Blogged Fiction

Filed under: writing — aliceaudrey @ 11:24 pm

You all know I do the Suzie thing every Friday.  I’m having a lot of fun with it and really, really appreciate all the comments people have made.  Even last week when I was still fresh from surgery and didn’t say much I was quick to check out what you all had to say.

A while back ChrisJournal asked me to do a blog on the differences between something like Suzie’s House and writing a book.  I’ve been thinking about it since.

Suzie certainly has an eb and flow to it, but it’s not supposed to be a book.  Essentially I’ll simply keep it up as long as you all let me know you like it.  I don’t have a spacific point or a particular destination in mind.  To me, it’s like a TV show.  Ok, maybe it’s a little more like Babylon 5 than Northern Exposure, but it’s still open ended.

I got to wondering if other people are doing what I’m doing here.  For a while Ericka under her Pamdemonium blog was posting her short fiction on Fridays.  She’s the only one I know posting fiction other than book teasers.

Do any of you know of any serilaized, non-book, blogged fiction out there?  Anything other than book teasers?



  1. There used to be one websites that I knew of dedicated to serial fiction. You paid a flat fee and got your installment once a week. The writer’s got a very small flat fee for the story and an even smaller percentage of each subscriber’s fee. (One was $5 per installment. Then, each subscriber was paying $3/month to get the story and the writer got about a dime of that per subscriber).

    They published a variety of genre’s. . .but went bust about 2 years ago.

    I suspect that serial installment writing works better with fan fiction.

  2. It looks like the Midnight Moon Cafe is going to be doing a serialized story on Fridays. . .

  4. Sort of like the old radio soaps, Alice? Neat 🙂 I think I’ve seen publishers like Harlequin or Kensington (can’t remember which) do serial story publication, but I think they are still all aimed at having a specific number of installments…
