later which get picked up by Google and Technorati!)

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!

    I just wanted to clear up a misconception that many of the newer writers are having with FF. Its about allowing the pen ( or fingers) to flow, no editing , rewriting, reading back and editing again – and finding you have only written 2 sentences in an hour.
    FF is about getting the blood on the page – getting the story out…. and not stopping to edit or correct spelling mistakes or grammatical errors.

    The prompt asks that you spend at least 5 minutes composing something original based on the theme or challenge…. not that the story will take only five mins to write from start to finish.

    I thought I’d bring this up as many comments exclaim how they are in wonder of how the writer can type so quickly – or get so much story done in 5 mins.

    Late as always, I’ll do a round of reading tonight – good to see so many new people taking part!
