Happy New Year! Do you aspire to write more flash fiction in 2018? Want to explore how quickly an idea sparks after looking at a picture, a word, a phrase–how quickly you can develop that idea into a complete story?
Well, do I have the perfect challenge for you! And it’ll only take a minute of your time!
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.
Most of us spent the last minute of 2017 counting down as the clock ticked to 12:00AM, January 1, 2018. It made me think– What else do we count down for? Rocket launches! So while 2017 might have been a down year for some of us, let’s be lifted up by this week’s 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.
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! 😉 )
And that’s it! Let’s get writing, shall we? And…
