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.
Happy Memorial Day, the unofficial first day of summer! Like most Americans, you’re probably standing over a hot grill, flipping some hamburgers and hot dogs, sipping an ice cold beer. Of course, if you’re on the east coast, your cookout probably got washed out by subtropical storm Alberto. But for those of you who aren’t gonna let a little rain ruin your day, this photo prompt is for you!
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 . . .
