Not a lot of progress on my objectives for the past two weeks, but I have been writing. Two FFF's completed. Other than that, some blogs read, some critiques done, and a lot of online gaming. And some books read/started.
This week's FFF prompt was Valentine's Day related—write about love between monsters. Because everybody, or everything, deserves a little love.
My monsters were an added challenge, as they were gender neutral, so I had to abandon the conventional 'he said, she said'. But I enjoyed writing this one. Love is often about a struggle to overcome doubts and opposition, even when within oneself.
This week's FFF challenge was to pick a first line at random from a list. Then write a 1000 word story from there.
The list was:
1- "Do you ever think we should just stop doing this?"
2- Detroit had been without aliens for years.
3- "If you leave now, you get nothing."
4- With sadness, she realised they needed some time apart.
5- I have two things on my mind: rice and zombies.
6- "You were meant to be watching him!"
I got the last one, #6. Here's my story, at 1008 - a tad over. I tried to show more and tell less this time. Backstory is still hard to hide.
I think my sister picked up that term as a schoolteacher - meaning more than more. At any rate, as a writer, I can choose to follow the rules or not. I missed last Wednesday's post because I was on a train back from Toronto, but I have been doing more-ther writerly things. Status follows . . .
