For some reason this post didn’t go live as scheduled at 0500. Sorry to those waiting patiently to link up!
The second thing I did (this morning) is write my story. So it’s impromptu again. When it goes live, if there’s no story there yet…
I’m still working on it! Just go on and post your link in the comment section anyway. Whew! Made it just under the bell.
An aside to Triberr members and Twitter hashtag users: The first thing I did was change the title of this post. I took out the hashtags. Since joining Triberr, I get a lot of tweets of my blog posts and if the hashtags are in the title, it really clogs up the tag feed. I don’t want to turn off potential readers by having them curse my name every time they search a hashtag to narrow the tweet stream. If you’re in Triberr please consider doing the same.
We have more members than ever before, so it is taking longer than Friday evening to get through them all. Sometimes it is taking me days! I start with the first commenters first and move down the list as quickly as I can. If the day job is hectic, it’ll take me longer.
And we’re off to write, link and read stories!
Tweet your link, too, and add the #FridayFictioneers hashtag so we can easily find you and RT.
I’m always open to constructive criticism if you see mistakes or ways to improve upon what I’ve done. This is a learning exercise for me. However, not everyone feels that way, so if you don’t see an invitation to critique on their post, don’t do it. A lot of people just want and need encouragement!
We are the Friday Fictioneers and we gather every Friday here to post a very short story. It’s a great way to showcase your voice, but to do it in 100 word is almost an extreme challenge. It forces you to choose strong verbs and concise phrases.
Hop on board and post one of yours or visit ours, or do both.
