Fiction Friday

[Fiction] Friday Challenge #162 for July 2nd, 2010

Write about a man with an impossibly bad streak of luck on his birthdays, who, as his 40th birthday approaches, is scared of what might happen.”


How Fiction Friday works

It’s 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..
  • If you utilise social networking, Tweet your story using our hashtag of #fictionfriday AND post it up onto Facebook.
  • Then come back to Write Anything and leave the link in the comment section below.
  • You may also like to Tweet other peoples links from this site as they are posted – and don’t forget to use our hashtag of #fictionfriday
  • To participate further, just go visit some of the other links left by other participants, read what they wrote, and leave a comment. Just be sure that your comment is constructive—this is, after all, a meme to give us all a little writing practice.
  • You may also like to Tweet other peoples links from this site as they are posted – and don’t forget to use our hashtag of #fictionfriday

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!

    Thanks Annie for a birthday related prompt so close to my big day. I just hope it doesn’t turn out the way it does for Paul in my story!!

    There are some really nice entries this week. I didn’t think I’d get to participate, but managed to scribble something out quickly this morning:

    I didn’t think I’d get to participate either. Work on my new (to me) boat is taking up more time than I have budgeted. I typed mine out, got online, uploaded it, and sent the link all in thirty minutes today during lunch.

    My first attempt at a Flash Fiction piece. My subject matter is nautical of which I know not a thing – so my heart sunk when I realise I’ve posted directly after a boat builder. D’oh!

    Stumbled across WriteAnything when searching for blogs that are related to creative writing. This is really awesome.😀

    My first go at it – http://teemeiyii.wordpress.com/2010/07/03/fiction-friday-162/

    A spoof after I had a chunk of dialoge fall into my head after my Sunday morning shower. probably a bit sad and pathetic… but it was their story to tell.
