Genre Scribes: Friday Fiction Writing Challenge 35 Bronze by Susan T Braithwaite

Today’s word didn’t lend itself to any immediate story ideas for previous characters, so I decided to start afresh with the introduction of a new character, Maddie. She feels like a character I’d like to spend some more time with–prompt words willing. 🧐

Genre Scribes: Friday Fiction Writing Challenge #34 — Celebration Susan T Braithwaite

This week I’m revisiting Amy and Kelvin (the airplane crash couple) from the challenge prompts damage and cookie. The scene takes place a day or two after the cookie one. Confession: I went a wee bit over on the word count by 100-ish words.

This week’s random word is: Celebration

Genre Scribes: Friday Fiction Writing Challenge #33 — Politics by Susan Braithwaite

The moment I saw the prompt word, last week’s characters popped into my head. This scene comes after they’ve had dinner together.

Email to a Friend

I’m going to deviate a bit from D65’s prompt for Day 5 of her 7 Posts 7 Days.
The prompt is: Write a letter to someone explaining your life right now.

It’s an excellent prompt, but I don’t have anyone I feel I need to explain my life to. Also, if it’s pertinent in my life right now, it’s on my Now page—no reason to repeat myself.

So, here’s the deviation bit. I’m going to have one of my characters write the letter (it’s an email, ‘cause he doesn’t do snail-mail).

The character is Ward Mitchell, the hero from my second Deniable Unit series. He’s responding to an email from his childhood (and former Army) buddy, Laughlin.

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.
