And here is the linky for this month just waiting for your entries.  You can also add your link in the comments if you prefer.

So my entry this month is based on a true story, that I have seen unfold over the past six months or so from my perch on the shelf. I have titled it…

Her eyes snapped open in response to the silence, already searching for the digital clock display.  5.42am.  Bolting upright in panic, her eyes took in the steady rise and fall of the cot blanket.

We’d love to see more new mini-fic-fans joining us, so have a go or tell your friends and lets bring tiny writing to the masses.  For those who just love to be prepared, next month’s prompt is…
