Ten Minute Tales
Set your timers! Ready? Set? Go! Ten Minute Tales is a collection of short pieces written in ten minutes flat, by members of the Victoria Point Writers Group, otherwise known as the Ten Minuters. We hope you will enjoy reading the tales, which are as diverse and entertaining as the writers themselves! More
We are the Ten Minuters and this is our anthology of short pieces, with each one written under the pump in just ten minutes. How does it work? The idea is that someone nominates a theme and each of us writes a stream of consciousness on that theme in ten minutes only and then circulates the result to the rest of the group. We don't edit the original version beyond a minor tidy-up of what emerged from the initial inspiration. None of us reads another's work until we've completed our own. There is no deadline and not everyone participates each time - other lives, unexpected demands. There have been lots of 'wow' moments: Where did those ideas come from? Why can't I be as quick writing scenes in my novel or short story? We are so different. We are so the same. We spark off each other. We all belong to the Victoria Point Writers Group. We love writing, friendship and fun. We are the Ten Minuters and these are our tales.
