Winter Has Arrived

Winter has set in with a blanket of lovely white snow. Depending on which side of the frosty window you find yourself, winter may be either a winter wonderland or a nightmare of slush and ice.

Now is the perfect time to experience winter first hand. Bundle up–or don’t–and step outside into the elements. Listen. What sounds of winter do you hear? Reach out and touch winter’s splendors. What is the texture of winter, the temperature in your hand, the weight of winter? How does winter taste on your tongue? Use your sense of sight to locate something you’ve never noticed before. Observe it. Savor your sensory experiences to use in a writing prompt. In 250 words or less create a winter setting for a poem, short story or novel.

Don’t forget to visit Wordwrites Guild on January 24 at 6 p.m. in the Ewbank Room of the Lawrenceburg Public Library. Wordwrites is open to all writers regardless of level or skill. There are no dues, only a sharing of stories, poems, ideas, and techniques.
