Seeing as today is Halloween, and like I said yesterday, I don’t want to have you writing Halloween stories into November, I’m going to give you something a bit more wintry. I’m also going to give you something a bit more personal. I want you to tell me about your perfect winter escape. Getting away to a ski lodge for a weekend, curling up on your sofa watching movies with popcorn and those you love, cozying up with a giant mug of hot chocolate and a good book, anything that you would consider a great weekend for when the weather is too cold to really do anything. It can be a favourite memory or just something you’d like to do this winter or something you enjoy on your days off. Just tell me about your ideal snow day.
Obviously I want you to do it in the form of a short story, just to give you a bit more control. Just use your character(s) to describe it all. And you’ll have 1,000 words to do it. You can even use this prompt to get an idea for a scene in the novel you’re writing for NaNoWriMo. *hint hint*
You have until noon (PST) on Friday, November 6th
Write the short story and post it on your blog, website, whatever you use to share your writing online and comment with a link to it here on this post so that everyone can find it. This is also open to anyone who wants to create a poem rather than a story. So if you’re more a poet than a storyteller, feel free to join in as well.
Go write an awesome story and get back here with your link!
