Genre Scribes #48 — Path

Welcome to #48 of 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 (and fun) fortnight–working flat out on Working the Asset–but I’m so happy to have a wee break so I can catch up with Amy and Kelvin.

Genre Scribes #47 — Title

Welcome to #47 of the Friday Fiction Writing Challenge! Here’s a complete list of all the posts so far. Feel free to join in.

Guess what? It’s Genre Scribes’s 1st anniversary! Fifty-two weeks ago today, I gathered up all my courage and posted my first response of the challenge.

I started Genre Scribes as a way to show potential readers my style, and to force myself to post regularly and consistently—I’ve had multiple blogs over the last fifteen years and never got beyond ten posts on any of them.

Over the weeks, other writers have joined in and graciously shared their work. One of the challenge’s unforseen benefits has been to introduce me to Chris Hall, a wonderful writer whose responses to each prompt are magickal. So, when you’ve finished reading this post, go have a read of Alys and Sparky’s adventures over on luna’s on line.

I don’t think I’d have managed to keep the momentum going if I hadn’t found Amy and Kelvin. Their story has captured me to the point that I can’t stop until I hit THE END.

With that in mind, let’s get back to Amy and Kelvin.

Genre Scribes #46 — Eagle

Welcome to #46 of the Friday Saturday Fiction Writing Challenge! Here’s a complete list of all the posts so far. Feel free to join in.

As much as I’m enjoying having a wee bit extra breathing space by doing the challenge fortnightly, I’m really missing working on Amy and Kelvin’s story. Even though Kelvin and Amy’s efforts are critical to the events in Working the Asset, it’s not the same as trekking through the snow with them.

With that in mind, here’s the next installment of Amy and Kelvin’s story. Visit their page for all of their posts.

Hi all! Our internet went on a major go slow, like slow-slow. I spent the better part of today getting it back up to speed, and thankfully it’s running smoothly now. Yay! On the non-yay front, I’ve run out of time in my workday and haven’t had the time to work on this week’s Genre Scribes.
Never fear, Amy and Kelvin will be back tomorrow.
Till then, stay awesome.

Genre Scribes: Friday Fiction Writing Challenge #42 — Extort

Welcome to #42 of the Friday Fiction Writing Challenge! Here’s a complete list of all the posts so far. Feel free to join in.

Hi everyone! Guess who remembered to set up a reminder for the challenge. I’m seriously toying with having a 3:45AM daily reminder tell me what day it is. (And, yes, 3:45 is our normal get up for Jez‘s work during lockdown.)

We’re back with Amy and Kelvin’s story, picking where we left them last time. Visit their page for all of their posts.

I had a lot of fun writing this one, mainly because of Harvey. He’s been living in my head for about three years, and I’ve been dying to let him out onto the page. I hope you enjoy meeting him. 🤞

Who Knew It Was Friday

Life in a key worker household is a wee bit random at the best of times, but during lockdown? Crazy doesn’t quite cover it. I’ve been operating under the delusion that today is last Saturday. Yeah, as I said crazy.

Due to said confusion, I won’t be posting the Genre Scribes challenge this week. But, I’ve got reminders all over my calendar for next week.

Until then, stay safe.
