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 11/9-11/11 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 inspired by National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo):
Write the beginning of a novel.
This could be one sentence, one paragraph, a page or two, or a first chapter.
It could just be for fun, or you could decide to continue.  At the end of November, you could let us know that you've finished..and maybe even that you've published your new novel as an ebook! 
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!

OS is GASPING away more than half of you from visiting me comfortably! This goes to the "lifeboat"
This goes to OS JUST IN CASE you can make a connection in less than 10 minutes... (is this really IT for OS?)
You guys have inspired me. I wrote "The Bride's Initiation" more than three years ago... but there is a lot more story to be told. We'll see what kind of response I get from you guys.
Installment three of the Cayman Islands Air Banner is posted. Clarity and her friends decide whether to go diving with Buddha Talk, the secretive Cayman banking official from Lofty Bank. Enjoy.
The Daemon's Gambit is my sort of first chapter for a fantasy trilogy I entirely mapped out earlier this year (when taking a break from my current novel) but decided not to write after looking over the current "powerhouse" fantasy fiction franchises. Don't think there'd be much of an audience for mine. But here's what the first chapter of the first book might have looked like. Hope you enjoy it and thanks for reading!
I'm in with a paragraph! Viva NaNoWriMo!
Just a paragraph from me but I hope it brightens your day. "Spirals"
