Inventive Writing Prompt Round-up #22

Here we are again, having survived (I hope) Christmas 2014.  Maybe you're like me and still a bit foggy from so much going on and, oh yeah, the sugar content of every single thing we eat this time of year.  Maybe, like me, you're feeling a bit disconnected from your writing.  If not, more power to you. What's your secret?  If so, here you go–my latest collection of writing prompts.

But first, I would like to let you know that you can get a ton more prompts (like over a hundred of them and counting) on my Tumblr blog.  AND, do not forget that you can download a free book of prompts over at Noisetrade.  (And read more about it here.)

Okay then.  Here we go:

#150 The best time of day is ____________, because ________________, duh.

#151  Only three days until Christmas and so much left to do.  But for her, it wasn’t last minute Christmas gifts and activities that she obsessed about it.  Rather, it was…..

 #152  Alone.  He had never liked it, but being alone at Christmas was the worst. Now, with just two days to go until the big day, he determined to change his situation.  The first thing he did was….

 #153  Silent night, holy night.  All is calm, all is bright.  Or is it?  What is going on in the dark of this holy eve?

 #154  Write about what is happening in the photo below from the penguin's point of view.



#155 The day after.  What will you do with that ugly dress your husband gave you?  How will you return it without hurting his feelings? 

#156 Her brain felt cloudy and vague.  Too many Christmas cookies. Too much wine. To make herself fell better, she….

 That's it!  The next prompt round-up will be in 2015.  Crazy, man.  In the meantime, I'd love to hear what you did on Christmas.  Was it good?  Fun? Any crazy stories to share?

    Too many Christmas cookies. Not enough wine. I had a great Christmas. I drank wine. I had a glass of Malibu coconut rum (Captain Morgan’s is better but the liquor store I always use for Christmas didn’t have it). This is the time to write Christmas stories. Write them, clean them up, submit them in July. I know, Charlotte, you have a great one in Christmas is a Season! 2008.

    That’s how we met, isn’t it, J.D.? Because we both had stories in that anthology? So grateful for that. And the story you reference is part of a novel that I finished but never did anything with. I’m thinking about indie publishing it this year.

    Thank you so much! I appreciate you beyond words!

    One of these days I’ll have time to write again… (great prompts! And I love the penguin photo!)
