Welcome back to another Monday blog post! As we head further into March and I have a few months of school behind me I’m finding that my schedule is stabilizing and it’s becoming easier to plan blog post and book reviews. I’m also diving back into the actual novel writing portion of this blog and beginning to plan out that aspect a little bit more. I’m aware it’s not a Friday, but hey, everyone could use some TGIF to get them through the week.
So what exactly is Fiction Friday? Well, starting this week, Fridays I will be publishing a post based off of one (maybe more?) of my week’s writing prompts or a segment of Keepers or Stealth that I’ve made progress on from that week. I’ll be tweeting a tag line using #FastFri and #fictionfriday on twitter.
The second is a friend of mine from DigiPen, a fellow writer and game designer, Nicole Maiorano (@noicolemaiorano). Nicole has a great website filled with her creative endeavors in both game design and writing and her segment of ‘writing doodles’ caught my attention. In her mind, not all writing has to be novel length and if artists can doodle, why can’t authors? Her writing doodles seemed pretty inline with my warmups and if she can blog them, why shouldn’t I?
And finally, a friend of mine, Brandon, has been extremely supportive of my writing. Pushing me to write even the most trivial of prompts, just to keep my muscles going. Brandon is a great concept and character artist whose blog you should check out and check in on often. Everything he posts is better than the last.
So all of this is leading up to my final point; you. This is where you come in. I need your help. With Camp NaNoWriMo around the corner I need to get back into shape and that means more writing and more prompts. Be my muse and leave a prompt idea, feedback, or even just a word in the comments below or via twitter, fb, or email and I will use your suggestions for future Fiction Friday content. Together we can create something wonderful and I can’t wait to share it with you!
For now, I’ll leave you with a five minute sprint from this weekend and a quote from Keeper’s from a writing session on Saturday.
