Inventive Writing Prompt Round-up #20

Here's the latest collection of prompts from my Tumblr blog.  And, as always, you can find more prompts right here on this very blog.

#136  Even as an adult she still got as excited was a kid at Christmas.  What she liked best about the season was …..

#137  She grew up in a poor, dysfunctional family and had never celebrated his birthday before.  So when her husband asked her what she wanted to do on his special day, she said….

#138  The morning after.  The morning after the big win, the big party, the goal accomplished, the mountain climbed, the book completed, the awards ceremony, the election.  How do you (or your character) feel?  What do you do next?

#139  When there’s a ton of work to be done, is your character a sprinter or a marathoner?  Does he work at it on a regular schedule, steadily finishing things?  Or does he do it in manic spurts, staying up all night to get things done?

#140  She did the crossword puzzle every morning with breakfast.  Does you main character like puzzles?  Games?  Or, like some, does she hate them?

#141  The lights went out and everything fell silent.  She was all alone in the dark.

#142  The train whistled as it pulled away from the city where she had fallen in love.  She sat by the window with her cheek pressed against the glass and watched until she could no longer see the station, or him, standing there waving.

That's it!  How's your writing going this holiday season?  Are you able to keep up with it, or is it all falling to s$%^ in the press of festive winter activities?
