One Minute Fiction- April 14

Cranny is hosting this challenge

What’s the ”One Minute Fiction” challenge about?

Easy. Each week I’ll provide a prompt to inspire you to write a very short story. The idea is to manage to type your whole story in a minute or less. Of course, you can think about it before hitting the keyboard, and you can take all your time to edit it afterwards…

Just make sure to tag your story with #1MinFiction, and create a pingback to my week’s challenge post, so I can easily find it!

So, here is this week’s picture;



They met each other after a long time. Everyone looked forward with great anticipation to the get-together. But when they all sat together, everyone was so used to being on their devices that they forgot to interact with each other.

The rules of social interaction needed to be learned once again, after a year of isolation.

    1. Yes, Angie this unfortunately is the case now. The other day my grandson remarked that out of the four people sitting in the family room, only he was on his device! His time on iPad had run out, otherwise he would have been on it too, watching YouTube.

  1. This picture brings back memories of the little street cafes in Europe. My sister and I many years ago did a tour of Europe together. I loved the idea of being able to stop and the street and enjoy the life around you.

  2. This is an all too true story. I know when we get the family together my niece, sister, and daughter all tend to be nose stuck in phone. The conversations just aren’t there like they should be as my boyfriend and my sister’s boyfriend usually get lost in TV. It is really quite sad.
