The lack of consistent communication between DW's and LJ's cross-posting feature is ever increasingly frustrating. I'm opening myself up to #FicFriday prompts!

Continuing the new tradition from here:

    Leave prompts in the comment section below
    — I will respond with at least 2-sentences of fic, unless I get carried away
    — You can request anything (take a look at my interests for ideas), including OF
    — Leave prompts for 140 Character Fic over on Twitter, too! Use the hashtag #FicFriday
    — Brevity is the soul of wit
    — HAVE FUN!


If you have a #FicFriday post of your own, link me to it in the comments so I can prompt you as well! Happy writing, everyone!

Trying to get back into the swing of things after a crazy busy start to March, and then being gross-sick for a week. So Happy #FicFriday!

They say the mind is a faucet: creativity doesn't come pouring out until you turn it on.

It's easier for some than it is for others. The axiom is simple: you can't write unless you first start to write. Words won't magically appear on the page. Yet, for how strongly the writing world tries to decry writer's block as hokum, a self-created fear that only you can manipulate, it doesn't change the fact that oftentimes writing is hard. You can't turn on your creativity, there is no magical switch to your imagination, and no matter how many words you type you still feel stuck, hammering the backspace key until you feel perpetually in reverse. That's when the axiom becomes a diatribe, and the author is lost to despair or anger (or both - or binge eating). There are oodles of advertised "fixes" for this problem, most of which follow the same basic formula of just write something. Anything. It doesn't matter what. Turn the faucet on.

Now, I'm not going to yammer on like some advice column with a magical fix, because there is no magical fix (except written kitten, naturally). The point of all this is to talk about my favorite new writing exercise: 140 Character Fic, or Twitter Fic.

proposed ideas and changes for the new year )

my #FicFriday fills for the past two weeks )

So, ever since I first got a Twitter account (uh, a year ago >_>) I've wanted to try an idea. 140 character fics. I'm always looking for interesting new writing exercises, and I thought it would also be a fun and useful way of utilizing Twitter to send something more positive out into the ether than just, "I'm having fruit loops for breakfast!" Also, because I love alliterations, I was thinking of doing it as a weekly thing every Friday. I never use the #FF hashtag, so why not reassign it? #FicFriday #140CharFic

Long story short, I tossed the idea out to my feed yesterday (yes I know, Monday/Tuesday, not Friday, but people were having tough Mondays and I thought they could use a little cheer!), and it was met with a lot of positivity. I think I'm going to make it a thing from now on, and if you guys want to jump on it as well, all I can say is go for it.

Here are my filled requests:

    BBC Robin Hood, Guy/Marian, for Rachel:
    "He wanted to believe he could be different; he wanted to believe she could love him, even if he remained exactly the same."

    Hell on Wheels, Lily/Robert, for Laura:
    "But it wasn't until after the lecture, when he looked at her with eyes as pregnant as his Kansas thunderstorms, that she knew."

    The Adventures of Brisco County Jr., Brisco/Dixie, for Missy:
    "She's the fire in his bones, and he's the steady man she never did have. Together they reckon they're something akin to whole."

    Milliways 'verse, Maid Marian-Lily Bell, for Amanda:
    "She has a home to rebuild, a sure place in a troubled world. But so does Lily. A missing roof of hope, & faith in progress."

    Once Upon a Time, Graham/Regina, for Jen:
    "It's been forty years since she's seen him cry. Now as he shudders, pushing her back, he's unaware that there is one heart aching."

    Milliways 'verse, Charles Xavier-Queen Regina (Mills), for Fi:
    "He can feel it, even rooms away from the main bar. The echo, the humming. He clutches his head, and knows. The Queen is here."



As you can see, it's fairly simple (though, holy COW some of the fics you guys have written me in return = CHILLS), and so far I've been including the @ names. Which would technically make these less-than-140-character fics. So far, my only rule is to have a "0" on spare letters by the time I'm finished. But, guys? It's really, really fun.

Feel free to spread this around! #FF

You know who you are.

All right, flist. I've finally broken down and signed up for Twitter. Friend me for amusing user error shenanigans as I figure out how to make this bloody thing work. *FROWNS FOREVER*
