#5MinuteFiction: Week 146 Contest time!

What inspires you to start a new story? Is it a song, an event, an image? For Christina Vourcos, our guest judge, inspiration comes from everywhere. For example, in a common phrase:


Today’s prompt: Base your story on the phrase “Life is a song, love is the music”

A Few Notes:

  • In the interest of time and formatting, it’s best to type straight into the comment box or notepad (the comment link is just below the title). It’s also smart to do a quick highlight and copy before you hit “post” just in case the internets decide to eat your entry. If your entry doesn’t appear right away, email me.
  • I reserve the right to remove hate speech or similar but I’m not too picky about the other stuff.
  • This is all for fun and self-promotion. So be sure to put your twitter handle at the end of your post and a link to your blog if you have one.

Go, go, go! You’ve got until 8:45p EST (on the dot. Yes, I’m serious) to submit your entry in the comments section of this post.

I’ll see you back here at 10p EST with the finalists!

My entire life is full of writing and creativity. Whether copywriting for exciting new projects, crafting web content for creative companies, ghostwriting, editing, coaching, or exploring my own imagination as a fiction writer, I am constantly engaged in stretching boundaries and exploring possibilities.

  1. Looks like the prompt was a bit too challenging this week. If you have a response to the prompt that you would like to post later, please share. We’d love to see your ideas.
