Genre Scribes Update

Hi everyone! I just wanted to let you know that there won’t be a Genre Scribes post this week. It’s my anniversary (and Jez’s), so I want to have a wee bit of down time with the man himself.

Fun fact: 23 years ago today, we hung out together for the first time.

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. 🤞

This week’s random word is: Extort

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.

I went a wee bit nuts making face masks (Jez has the details of how to make them on his post)

As it’s Jez’s last day of holiday before we go back to the craziness of his work schedule tomorrow, there won’t be a Genre Scribes: Friday Fiction post today. But, as I’ll be up nice and early (some would say it’s still night-time), I plan on getting the post up tomorrow. Until then, stay safe 🤗

Genre Scribes: Friday Fiction Writing Challenge #40 — Leash

Welcome to #40 of the Friday Fiction Writing Challenge! Here’s a complete list of all the posts so far. Feel free to join in.

I hope you are all well, and remembering to stay at home. It’s been a busy couple of weeks for us, but luckily my key worker hubs has a few days off! We hear that the livingroom is nice this time of year 😂

Again, I’m still in Amy and Kelvin’s world. If you’d like to catch up with their story here’s a link to their page.

Genre Scribes: Friday Fiction Writing Challenge #39 — Prestige

Welcome to #39 of the Friday Fiction Writing Challenge! Here’s a complete list of all the posts so far. Feel free to join in.

I’m going to start this post with a couple of quick announcements/updates for the challenge.

  1. With the COVID-19 outbreak hitting hard, I’m going to have to reduce the challenge to every fortnight (every two weeks). If I can post more than that, I will. Don’t worry, I’m not ill—and touch wood—neither is anyone I know. The reason behind the change is down to picking up extra responsibilities while my husband’s workload increases in the food retail sector to meet the massive increase in demand.
  2. There’s a slight change in the challenge rules. We have a new word count limit: 500-ish words.

And onto the post.

Once again. I decided to challenge myself to continue Amy and Kelvin’s story from where we left them last week. (If you’ve missed any of their story, you can find all their links here.)

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.
