Genre Scribes: Friday Fiction Writing Challenge #38 — Catalogue

Welcome to #38 of the Friday Fiction Writing Challenge! Here’s a complete list of all the posts so far. Feel free to join in.

I decided to challenge myself this week. No matter what the word, I was to write another installment of Amy and Kelvin’s story. It wasn’t the easiest word to work with, but I managed to get there in the end.

This snippet picks up right where we left them last week. Again, I went over the word count—I’m going to review the limit in the next couple of weeks. (Here’s a page with all their story links, in order.)

Before getting into the meat of the post, I have to say a huge thank you to my wonderful husband, Jez, for taking the time to create the featured image for this post. 😘

While I’m in the shout out mood, a big thanks to Chris for sharing her response to last week’s prompt. Check out her site, you will be entertained.

Genre Scribes: Friday Fiction Writing Challenge #37 — Nomination

Blood oozed from the wound at Kelvin’s side as he pulled himself back over the lip of the cliff. The male-model-looking Consortium operative had impressive knife skills but lacked in the common sense department.

Woohoo! Amy and Kelvin’s story continues in today’s post. (Here’s where we left them last time.) A quick word of warning, as the story grows, as does the word count of each mini-scene/sequence. It’s not too crazy, it sits under 500 words, so it’s still a quick read.

This week’s random word is: Nomination

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

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.

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

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

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.
