Based on the questions and comments I receive, I’d guess that 90% of the readers of this blog are primarily focused on writing fiction—as in, novels. The other 10% are a mix of non-fiction, short stories, and other types of writing.
It’s a good thing to stretch out of your comfort zone every once in a while. It builds writing muscles and stretches your brain—a lot. When your brain pops back into place, it often brings new creativity back with it that you can use in your main writing project.
So today’s prompt (unless you’re primarily a poet):
Write a poem that has something to do with the season—holiday, family, winter.
If you’re primarily a poet, your prompt is:
Write a short story that has something to do with the season—holiday, family, winter.
