I’m standing in for Justin today because he’s got a major creative writing assignment due soon, and I guess his instructor doesn’t think that Thoughtful Thursday counts for that.

Justin has to write a vignette about a mundane event in his life (he chose visiting Steak ‘n Shake), but he also has to have amnesia and he’s not allowed to use the word “amnesia” in the story.

Justin’s taking this class because of his interest in writing fiction. I’m wondering how many of our readers are also interested in writing fiction? Have you taken a creative writing course? Have you written any fan fiction? Are you working on a story? Have you actually submitted anything for publication, or had your work published somewhere? Tell us about it!

As usual, one commenter will win a book from our teetering stacks.

When she reads fiction, she wants to encounter new ideas and lots of imagination. She wants to view the world in a different way. She wants to have her mind blown. She loves beautiful language and has no patience for dull prose, vapid romance, or cheesy dialogue. She prefers complex characterization, intriguing plots, and plenty of action. Favorite authors are Jack Vance, Robin Hobb, Kage Baker, William Gibson, Gene Wolfe, Richard Matheson, and C.S. Lewis.
