What does it mean to you? Shortest month? Leap year? Darkness and winter? Summer in the southern hemisphere?
Write A February Story
What might “February” mean to an old woman? A young man? A kid whose birthday is in Feb?
Might you write a story with a sentence for each day in February? A 28-sentence story? (or maybe 29)
What unexpected stories could you tell, with a theme of “February”?
- You should use the prompt in your story (however tenuous the connection).
- You must write the story in one 24 hr period – the faster the better.
- Post the story in the comments — if you’re brave enough.
- Find something nice to say about someone else’s story and leave a comment. Everybody needs a little support!

Just letting you know that I wrote a flash fiction based on your prompt, and have since submitted to a contest. Once I find out the results, I’ll come back and fill you in. But I wanted to thank you for the prompt. I got a lot of positive feedback on it from the writers’ website I frequent, and the story would never have been written if weren’t for your February prompt.
That’s great, Wendy! Thanks so much for sharing this—and good luck!

Oh, that was a sweet story. I loved it. I was rooting for Granny!
Thanks for ‘playing’ 🙂
