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 6/8 - 6/10 2012

Rate: 8 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 from the point of view of the type of  person you probably wouldn't like or would strongly disagree with if you met them. 
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!

I'm let me see if I can do something with this...
Not writing this week, but will comment in between the acts. : )
I've submitted two Flash Fiction pieces which do not totally meet the prompt however, I hope you find them entertaining.

The Head Voice and The Popeye Chronicles are the titles.
"Bright Angel Feet" at my house!
My contribution this week is "A Gentleman of Fashion." I hope you like the story more than the character.
My short story for this week is called Seth James Must Die and it's about a bad day. This story also constitutes one year of weekly short stories contributed to OWSF, so I threw together an index, more for my reference than anything, but if you want to take a look, it's called A year of weekly short stories on OS Weekend Fiction (very original title, I know). Thanks and happy reading!
"I'm not going to argue about it!"
That is the title of my story for this week.
I hope you enjoy it.
Weekend Fiction
This is my first piece posted to this site. While it does not match the prompt, I think you might find it enjoyable. It is called "Riding the Line." It about a young woman who rides the bus to work each morning.
I have a piece, written a while back, which fits this category:
"The Last Republican in the World." Kinda a sci fi piece, only not so much sci as fi.
The third installment of The Acapulco Cocktail is posted, along with the earlier ones. Enjoy this light read, along with other readings.
"I'll Love You Forever" Tongue in Cheek words about marriage. I am a cynic I guess.
This week's story is "If I Had a Rocket Launcher." Cheers.
