The objective of the Fast Fiction Friday exercise is to write with complete focus on the given subject. One of the best ways to accomplish this task is to write for a set amount of time, without distractions and without editing. Let the words flow from your mind to the paper and ignore self doubt and outside issues. The goal is to become so addicted to writing that you can't help but do it! All writers are welcome whether you write short stories, poems, memoirs, non-fiction, essays or a personal journal. Feel free to share your work or link back.


Fast Fiction is fiction written fast. The object is to forget about reason and doubt and focus on the prompt. Don't think about it... just write.

Close your eyes and type, write in shorthand, dictate into a machine... whatever it takes to write without interruption or allowing yourself to edit.
