Monday’s One-Minute Fiction: Week of May 14

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.

After an extremely long winter (thanks a lot, Mr. Groundhog) we seem to have skipped spring altogether and nosedived right into summer. Yesterday it was 90 degrees (Fahrenheit) in my city, and it’s only forecast to get hotter today. I hate to see how temperatures in July and August will look!

Of course, today’s prompt could be referring to the weather or someone’s boiling temper

be cool

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 . . .

Set . . .

Write!
