One-Minute Mondays is an original weekly meme where I’ll post writing prompts that consist of one or two random, out-of-the-box words. The goal is to read the prompt, set a timer to one-minute (or click the youtube timer I’ve provided below), and write the first thing that comes to mind. It’s amazing how our brains work and how we can form a connection between coffee → your favorite coffee creamer flavor is cinnamon vanilla creme → you used to have a dog named Cinnamon → now you have a dog named Pepper who just left a trail of socks from your sock drawer to her bed, because she just couldn’t decide which pair she likes best. Let your mind wander like it’s supposed to. Don’t worry about sounding perfect and making complete sense. Don’t let your pencil/pen leave the page or your fingers leave the keyboard. Don’t stop to overthink. Just write. And when your time is up, take a moment to read what you’ve written, and you may be surprised at how many potential writing prompts you’ve just created for yourself.
Photo Fridays is an original weekly meme where I’ll post writing prompts that consist of random pictures. What better way to stimulate inspiration? They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so give yourself a few moments to collect your thoughts and write them.
Six-Word Story Saturdays is an original weekly meme. A six-word story (or six-word novel) is a very short version of flash fiction. One of the most famous six-word stories is Ernest Hemingway’s “For sale: baby shoes, never worn.” My challenge to you is to write your own six-word story.
