Fiction Weekend Stories for 5/11-5/13 2012

Rate: 3 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 based on an idea from this writing prompt site:
 
Write a story that takes place in or involves somewhere you lived or knew well as a kid.  Try to use description to bring the place vividly to life.  REMEMBER, this should be FICTION, not memoir.  (Think To Kill a Mockingbird, NOT The Story of My Life!)  Have fun with the idea - maybe imagine what your best friend's life was like growing up, or what would have happened if your hometown had been invaded by aliens, or invent a character and give them an adventure to have in this place you knew, etc. 

  
Or, if that didn't inspire you, 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!

Something a little different from me this week: "The Boy at the Edge of the Woods.", a short story on the dark side. Strange goings on down at the Lake. Things hinted but unsaid; suggested but unconfirmed. An enigma? Interpretations welcome. Discuss!
After a long break, I have finally written something for this weeks prompt.

"It happened next week, but only seems like tomorrow!"

I hope you enjoy this short story.
Looking forward to this! I'm in with "The Northern Lights" - summer in Michigan and the aurora borealis.
"Focused"......from one who exists only partly in the---here
Feed the Yuggothi is my short story for this week. It follows 10-year old Brian and his friends as they adventure in the woods and find more than they ever imagined.
The final unfolding of Sun on the Rocks - The Malibu Case, is out, along with earlier installments. Enjoy the light reading and welcome to the finish line of this first episode featuring teleoperator Clarity Nice and her friends, many thanks to all those who have kindly followed and supported the story from the onset.
I want to mention an older post, which starts out in San Francisco, which I didn't get to know until I was an adult, but the piece goes way back into a lot of scenes from my earlier existence. None of the story is actually true, despite the way I tell it.
I have a few newer ideas in the works, but I usually have to sit on my idea for a while before it "hatches".

"Goat Mountain" is my semifiction for this week.

Hope you get time to read it.
Short story about the Island I grew up on in the Pacific. Guam. Thanks for reading and commenting. I love our little club here.
Hi everyone. This week's story is "How I Killed D. B. Cooper."

I hope everyone has a nice weekend.
Fanny returns this Mothers day with high expectations in "Something in the Way Upstairs. A return to the Johnson Farm and "The Summer Interns". Hope you enjoy.
