Guess Blogger: Friday Fictioneers

Published April 9, 2018 by rochellewisoff

Many have read my story of my Friday Fictioneers beginnings before. For those who haven’t, my thanks to Phyllis for inviting me to do a guest blog.

Friday Fictioneer is a weekly writing challenge hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Field. She posts a photograph and the challenge is to write a 100 word short story.

I asked Rochelle if she’d like to give us the history of how she became involved and eventually the host of FF. Here is her story:

HERDING CATS

Six years ago, as a newly published author of a short story anthology, writing and rewriting my first novel, I didn’t have much of a direction for my blog. The few articles I posted were met with overwhelming disinterest.

One April day I noticed a Facebook post by someone named Madison Woods on the Ozarks Writers League page announcing the time had come for Friday Fictioneers. I found the title intriguing so I asked her about it.

  • Dear Rochelle,

    Though I know your story, I still had to read it πŸ˜‰ I am pretty darn proud to call myself a Friday Fictioneer and truly believe it has helped me develop my writing skills. Thank you, again, for herding us cat every week!

    Now get back to your vacation!

    Lotsa love,

    Dale

  • I well remember when Madison was ready to move on and Doug ‘nominated’ you to take over. You breathed new life into FriFlic with your photo choices and enthusiasm. I kind of owe my flash fiction blogging start to Madison, and I am sure there are many who can count you as their muse, I do.

    • Dear Ted,

      Your support from the beginning with your kind words and free rein to ‘borrow’ your wonderful photos have made this challenge a pleasure. Admittedly, Mr. MacIlroy was instrumental in noodging me into the position. And I certainly owe Madison a lot. Before finding Friday Fictioneers I’d never heard of flash fiction. In so many ways, this has been one of the best decisions of my life. Thank you so much for your kind words.

      Shalom,

      Rochelle

  • Loved reading your story.It comes to me exactly at the right time. I haven’t been able to participate as much as I would like the past few months but coming to FF every Wednesday to see what’s up is a weekly routine. It is a great group and I am glad to be part of it.

      I’m always happy to share this story. I can honestly say that joining Friday Fictioneers and, subsequently assuming the leadership role
      has been a life changing experience. No regrets and very happy to have you aboard. πŸ˜€

      Rochelle
