Monday Creative Writing Exercise because it’s a good way to start the week: getting in the mood to write FLASH FICTION

music medium_2586271674(1)

None of these exercise ideas might actually produce a flash fiction story you would want to call your own, but I hope they get you into the mood for writing tight.

Write a love story in five sentences. Do a word count – cut it down by 25%

Write a sci fi story in two sentences

Tune to a music radio station. Tell the story of the music playing in one sentence

 Write a description of someone very tired in 50 words. You’re not allowed to use the words:- tired, exhausted, sleep or work

 In one sentence write a description of someone very happy walking along the road.

    Everyone go visit Simone’s story Colbalt Blue – link above.

    She says that these exercises inspired her….Not sure about that but her story is an enchanting example of flash fiction that makes time travellers of us all…happy to take small crumbs of unjustified credit.
