Rise and shine! May I borrow a minute of your morning for a quick flash fiction challenge? How quickly does an idea spark and develop into a story when you only have a picture, a word, or a phrase…and one minute to write?
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.
Getting acquainted with a new job, new digs, and a new city has made it extremely difficult to keep up with a regular blogging schedule, so please forgive me for missing #1MinFiction last week! If we had a prompt, it would have been something zombie related (since last Monday was the final day for the April A to Z Challenge). You could say today’s photo prompt is zombie-esque. I mean, the ripped shirt, the flash of nipple, the dying flowers…
Or maybe it’s just a stretch. You decide!
And if you want to read my “zombie apocalypse” inspired A to Z serial story, read it here, starting with A is for Accessory to Murder!
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.
Let’s get writing, shall we? And…
Ready . . .
