Monday’s One-Minute Fiction: Week of December 25

Merry Christmas! Do you have time between unwrapping presents for a quick flash fiction exercise?

Time is of the essence, and I’m only asking for one minute!

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 challenge, #LyricalFictionFriday. Be sure to stop by her blog this Friday for more fun prompts (and to build an awesome playlist too! 😉 )

For some people, Christmas is all about . . . PRESENTS! As much as I’d loved to rant about the subject, I’ll save you from the sermon and give you this week’s photo prompt…

By the way, I’ll be posting my responses to the One-Minute Fiction prompts on Sundays now! So the story inspired by the above photo will go up on 12/31. This way makes it easier on my blogging schedule, which often gets crowded on Mondays. Besides, I love reading your stories first!

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 . . .

    1. On Mondays after midnight, I’ll start posting the prompts. On Sundays after midnight I’ll be posting my #1minfiction in response to the last week’s prompt– if that makes sense, I think I just confused myself. 😉

  2. Its Christmas! I have no gift to unwrap. However, I am unwrapping some thoughts that I have for the days ahead. No resolutions just activites that remind me that life is a gift. Merry Christmas to All and to all Good Sight.

    Between all the hustle and bustle today, you have ONE minute to do what you love…which is “write”! Come on, drop that gift and pick up that pen!
