Monday’s One-Minute Fiction: Week of September 4

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 keeping with the Alaska theme, here is this week’s photo prompt . . .

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 . . .

  1. Bummer, I thought I was gonna get to read a piece of your fiction for a minute. I can’t write anything decent in a minute, I’ll admit it right now. That would mean 15 seconds of writing and 45 seconds of editing and it takes me more ‘n 15 seconds to come up with an opening line. Much less a middle and an ending.

    But I’ll read your short fiction. Look out, I’m coming in…

    1. I think I cheat. LOL. I come up with the story in my head first. Then write it 10-15 times until I can get it under a minute. And if I can’t, I split it up and write it 20sec. segments until I get it. Too much time on my hands, I think. Haha!

Let me know I'm not talking to myself.
