San Francisco Writer's Grotto Prompts

Things That Happen In A Second

A list of things that can happen in one second:

The tick of a clock’s hand
The inhale or exhale of taking a breath
A reaction to something surprising
A moment of impact
The act of collision
The turn of a page
The beat of a heart
Experiencing an epiphany
Or a Eureka! moment
The burst of a popped balloon
The difference in time between the end of Monday and the beginning of Tuesday
The blink of an eye
The beginning of the end
The length of time it takes to experience 1/60 of a minute.
