Welcome to another edition of Fiction Monday!
Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness.
– Desmond Tutu
One of the most essential ingredients to living this life is hope. Without hope nothing is possible. Hope is that light that fills the soul when all we can see is darkness. The paddle that we hold on to is hope.
Hope is that bridge that emerges out of nowhere when we are in the middle of nowhere.
That one friend, that one word, that one smile that helps us see the positive side is nothing but hope.
Stories From Last Week
Keep that flame by Akshata
A few words about a game by Suzana
Thank you for sharing the stories, Akshata and Suzana.
The idea is simple – to write. 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 welcome to share poetry, non-fiction musings, or fictional pieces. The whole idea is to write. But we will continue to call this #FictionMonday, because why not!
You have time till August 21st, 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 sixtieth edition on Monday the 23rd of August.
Word Prompt– HOPE
Picture Prompt –

With all that’s happening in the world especially Afghanistan and Haiti, hope is a word I’m clinging too on behalf of those suffering so much.
Hope is the only thing we can cling on to when the world seems like a scary place!
Hope keeps us going … it is the proverbial last straw when all else has gone. That’s one thing that gives courage to the human heart. Love the prompt, Vinitha. Not sure if I can, but will definitely try to come up with something for this one.

My post for this week.
I hope that this game will go on, because is quite beautiful!
A fine weekend, Vinitha!
