Welcome to the eighth edition of Fiction Monday.
My standard answer is ‘I don’t know where they come from, but I know where they come to, they come to my desk.’ If I’m not there, they go away again, so you’ve got to sit and think. – Philip Pullman
The truth is, I’m not confident in writing fiction. Writing these bite sized fictional pieces help me in building my confidence, bit by bit. Here are three stories from last week to start your week.
Stories From The Seventh Edition
Road to recovery by Aseem Rastogi
Russo by Shilpa Gupte
Come On In! by Vinitha
Please do give these stories a read. These are some beautiful slices of story telling in just a few words. It might inspire you to write a tale or two 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 250.
You have time till August 29th Saturday, 2020.
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 ninth edition on Monday the 31st.
Word Prompt– FAINT
Picture Prompt –
