In the early months of winter – Friday Fiction – Bette Lee Crosby

May 10, 2014 Friday Fiction 2

Nikki Young Writes

I’m working on a new WIP and I’ll be sharing tidbits from the new book in a series called Friday Fiction by Nikki Young Writes. Other bloggers join in so feel free to visit all the blogs who are participating.

Here is her introduction to #fridayfiction –
Do you write fiction? Are you one of those people who writes stories and then files them away? Or are you a writer who’s perfecting his/her craft? What do you think to the idea of sharing your work with like-minded people? Every Friday I will be publishing a Friday Fiction post and I would like to invite you to join me by linking up your own work. It can be a stand alone piece, or an extract from a longer story, but no more than 1000 words, if you can help it. The idea is to produce a short piece of fiction to be enjoyed with a cuppa on a Friday afternoon when winding down for the weekend ahead (or trying to anyway). I hope this is something that might be of interest to you. Please let me know what you think and if you feel like joining in, I will look forward to reading your stories. There will be a button to ‘grab’ and I will also tweet them using the #fridayfiction meme.

Last paragraph I wrote before ending today (I love leaving myself in the middle of a scene, so easy to pick up again tomorrow) Here it is:

In the early months of winter when darkness came early, Benjamin began to think about the boy coming home alone. By then Isaac’s cast was off and he was walking back and forth to the schoolhouse. It was a good four miles and the last part was along Cross Corner Road; that is what caused Benjamin to worry.

    Thanks so much for linking up. I look forward to reading your work. You might want to just check the URL of the link you added though, as it didn’t work when I tried it just now.
