I don't know if it will work or not, but hey. A big part of the holiday season are the happy surprises that seem to pop up during the month. So let's go for it. Something surprising both for me and for you.
A story written during 2016 to your specification. A writing prompt--BUT you have to do some of the work too.
Now, as I type these words, I'm filled with doubt. I'm not a huge fan of writing prompts, to be quite honest, but they can be great a great way to flex creative muscles and readers seem to love them, so...
I found the picture below (by Conrado licensed through Shutterstock) and I was taken by the mood and the setting and the pensive but relaxed expression on the face of the model. I thought...I want to write a story about that moment.
So I will. I will write a short story and dedicate it to the person who comes up with the plot scenario that suits this photo and most appeals to me. So, again, a short story written during the course of next year, and one of you gets to pick what it's about. Write your ideas in the comment section below and--assuming any of them click for me--I will write that story to your (general) specifications.
If nothing else, I bet a lot of you will have fun with these imaginings over your morning coffee (or evening cocktail)!
