About this blog – I established this blog to provide a forum for the free exchange of information and ideas on the subject of fiction favorites. The primary goal of this blog is to entertain the reader with short items on a daily basis. The week has the following structure:
Sunday is a View of the Neighborhood where I present some photos of my community that could be of interest.
Monday is Top Ten Things Not to Do. A list of stuff that we should never do under the circumstance described.
Tuesday is for Anything Possible and usually is reserved for a story prompt from a fellow blogger named Keith Channing
Wednesday Story Day is the continuation of a serial
Thursday is A Little Personal. I discuss an item that is personal to me.
Friday is a celebration of the end of the workweek and has a Haiku.
Saturday is a prompt from Linda Hill and is titled Stream of Consciousness Saturday.
I want to make clear that Fiction Favorites is a blog dedicated to humor. The stories are told in dialog without tags so that the reader can become part of the action. Not everyone can read these kinds of stories and appreciate them, but hopefully, you are one that can.

About John W Howell – I have been working in business for over forty years and now have the time to work in special areas of interest. My passion has always been to create compelling stories of fiction. I have authored five novels. The first novel is still in manuscript form and is a door stop in the laundry room. The second is a fiction thriller novel titled My GRL and has been launched by Martin Sisters Publishing. I have just launched my third novel in October titled His Revenge My fourth is titled Our Justice and is in the editing stage and should be published mid-year 2016. The fifth is also in the editing stage and titled Consequences of Childhood I also write short stories and have had a number published. My short story Cold Night Out won an honorable mention in the Writers Digest Popular Fiction Contest. I dabble in poetry and have published a few. I am trying new forms and will sneak out of the dressing room and into the water once I think one is worth reading. I am primarily a Haiku fan. The one time I read a piece to a person, their only comment was, “it doesn’t rhyme.”
I will continue to write, and hopefully, this blog will provide some entertainment and an interesting thought or two.
I live by the Gulf of Mexico with my wife Molly and an assortment of loving rescue pets.
