The Origins of Fast Fiction FridayThere are a few sites using the Fast Fiction Friday label and I thought it may be helpful to explain my background with it. I joined Wordtrip in January 2004 as JillStar and soon after became a moderator with the duties of creating writing prompts and challenges.
One of my creations was the Fast Fiction Friday section of the site. I had heard of "Fast Fiction" and decided to improvise and give it a twist. We were charged with picking a day of the week and Friday seemed a no-brainer based on phonetics. A 30 minute writing sprint was enough time to get a rough draft complete and having a challenge once a week gave everyone a chance to polish their rough draft into a finished product. We began the prompts and the rest is history.
You can find the WT FF prompts still up and available at WordTrip. Please feel free to visit and use the prompts to inspire your own writing.
