Writing Prompt: Ahhh, Winter!

Posted by at 8:15 am in Writing Prompt | Permalink

Writingprompt_winter After a strange summer and a mild autumn here in New York, December has arrived and it's finally starting to feel like winter. For those of you that don't like the cold, I'm sorry. . . but for those of you (like me) who do, then yay! It’s finally winter!

While I find limitless opportunities for inspiration, it seems that the changing of the seasons often makes me pause, reflect, and write a poem or a short story (or in this case, a blog entry!). So let's do a writing prompt to celebrate the arrival of winter. In the comments, fill in the blanks – and hopefully you'll be inspired to expand your comment into a bigger piece of art!

This winter, I plan to ____. And even if the weather turns colder than ____, I'll still do it, because I have ___ to keep me warm!

My take?

This winter, I plan to train for a marathon. And even if the weather turns colder than the frozen lunch I brought from home, I'll still do it, because I have a Snuggie to keep me warm!
