Fiction Monday – 46

Hello writers! Welcome to the forty-sixth edition of Fiction Monday.

Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed no hope at all.

~Dale Carnegie

This quote gave me hope today. Most of the time I feel everything I do – writing, learning, trying – is a waste of time. Sometimes that feeling gets tighter and tighter. But the truth is without persistence, nothing will work out. Keep trying because sometimes that’s the only way to move forward.

Hope is a by-product of persistence.

Stories From The Forty-fifth Edition

Fiction Monday

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 May 22nd 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 twenty-fifth edition on Monday the 24th of May.
