2021-Micro-02 – “Doors”
Our first Micro Fiction contest was a huge success! We all discovered how amazing stories can be when they are limited to 100 words or less. Somehow the word limitation seemed to increase everyone’s creativity!
Our second Micro Fiction prompt is “Doors”. The picture we’ve chosen to represent this prompt is most intriguing, with its dramatic colors and implied mystery. Your story does not have to be about this particular door, but can be about any door, or even just the concept of door!
When you consider your own imagined door, you might ask questions: What stories lie behind my door? Where did it come from? Where does it lead? Is it a way out, or a way in? To the fertile writer’s mind, there are infinite possibilities on the other side of every door.
We invite you to enter a story with 100 words or less inspired by our “Doors” prompt. We look forward to all your exciting, unique ideas!
