My Week, And A Bit Of Hard Thinking For Triple F

How’s it going? This has been an interesting week (my first one with two back-to-back consultations, one with an author, and one with our collective project manager and a company president–very cool).

I debated saying this or not, but I decided to anyway. Yesterday was the 13th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. I’m not here to be political. It just got me thinking–serious events usually do that.

If you get nothing else from this blog, I need you to realize something: Life is short. And there’s tremendous value in showing up, participating, and being genuine. That’s what life’s about.

That’s what I want Fiction And Copy Decoded to be about, too. Showing up, sharing knowledge, having fun, and enjoying the time (and pixels here) that we have together.

Here’s your prompt for this week’s Triple F:

Write a story about something that you can see from where you sit.

Simple, right? But only on the surface. What do you have in front of you, right now? A stapler? Printer? Maybe a filing cabinet, desk lamp, or a fancy phone with a built-in answering machine?

What about natural things like trees, grass, rain, or sunshine?

Now…HOW do you write about those things? You can write a story that features them as a object (I should do more of those for Triple F), or make them the main character (had to go the science fiction/fantasy angle, you know).

All right, now what? Well, as I’ve said before, this is fiction, so feel free to imagine. There are posts in the sidebar about setting and character (as well as previous Fabulous Fiction Friday prompts) if you need a literary juice boost.

Remember yesterday’s lessons. Forget the hurts. Make plans, but be open to changing them.

And make it a great weekend too, all right?

Until next time,
