Hello fiction writers of OS! Here you'll find weekly prompts for Fiction Weekend, as well as links to stories written for each Fiction Weekend Open Call._____________________ EVERYONE is welcome to participate in the open calls. THE ONLY REQUIREMENT IS TO WRITE A FICTION PIECE! __________________________________ Here's how to take part in Fiction Weekend: 1. Every Monday, a prompt will be posted here. 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 Stories for 3/2-3/4 2012

Rate: 5 Flag

This is the place to read Fiction Weekend stories for this Friday/Saturday/Sunday - and to announce your own piece! 

Stories will be posted throughout the weekend, so feel free to check back regularly for new pieces to read.

If you're participating, announce your piece with its title and a brief description in the Comments section of this post.

This week's prompt was:

Write a story in which a character gets an award.  
Or, if that didn't seem like a winner, you could write a fiction piece on any topic, in any style you want.

Everyone is welcome to join in - if you feel inspired, go for it! 

The only requirement is that a piece announced in the comments be a fiction piece.  

If you're not sure what qualifies as "fiction" in terms of the Fiction Club, please read this  

For information about how to announce a story, etc, please see our "Bio" in the left margin of this page.

You have all weekend to write your story and announce it in the comments section below.

Happy writing and reading!

The Paper Hero is my short story for this week, a courtroom drama and a trip down memory lane (if you were a betamax user, anyway).
Sometimes an honor is not all it is cracked up to be. This nail-biter of youthful angst will bring back memories for many. My submission this week is "The Honor."
Come gather 'round, O' Brothers and Sisters of the Leaf!

Thank you Alysa for the inspiration this website has given me

"The Character's Award" Ends with a question....
It’s been a while, but I’m back with a view of life from deep left field. But then, that’s the "Santa Fe Style."
"The reluctant Abbot's Tale" (this is a repost)

I posted this here a couple of weeks ago, but it actually fits into this week's theme.
Kudos to the OS Fiction Club--

I've a new short fiction available, 'Stunned Silence'.

Not 'prompt specific', but I've enjoyed the project and must add there's some damn good stuff here on OS...

ASH, I just want to thank you again so, so much for dedicating your new book to me! It is truly an honor. Thank you!
