Fiction Friday

[Fiction] Friday Challenge for May 29th, 2009:

Choose one of the following (or both!)

Put this into your story – “Time out! Time out! We can call that, right?”

OR: write a poem from this image – A fallen star.


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!

    Thanks for another stimulating challenge, Fiction Friday always throws out some interesting ideas.

    After an intial cringe at the idea of having to write about sport … I got a flash igniting a few ideas I had been carrying around for ages … and got to hold my promise to some friends I would write about roller derby.

    James – your story rocks!

    Thiss was fun to write, although I’m so not into sports that I twisted it a bit. So here’s mine: http://mdbenoit.com/blog/2009/05/29/fiction-fridaytime-out/

    This was very scary for me. I’m not used to showing the first draft to anyone. However, doing the poetry instead of the story seemed less scary because I have lower expectations of myself.

    Thank you for hosting this task. Though I was scared at first, I had a lot of fun. It definitely got my creative juices flowing.

    Ha ha – I love this! I love the fact we are all so different in our perceptions and many immediately saw the prompt as sports orientated. I hadn’t even though of that till I saw some of your comments. Time Out for me is two things – a teaching tool for withdrawal of disruptive students – many schools I worked in had time out rooms or spaces – and a dramatic tool for characterization derolling …its an acting thing.. I went with the spirit of the latter for my story, naming a specific ‘mysterious’ ritual or understanding.

    oh and I do read everyones – I often have problems posting my comments on blogs – especially Williams -which really frustrated me as I like to give constructive feedback.
