Fiction Friday

[Fiction] Friday Challenge #176 for Oct 8th, 2010

Your Main Character is a time traveller. He/She arrives at a destination but not all is as expected….


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!

    Different perspective this week, continuing the Cuba story (and much shorter!)

    Who would’ve thought I could use this prompt for another extract from my novel? I had to adapt it to fit the prompt, but it’s basically a scene I wrote earlier in the week.

    If you thought the week went fast you are probably right. With this prompt you can extend the week, visit again indefinitely or avoid it completely. I’m sure there’s a paradox in there somewhere.
    Catch my twist here:

    I enjoyed working with the time travel story this week. I think I may be crossing over to the dark side. I’ll have to force myself to write a happy ending next week just to be sure I still can.

    My scrambled head finally came up with a short flash story…

    I started this story and then it just went diagonal. Not even sure it totally fits the prompt but its the story that asked to be written and I had so much fun doing it!

    After serveral weeks beta reading and editing for CYOA, I couldn’t resist adding my own little twist.

    Didn’t think I’d have time to get one in this week, but I managed to eek one out. Hop on over and join me as I wipe New York City off the face of the Earth.
