Yes! So far I have managed to enter each Furious Fiction for 2020, which was one of my writing goals.
I think that it is good to practise writing to a set of criteria, it keeps me on my toes.
This month’s criteria was not at all inspiring for me, I had to start the story with the word “five”, it had to contain “a/the silver lining”, and it had to have something being changed.
I started out writing a reinvented fairy tale, and half way through switched tact, opened up a new document, and ended up writing a crime story. It was a departure from my normal story, this one was humorous and conversational, which is not something I use in my short stories.
I ended up with a 500 word entry that I really love, now to wait to see what the judges think!
