Monday’s One-Minute Fiction: Week of November 13

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! 😉 )

All November long, I’m giving you Thanksgiving-themed prompts! 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, to continue the feast we started last week, today’s Thanksgiving prompt is…

pass the… 

What side dishes are you passing around your dinner table this Thanksgiving? Mashed potatoes, gravy, mac and cheese, stuffing (technically “dressing” if it’s not stuffed inside the turkey), collard greens? Is it making your hungry just thinking about it?

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!
