Monday’s One-Minute Fiction: Week of October 9

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.

All October long, I’m giving you Halloween-themed prompts! Are you one who often yells at the screen while watching a scary movie? Those scary movie characters, they’re not the brightest when it comes to avoiding getting murdered, are they? Then again, if they did make good judgement calls, there wouldn’t be much of a movie. So here’s to screaming again and again to the serial killer’s next victim . . .

don’t open the door!

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 . . .

Set . . .

Write!
