FRIDAY FICTION with RONOVAN WRITES

With decades of writing behind me and daily learning of how to be a better writer, and by daily, I do mean constant, I wanted to give a way for current friends and future finders of this blog a way to push themselves to improve as well.

Through this challenge my hopes are you will:

  1. Find your voice
  2. Step out of comfort zones to discover a genre where your talent truly lies
  3. Perhaps make connections that will help you become a better writer

DEADLINE IS:

23:59 EST (New York Time) Wednesday. I will then have Thursday to complete reading the entries and compiling the links and such. I do read all entries. You can ask any of my Haiku Challenge family/community members.

I DO ASK THAT YOU:

  • Keep it PG as all ages do follow the blog and may click through and read the entries. (C0ntinue for exceptions.)
  • If you do write a piece of fiction that goes past the PG level, copy the link into the comments of this post and make a note of it being such and give the reasons you think it is, such as violence, sexual content, language/profanity.
  • No violence toward children by adults or predatory aspects toward children. I know you may have two kids have a fight. I get that, but I don’t want gratuitous violence such as glorifying bullying. Also I can see you having a kid kicking some bad guy in the face for some reason. I get it.
  • No sexual assault against anyone.

WHEN YOU HAVE COMPLETED YOUR WORK OF FICTION:

Copy and paste your URL in the comments of the challenge post, or do a ping back to this post. This does not mean you must share a link today, Friday, just because the challenge says Friday in it. It means you must return to this post or ping back to this post.

A ping back is copying and pasting the URL of the challenge post into your post. That lets people know about the challenge, sort of, and is one way to let me know you’ve entered. Just make certain to visit back here to see your ping back is showing. Confused? Click HERE to see how to do a ping back.

If your blog is with WordPress, TAG your post as Friday Fiction with Ronovan Writes. This way people may find your work in the WP Reader.

IMPORTANT! For those wishing to participate in the possible FREE eBook Project for Fiction, click HERE for the Challenge Page with information at the bottom along with a form of agreement to fill out.

Prompt for Challenge #8

Boab treeUse the photo above as inspiration. This is a Adansonia gregorii or boab tree found in Australia. I see a lot of possibilities for stories from this one, ranging across genres. This week, don’t worry about word count and let the mind go where it wants.

I know some of you are doing a series, but I can see how this tree could fit in with the stories that are ongoing.

    1. It looks like you did the ping back properly, but it didn’t make it through the bowels of WordPress back here. That happens sometimes. I visited your blog and clicked your ping back and it came to the site, thus it is done correctly. 🙂 Thank you for joining in. 🙂

            1. If people don’t include a title, I usually come up with one after reading the entry. I do it with my Haiku Challenge every week. I think the poets like to see what wacky things I come up with. But I don’t get wacky with fiction, unless the story calls for it.

  1. Hi Ronovan! This is my first attempt at your challenge. I recognised this Boab as a tree that has a very specific history in Western Australia. It is connected with Aboriginal legend and their early encounters with the settlers so the story is a bit sombre but is based on fact. Hope it is of interest. Many thanks for the opportunity to branch out a bit. Best wishes! TJ

  2. Hi Ron! I really got into this challenge taking your “…don’t worry about word count and let the mind go where it wants.” suggestion. My mind went…and I dare say could keep going on this one. After spending many months writing flashes of fiction of 200 words or less, I have to say it was awesome to let my mind “go with it”. 🙂 Love the photo this week. Of course I had to look it up to see what it was. Google led me on a quest to the Northwest region of Australia and to southern Africa…to the discovery of ancient legends, history and scientific research. It’s been fun. Thanks again for hosting. Have a great rest of the weekend. ~kat
