Fiction Monday – 27

Hello everyone! Welcome to the first Fiction Monday of 2021 which is our twenty-seventh edition so far.

Isn’t it exciting to welcome the new year and explore the very first week? I am excited. A new year gives me the same thrill as I open a new notebook.

“One day, you will wake up and there won’t be any more time to do the things you’ve always wanted. Do it now.”

~ Paulo Coelho

That’s an excellent quote, isn’t it? We need to stop waiting for tomorrow and start doing now. Forget about getting it perfect, forget about failing, forget about criticism – just do it. Make your mistakes today, so that tomorrow or day after you will end up creating your masterpiece. Don’t let a few obstacles scare you away. Keep trying, keep failing, keep creating.

I know it is easier said than done. But I believe I am actually following my own advice. In fact, I’ve been following this very path since a couple of years now. Otherwise, why would I blog on different platforms, put up prompts every week, start a YouTube channel – when I see that not many people follow me or respond to my posts. I have make my mistakes now to keep moving forward so that one day I might create that masterpiece.

What are your thoughts?

Fiction Monday

The idea is simple – to write fiction. On Mondays, I will post the prompt here. There will be a word prompt and a picture prompt. You have one week to respond with a story. You can choose to include both the prompts in your story or just one prompt – the choice is yours.

The expected word count is between 50 and 500. From the nineteenth edition onwards I am offering something different for fiction Monday. You are also welcome to offer your poetry and non-fiction musings along with fictional pieces if that’s your preferred area. The whole idea is to write. But we will continue to call this #FictionMonday because why not!

You have time till January 9th Saturday, 2021.

Don’t forget to add the link to your story in the comments below. I will share your creations here along with the prompts for the twenty-eighth edition on Monday the 11th of January.

    1. Oh, it’s so hard to say goodbye to laziness on a cold winter morning. I admire you for showing up every week, Suzana. Thank you so much! 🙂
