Come by and check it out. 2. Ideally, try to write a fiction story based on the prompt. But if the prompt doesn't inspire you, you can write a story on any topic you like - THE ONLY RULE IS THAT IT HAS TO BE A WORK OF FICTION. 3. On Thursday night or Friday morning-ish, the Stories List will be posted for that week. If you've written a story, announce it in the comments section of this post. Please include a short description and the title. 4. Show support for your fellow participants: If possible, please try to read and comment on at least three stories. ________________ For more information, or if you have any questions, please see the list of links below, or feel free to contact me!__________Happy reading and writing!

Fiction Weekend Prompt for 2/24-2/26 2012

Rate: 5 Flag
limbs
 
 
This week's prompt is:
 
Write a story in which a character is missing all or part of a limb, or gets all or part of a limb removed. 
 
 
Or, if that doesn't inspire you, write a fiction piece on any topic, in any style you want.

I'll post the Stories List Thursday night or Friday morning, and participants are free to announce their stories throughout the weekend.

REMEMBER, everyone is welcome to participate in the OS Weekend Fiction Club - the only requirement is that your piece be a work of fiction.

 

 If you don't know what "Fiction" means in terms of this blog, please see this post for an explanation.

 

 If you feel inspired, come join in!  For information on how to announce your story, etc, feel free to click here .  Or check out the basic info in the profile column, near the top left of the border of our blog.

 

Happy writing!

Somehow that old joke about the kid who only has ahead comes to mind. R
m. brando had a great line in apocalypse now about a big pile of chopped off arms -- i've always wondered why ffc didn't _film_ it, instead of having an overweight bald guy _talk_ about it. on the other hand, if he did film kurtz's story, it would have been excruciating to sit through.
I'd just like to know who the disarming sweetheart is who thought up this macabre prompt! Jeez, ok, ok, I'll keep my hands to myself, sorry!
I hope I can find / make the time to write something this week. I think this prompt just might do the trick.

What an amazing coincidence! I have just stumbled upon a long and deservedly lost 18th century sea chanty that ties in perfectly with the prompt. "A Digital Doggerel Ditty" coming soon to my site.
