Fiction Fodder Fridays – Fri 27th March

Hello. Here are your prompts for this week.  As well as these sheets every Friday, the lovely author assistant/editor/lady Friday(!) Caroline Vincent (who pretties these sheets before they go live) will be posting Word Count Wednesdays 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 posts will still 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. Day 4: Vik & Flam, Norway with a picture of Flamsbana train.
  2. Hot right now!
  3. December 10, Keith Joseph
  4. Dusk in Los Angeles and Kesha is swinging her long layered hair back and forth
  5. tote bag with a cartoon smiley face
  6. Paper plane challenge, Cambridge

  11. a freezing bath in the morning and a scalding one in the evening

Word Count Wednesday

Yes, it’s that time of the week again. How have you been getting on?

I’ve been doing my daily 300+ words, on flash fiction this week, which brings my total to 1,822 words this past week (last Wednesday to last night).

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.

Word Count Wednesday

Yes, it’s that time of the week again. How have you been getting on?

I’ve been doing my daily 300+ words, mostly on flash fiction, but also on longer works in progress and have written 3,274 words this past week (last Wednesday to last night). They were all flash fictions this week as I usually need chunks of time to work on novels but I’m hoping to get more done in the next few days.

Word Count Wednesday

Yes, it’s that time of the week again. How have you been getting on?

I’ve been doing my daily 300+ words, mostly on flash fiction, but also on longer works in progress and have written 6,511 words this past week (last Wednesday to last night). 4,454 was from writing a different story (some finished, most not) every day and 2,057 from a new novel, the idea for which I got while out walking my dog last week, as often happens.
