Genre Scribes: Friday Fiction Writing Challenge #31 — Cookie

Welcome to #31 of the Friday Fiction Writing Challenge! Here’s a complete list of all the posts so far. Feel free to join in.

Quick thanks to Chris and Gordon for taking part and sharing their awesome responses to last week’s prompt. Great work, guys!

This week’s word was a toughie. Every time I tried to come up with something, my mind kept dragging me back to the characters from my response to the Damage prompt. Instead of continuing to fight it, I decided to revisit Kelvin and Amy after they left their downed aircraft.

This week’s random word is: Cookie

It’s been a busy week or so (read: super busy) and I’ve had little-to-no time for writing. Hopefully, things will calm down before next week and I can get back to word herding. Before we get into the post, I’d like to say a quick thanks to those who posted their responses to last week’s prompt—I’ll catch up with your posts this weekend.

Welcome #21 of Things in Scots!—a fun collaboration with my husband, Jez (Mind an gie Jez’s post a keek.)

It’s the last day of the year, and all over the world, people are marking 2019’s end. We couldn’t end the year without one of the most famous words in the Scots Leid.

Today’s Things in Scots is: Hogmanay.

Things in Scots #21: Yule

Welcome #21 of Things in Scots!—a fun collaboration with my husband, Jez (Mind an gie Jez’s festive post a keek.)

Today’s Things in Scots is: Yule.

Things in Scots #20: Dauner

Welcome to post twenty of Things in Scots!—a fun collaboration with my husband, Jez (Mind an gie Jez’s post a keek.)

A quick announcement, and then we’ll get straight back to the post. With 2019 screaming to an end and all the craziness that goes with it, Jez and I will only be able to post to Things in Scots sporadically for the rest of this month. But—you had to know there was a but coming—because we’ve had so much fun sharing the Scots language with you, we’ve decided to continue the series into 2020 with weekly posts (mostly).

And, back to the post.
