Fiction Friday

[Fiction] Friday Challenge #181 for Nov 12th, 2010

Utilise the T.S.O.D – a NaNoWriMo tradition. The rules are simple. In your story,  kill somone. With a shovel. Read more F.A.Qs here.


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!

    6:00 A.M. and I’m the first? Really?
    Is anybody participating this week? 🙂

    I tried my hand at continuing my previous Fiction Friday story with this week’s prompt – the first time I’ve ever even attempted it. Let me know what you think.

    Hehe, no John you’re not alone, it is 10pm here and after submitting a massive uni assignment I have managed to squeeze in a little TSOD. Check it out here- As usual it is an exploration of our favourite (well mine anyway) spy girl Jax.

    Hi all,

    This is my first time participating in Fiction Friday. Still fumbling my way through the ins and outs. Hope the Permalink works, but if not, here is another link to my story:

    Hi again,

    The permalink seems to be go directly to my other NON-related blog. So, please use the link provided until I figure out how to fix the Permalink. Apologies.

    I just love it when you ask us to kill people.

    I managed to weasel in a death by shovel on Saturday during the Write-In. Given its 1852 and the gold fields – death by shovel was totally doable… and had the character to do it to. Good riddance Lucien Farrow. First death for NaNo and no remorse over it at all…

    Link to come later… as I’m posting things up bit by bit.
