Rise and shine! I know. You’re bummed that it’s Monday already. (Where did the weekend go?) But I’ve got a challenge to motivate you out of that warm bed and get your mind moving fast this early morning. 😉
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.
Do you follow Song Lyric Sunday on This Thing Call Life One Word At A Time? For the month of January, I’m taking a little inspiration from Helen’s lovely challenge. This Sunday’s theme was “comfort.” Since our last snowstorm, I’ve indulged in too much comfort food. This morning I stepped on the scale and nearly fainted! All my hard work wasted! Needless to say, I’m back on my diet. By the way, this week’s photo prompt has nothing to do with my inconsistent eating habits, but maybe someone in this photo is a little too comfortable…
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 also 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! 😉 )
Now, let’s get writing, shall we? And…
Ready . . .
