christmas-1791778_1920As you enjoy the seasonal festivities on Thursday evening, you might want to share your creative take on this month’s writing prompt:

Winter Holiday Lost and Found

If you are familiar with WWG’s monthly writing prompts, it will come as no surprise that the word count is limited to 500 words, and the prompt is simply a starting point – you can incorporate the exact words in your piece, or you’re welcome to use the words purely as inspiration. Whether you prefer to write a poem, a short-short story, lyrics to a song – perhaps with bells ringing in the background – the choice is yours.
