Fiction Fodder Fridays – Fri 16 Apr

Hello. Here are your prompts for this week. As well as these sheets every Friday, the lovely author assistant/editor/lady Friday(!) Caroline Vincent will be posting my Word Count Wednesdays posts so you can let us know how your writing’s been going over the previous week. I aim for 300 words a day which is an astounding 109,500 words a year and so, starting today, you could have that (or more) by this time next year!

These random sheet posts include the text versions together with explanations of any individual pictures so that anyone unable to see the picture and prompts will be able to read the text, or have to text read to them. It also means you can copy and paste the text should you wish to use it for your own writing.

Make of them what you will and let me know how you get on in the comments section below (or on FacebookTwitter). NB. just give us a summary unless you want to share the whole piece but if you post the actual writing, it’s deemed as published and you’ll be limiting where you can send it. So here goes…

  1. Perry takes potshot at the great white male
  2. A photo of a lynx with underneath the text: Plea to return Lynx to Highlands
  3. A player changes at Weston Green Sports Club in Surrey, where washing facilities leave a lot to be desired and some teams are forced to change into their kit outdoors

Good morning. Yes, it’s that time of the week again.

After a not-bad result last week I’m back to zero. I ended up taking the Easter weekend off from any kind of work but for this Sunday my friend and I will be swapping the pieces we wrote on our first weekend and continuing the other person’s story(!) so I’ll let you know how we got on.

Word Count Wednesday 31 Mar

Good morning. Yes, it’s that time of the week again.

I’m delighted to say that I have been writing! A friend and I have started a Sunday morning writeathon where we aim to write 1,000+ words and we did, albeit a mere 54 over that for me. He’s also an editor so we’ve swapped and critiqued each other’s, and we’re still speaking to each other. So I hope to have something around that cliched ball park if not more in future weeks.

How have you been getting on? Do leave a comment below to share your progress, successes and otherwise, and of course anything else that’s happened to you, writing wise, over the past seven days.
