Oh Vanity of Vanities – Fiction Friday Revived

audrey hepburn

You may need a little background before you read this excerpt from my larger work of fiction (still very much in progress).  I drew inspiration from my own bad hair cut, wrote about it, and continued the story line.  It’s all purely fiction, but you can gain a little understanding if you go back and […]

Fiction Friday – Picture This

“For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart. It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul.”  ~ Judy Garland  Chapter 4  Tony sat on a park bench, far enough away not to get in the way, but close enough to see the curve of Lacy’s bottom in her […]

Fiction Friday, 10th Edition – It’s all I’ve got

flipflopsonporch1960s

I didn’t think this was good enough to show you last week and sadly, I haven’t changed one little word in it all week.  I haven’t even read over it.  So, forgive me for giving you the rough and undone.  It’s all I’ve got. Chapter 3 continued from week 8… “One of Mason’s boys gave […]

Writing Inspiration – Fiction Friday #9

Today is Fiction Friday, but I’ll be honest, I’m not ready to share any more of my fiction.  It’s just not where it should be.  It’s riddled with mistakes and I don’t have the time to fix it right now.  I haven’t written anything on my work in progress (WIP) in almost a month.  Isn’t […]

Fiction Friday: They Found the Murder Weapon

“There is no rule more invariable than that we are paid for our suspicions by finding what we suspect.”  ~ Henry David Thoreau Chapter 3 Lacy looked over to her purse sitting in the front passenger seat of her Wrangler.  She heard its’ incessant ringing and debated taking the call, but she wasn’t in the […]

Baked Potatoes & Exotic Vacations – Fiction Friday 6th Edition

I’m continuing the story, It’s Not My Life, from last week.  If you’ve been reading my blog for any length of time, you’ll recognize that I’m weaving truth and fiction very closely.  I’m still not sure it’s a great idea, but many of you seemed to enjoy, so here’s page 2.  Hope everyone has a […]

Fiction Friday – 5th Edition – Not My Life

Today I decided to share something different.  I once had the idea of weaving truth with fiction and creating a novel about a woman married to a pastor who began secretly blogging her life.  I thought it would be a light, funny book; however, I soon discovered it had no plot.  Books need plots.  Also, […]

A New Day for Fiction Writers

It’s all settled. Fiction Friday will be hosted right here on The Domestic Fringe.  I’ll pull out all the stops and throw a Linky into my post. Now you’re excited, aren’t you?
