Monday’s One-Minute Fiction: Week of May 21

Hello! Is it still Monday? May I borrow a minute of your time 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.

Ever feel like the weekend totally escaped you? Yesterday morning, I woke up with a start. Thinking it was Monday, I rushed to get ready for work, only to pause in front of the bathroom mirror and say to myself, “Hmmm, this weekend was really short.” That’s because it was Sunday! Unfortunately, I don’t remember a thing that happened after. There went my weekend…

Well, at least we have Monday off next week. Maybe that’ll mean I can post your #1MinFiction prompt on time for once! For now, here is the prompt for this week…


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 . . .
