Rise and shine! Time to get out your stop watches, exercise your typing fingers, and pick your brains for some creativity.
If you’re on the US east coast, it’s 8 AM, which means if you are still in the bed, hitting that snooze button for the thirtieth time, GET UP! You’re going to be late. I know everyone hates Mondays, but let’s make use of this last minute of free time—between brushing your teeth and throwing on a wrinkly pair of pants you hope don’t make you look too much like a bum—and get motivated for this Monday morning and the week ahead.
Monday’s One-Minute Fiction challenges you to write a complete micro-fiction piece in, you guessed it, one minute, no more, no less (but if you need less than a minute to write a story, you are definitely a pro), based on the prompt provided!
Your prompt may be a photo, or a word, or a sentence—whatever inspires me, and hopefully inspires you too.
In my August update post, I promised some Alaska themed prompts. So without further ado, here is this week’s one-word (or phrase, depending on how you look at it) prompt . . .
Forget Me Not
Forget Me Not! Alaska’s state flower! And no, Alaska, I could never forget 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.
And that’s it! Let’s get to writing, shall we? And…
Ready . . .
Set . . .
