Rise and shine! Time to get out your stop watches, exercise your typing fingers, and pick your brains for some creativity.
If you’re on the US east coast, it’s 8 AM, which means if you are still in the bed, hitting that snooze button for the thirtieth time, GET UP! You’re going to be late. I know everyone hates Mondays, but let’s make use of this last minute of free time—between brushing your teeth and throwing on a wrinkly pair of pants you hope don’t make you look too much like a bum—and get motivated for this Monday morning and the week ahead.
Monday’s One-Minute Fiction challenges you to write a complete micro-fiction piece in, you guessed it, one minute, no more, no less, based on the prompt provided! Of course, you can come back to edit for grammar & spelling, but the story itself must be written in a minute.
Your prompt may be a photo, or a word, or a sentence—whatever inspires me, and hopefully inspires you too.
It’s finally October, which means the best part of the year is here: the holiday season! But hold your horses. I know they’re rushing out the Christmas decorations in the stores, and I’ll probably try to find some sweet deals on lights and ornaments while it’s still early, but here on the blog, we do things in order. First it’s Halloween and all things scary. Then it’s Thanksgiving and all things gluttonous. And finally Christmas, my favorite holiday (and not because I get presents either).
So, let’s kick things off with Halloween and this week’s scary one-word prompt . . .
Now it’s time for the rules. I don’t have many, because we all know rules are no fun, but here are the basic logistics for each challenge:
- Write your story in one minute. (Use a stop watch to keep yourself honest. 😉 )
- Post it to your blog and tag it #1MinFiction.
- Link it back to this prompt post.
And that’s it! Let’s get to writing, shall we? And…
Ready . . .
