Monday’s One-Minute Fiction: Week of November 6

Rise and shine! Time to get out your stop watches, exercise your typing fingers, and pick your brains for some quick creativity.

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.

This month, I’m partnering with Marquessa at Simply Marquessa to bring you #1MinFiction and her Fiction Friday song lyric challenge, #MarquessaChallenge. So be sure to stop by her blog this Friday for more fun prompts (and to build an awesome playlist too! 😉 )

Last month I kicked off a series of holiday-themed prompts. October was all about Halloween and all things scary. Can you guess what November is?

I’m sure every culture has some form of a Thanksgiving holiday. In the States, we celebrate ours on the fourth Thursday in November. We gather together with family and loved ones, express our thanks for our many blessings, watch football, and stuff our faces ’til our belt buckles pop! So, in honor of all the eating that will surely be happening this coming November 23rd, here is your one-word, Thanksgiving-themed 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 . . .

Set . . .

Write!

    1. Ah, November. The month when all writers crawl up under their rocks with notepad, pen, computer, maybe a few snacks, and don’t emerge until Dec. 1! Good luck with Nano! I hope you have time to breathe, at least. 😉
