Can’t get enough fiction on a Friday? …
Yes, yes, I know it’s Monday, but there’s a purpose here, I’m getting to it, I promise.
No, no, I’m not being cruel for looking ahead to Friday when it’s only just Monday. I don’t mean to disappoint you.
Ok, ok, in honor of Mondays, and #1MinFiction, I’ll make this short— one minute in fact—because I cherish your delicate feelings so much.
Time for my one-minute advertisement. And . . .
Ready . . .
Set . . .
This Friday, and next, and every Friday in November, and December, and forever, if you enjoy it that much, join #MarquessaChallenge, a Fiction Friday writing challenge that uses song lyrics as prompts. Yes, that means you can listen to the tunes in the background as you type away. How’s that for inspiration!
Ok, minute’s up. Did I miss anything? Ah, yes. Marquessa, host of #MarquessaChallenge (did the name give it away? 😉 ), and I are teaming up this November to bring you Monday’s #1MinFiction and Friday’s #MarquessaChallenge.
Starting this Thursday, Marquessa will give you a new song lyric prompt for the Friday challenge, and I’ll be reblogging it right here on Lovely Curses (I’ve gotten a little reblog-happy lately). Your job is to write a story using that lyric, or a part of it, or if you’re just not feeling it, any part of the song that inspires you. Be sure to drop a link to your story on Marquessa’s prompt post so she can find you, because comments on my reblogs will be disabled.
And don’t forget to come back next Monday, when I’ll be continuing with my holiday-inspired #1MinFiction prompts. November is all about . . . you guessed it, THANKSGIVING! *Gobble, gobble*
If you miss my prompt posts, no worries, Marquessa’s gotcha covered. She’ll be reblogging all of my #1MinFiction prompt posts on her blog, Simply Marquessa. So go ahead and follow her, and not because I told, but because she has great content, including beautifully crafted fiction, #TribeTuesday ideas to fix your life, #WriterWednesday tips, and the occasional opportunity to shamelessly promote your own blog. So why not follow? You’ll never be dissatisfied!
And to get you ready for this Friday, let’s scream with Shawn Mendes, “There’s nothing holdin’ me back!”
