[Fiction] Friday #165

July 23, 2010

Fiction Friday

Pick two established characters, either from your own work or others’. Now write the scene/story of their meeting.


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 using the hashtag  #fictionfriday afterwards.
  • 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 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!

    This was my favorite prompt and brought about my longest Fiction Friday contribution by far.

    I was somewhat hesitant about this prompt. A little afraid to approach the task of getting inside another author’s character’s head. Once I found a little inspiration it turned out to be very enjoyable. I ended up having the devil from “Young Goodman Brown” meet Stephen King’s “The Cat from Hell.” The whole idea kinda cracks me up.

    I wasn’t very excited about this prompt and almost just passed this week. Then, out of the blue, an idea came and thus a scene was born.

    I have really enjoyed reading the back story to a lot of people’s characters; it makes them even more real and makes me want to go and read all of the other stories these characters feature in.
