Monday’s One-Minute Fiction: Week of March 26

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.

If you’re a lover of college hoops, maybe you’ve been keeping up with all the madness. If there’s one thing I’ve learned from years of watching the NCAA tournament, it’s that there are always some upsets along the way, and a few of these upset teams make it pretty deep in the tournament. This year, one just may go all the way to the finish line. What do we all those upset teams?


Of course, you don’t have to write a story about basketball…or a classic ABC Family type “Cinderella story” either, but who doesn’t love a good fairytale, or sports tale, or fairytale about sports? 😉

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 . . .

Set . . .


Let me know I'm not talking to myself.
