Genre Scribes #47 — Title

Harvey looped his arms under Kelvin’s. “Take a leg each, and be ready, he’s going to be a dead weight.”
Amy shot him a look. “He’s still breathing.”
“Not if you don’t hurry up,” Harvey muttered.

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 unforeseen 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

“Oh, yeah, great adventure. I love having my plane shot down, getting chased halfway down a frozen mountain, and being terrified most of the time.”

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.

A five-year-old could tell by the unnatural angle of Nick’s head that his neck was broken. “I can see that. Tell me something that isn’t painfully obvious.”

Quick note: As I’m working hard on Working the Asset (Deniable Unit Novel #1), I’m cutting Genre Scribes to once a fortnight (every two weeks).

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. 🤞

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.)

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.
