Fiction Friday

[Fiction] Friday Challenge #144 for February 26th, 2010

The bag was empty except for a smudged, slip of paper which said, “Sorry.”

How Fiction Friday works


Fiction Friday is easy to do.

  • Check this page for this week’s theme or challenge. Prompts are published each month to give you plenty of notice.
  • 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 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!

    Well, after last week’s faux pas of posting to the prompt one week early, here are my two drafts. Is that cheating to have done two? Nah, I’m sure it isn’t 🙂
    Looking forward to see what other gems people have thought up.

    Haven’t done these in a long time, but I suddenly had the urge:

    My first attempt at fiction in years. Glad to join you all for Fiction Friday – which I combined with Flash Friday… hope that is ok!

    I scribbled the below tale in my notebook last night then typed it up this evening. I had to fight my inner critic, who wanted to edit, and my muse, who wanted to add, while doing so.

    There’s definitely room for huge improvements and I welcome all critiques … as long as they’re disguised as praise. Just kidding! Though I do prefer constructive criticism to “You suck…Never write again” type crits.

    This is the first time I’ve EVER shared my stories outside of university or close friends and, I must admit, it’s scary.

    I posted mine a little late as I was out the house all day yesterday, still did it then though – on the tube. See my dedication 🙂

    In reading all the different posts, there are some that are the kernel of a longer piece, perhaps even a novel, while mine tend to be self contained pieces. Might have to work on leaving things open ended.
