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?
Stories From The Twenty-sixth Edition
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.
