[Fiction] Friday #167

August 6, 2010

Fiction Friday
[Fiction] Friday prompt #167 for 6th August, 2010

Strains of Bobby McFerrin’s “Don’t Worry Be Happy” floated into the room.


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!

    First off the mark! I was a bit hesitant about my idea for this week, but I think I kept it open enough not to go back on what I did last week!

    I started this twice with different characters – both from my novel. I hope it worked quite well to introduce Dan to the world.

    Stacey, I can’t comment on your story – is there a problem with Blogger? I couldn’t comment on someone’s page yesterday too??

    I wanted something light hearted and fun this week. That led to a peek into the life of Milton and Martha.

    This is my first time trying the Fiction Friday challenge–I have been reading Shelli’s and thought I’d give it a try. I’m not sure how to use the Mr. Linky, so I’ll just post the address and hope it works.

    This was fun but couldn’t come up with much of a twist. I might have to work on building a twist to it later. http://terryhaferkamp.squarespace.com/the-cure-for-depression/

    Hey peoples, I am stuck in the midst of marking exam papers (the joys of being a teacher) so I will be a little delayed in getting to read and comment on your work, but I will get there. I promise.

    I can’t classify mine as a full on short this week. It’s a real quickie at the moment, but good to get away from writing essays.
