Hello writers! Welcome to the thirty-seventh edition of Fiction Monday.
“Some rules are nothing but old habits that people are afraid to change.”
~ Theresa Fowler
It’s okay to question a rule if that rule doesn’t serve you any purpose. Often we tend to follow somebody’s rules without pausing to ask why. We also accept these habits someone else formed as part of a tradition. There is nothing wrong in asking why.
But, I have been labeled a rebel because I question and bend the rules to suit my needs. So be warned questioning comes with consequences. But without questioning, we will end up using a template of the world that is outdated and outgrown the current inhabitants of the world.
Do you agree?
Stories From The Thirty-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 as #FictionMonday because why not!
You have time till March 20th 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-eighth edition on Monday the 22nd of March.
