Monday’s One-Minute Fiction: Week of October 16

Rise and shine! Time to get out your stop watches, exercise your typing fingers, and pick your brains for creativity.

If you’re on the US east coast, it’s 9 AM, which means yet another Monday lost to eight dreadful hours spent in the office (unless you actually like your job . . . yeah, right).

I know everyone hates Mondays, but let’s start this Monday off right, with some quick thinking, some quick typing, and hopefully, lots of fun!

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.

Your prompt may be a photo, or a word, or a sentence—whatever inspires me, and hopefully inspires you too.

All October long, I’m giving you Halloween-themed prompts! This week’s photo prompt may remind you of a certain circular horror movie…

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 . . .
