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.
While in Alaska, I refused to watch the movie Titanic. I didn’t need that kind of negativity on my psyche while on a ship in waters surrounded by icebergs. That being said, here is this week’s phrase prompt . . .
women and children first
In the unlikely event of an emergency, when we have to abandon ship and board the life boats, even 104 years later, women and children still disembark first. Good thing the only problem we had were rocky waves!
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 . . .
