THIS IS A SPECIAL POST COMMEMORATING THE ONE-YEAR BLOGOVERSARY OF THE OS WEEKEND FICTION CLUB BLOG.
TO ANNOUNCE YOUR STORIES FOR THIS WEEK, PLEASE GO TO THIS WEEK'S STORIES LIST.
A few days ago, FW Club regular Seth James sent me a PM. By his calculations, it was just about the one-year anniversary of the OS Weekend Fiction Club Blog.
I told him I'd also noticed the upcoming milestone, but wasn't sure how to approach it - after all, I'm not the one who created the idea of Fiction Weekend/Wednesday/Friday. In its recent incarnation, that would be Rita Bourland, to whom, as a fiction writer here on OS, I'm forever grateful.
I'm also not the one responsible for the staying power of this blog. Sure, I post the weekly Prompts and Stories Lists, but this whole operation would be nothing if it weren't for you guys.
You guys, the writers - whether you've written a fiction story once or only a few times this year, or whether you've posted something just about every week. It's been fantastic discovering your work.
You guys, the readers - we all know OS isn't the best place to showcase fiction; your views and comments have meant the world to so many of us.
You guys, the supporters - I didn't know what I was getting into when I started this blog. Frankly, I was terrified of the commitment, because I have some issues with routine. But posting the weekly prompts and stories lists here couldn't have been easier, and this is mostly due to all of you guys out there who are writing, reading, and otherwise enjoying this blog. You keep me going. Your comments, personal messages, support, and enthusiasm have truly made the OS Weekend Fiction Club what it is.
As I said, I didn't know how to approach our one-year blogoversary, and then I realized, the best way - the only way -is interactively. I'd love to read what you guys think about this past year on the OS Weekend Fiction Club blog. What was/were your favorite prompt(s)? What story or stories are you proudest of having written? Please feel free to share these answers, and/or any other thoughts in the comments section below!
Happy Blogoversary to us, and thanks to everyone who's been a part of the OS Weekend Fiction Club this past year!
