UL left a comment on one of my posts in which she mentioned Fiction Friday. I thought I’d have a go.
The idea seems to be that you write a piece in no less than five minutes then post it without first correcting it. That goes a bit against the grain for me, because I usually write articles a couple of days before posting them, then return to them several times for 'fine tuning' before hitting the Publish button! If you think they are pretty poor when you read them, you should see the original versions!
Actually, I’ve already broken the first rule because I am supposed to post this on Friday, and today is Saturday! But this is my first go, so I should get away with no more than a slapped wrist!
The prompt was ‘New Year's Resolution your character breaks? How soon? Why’ So here it is.
Well, as if that wasn't enough, up she popped again with another writers site -Sunday Scriblings! By co-incidence the prompt there was very similar to FFs - New Year, so I thought I'd kill two birds with one spoon so to speak!
I resolved to go to bed earlier every night. One a.m. instead of two. At one thirty I realised I’d broken my first resolution. More sleep deprivation!
I resolved to eat three meals day, like breakfast lunch and dinner. But it only lasted for one day!
It gave me constipation!
I resolved to change my route to work. Drive a different way each day. On the first day I took a wrong turn and got lost. Maximum confusion!
I resolved to drink only red wine. Good for my heart I was told. But I liked it so much I forgot to stop. Serious intoxication!
I resolved to go more green, and change my bulbs for low energy ones. Now I can’t see what I’m doing. Poor illumination!
Then I resolved to be myself, and stop trying to change the way I do things. I'm managing that one! My final resolution!
Is that it? Guess so. Now I'll pop off and post a couple of links and see what happens! Fun isn't it!
