Welcome to the ninth edition of Fiction Monday.
“Write what disturbs you, what you fear, what you have not been willing to speak about. Be willing to be split open.” — Natalie Goldberg
One of the mistakes I make is this – withholding from opening up. I fear that when I let the protagonist’s thoughts flow in, it might be mistaken as my thoughts and experiences. I know, a writer should break away from such chains if he/she wants to be a writer in its truest sense. I’m trying through these flash pieces to shed my inhibitions. I would love to know if you have any such barriers when you write. Please share with me in the comments.
Stories From The Eighth Edition
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 September 5th Saturday, 2020.
