How has your week been? I’ve had grilled food, editing, being rained on, and what-have-ya to eat/take advantage of/get done.
Very cool…especially because grilled chicken is WONDERFUL.
Which is also neat because I posted here about 100-year-old writer Herman Wouk.
As these things generally do, different events, posts, and what-have-ya mix inside my head and come out in different ways. That’s the writerly process for you. At least, a bit of mine. More subconscious than anything.
In this case, what’s spit out the machine is this week’s prompt for Fabulous Fiction Friday, a.k.a. Triple F. Here you go:
Your character has a piece of 100 year old chicken. Why?
Notice I didn’t say it smelled or not. That’s for you to decide. If it doesn’t smell, why not? That can be part of your setting and plot (after you figure out character–or before, it doesn’t too much matter).
And if it’s alive, and it does smell on its own, we have wordplay. And another possible piece of the plot. What is the hundred-year-old bird up to?
I did say it was a piece of a bird. How is it alive? Is it trying to find the rest of itself? And does your character help or hinder that mission?
I know I’d like to keep this up, but eventually I have to sign off. That’s enough fun for now. And that’s what makes fiction cool.
This is the last Friday, and week, of May 2015! It’ll be June by next Monday.
Make it an awesome weekend, with good memories, all right?
Until next week (and month!)
