Hello everyone! Welcome to the thirtieth edition of Fiction Monday.
“You will never run out of words!”
I wish somebody said that to me long long ago. The first time I wrote a poem I was in the 6th grade. I wrote again in the 9th and 10th grades. Something came to me and I wrote poems out of it. My writing was sporadic and I wrote when that compulsion made me do so. And whenever I wrote it was in poetry format.
I never shared those scribbles with anyone. Because I feared what if this is a one-time thing. What if words never come to me again? Later I did share my creations when those compulsions keep coming back.
But I wish I knew that words would never run out to those who are on the lookout for them. Words come to all of us in the same way, I believe. Some of us listen to those words and put them on a paper to revisit.
Words may run out – I fear that still. When I write a fictional piece or a poem, I am sure it’s a fluke and it might never happen again.
But that’s never the truth. Sometimes inspiration strikes randomly, sometimes when I sit with the intention of writing it happens.
You will never run out of words. All we need is a pen and paper (any preferred writing medium will do).
Stories From The Twenty-ninth Edition
Waiting for the tram by Suzana
Last week we had only one entry. Thank you Suzana for always showing up. I promise to write for this week’s prompt.
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 30th 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 thirty-first edition on Monday the 1st of February.
