December Writing Prompts

writing prompts

I don’t know about you, but I’m counting down the days until the holidays! I’ve already slowed things down so I can connect more with the people who matter most, and so I can focus on creativity. Gift-making, cookie-baking, and lazy evenings by the fire – this is what the start of Winter means to me. Here are some writing prompts for December to cozy up with as the cold sets in.

  1. It was Sam’s first night keeping watch and it was incredibly boring until he saw a purple spark from Prof. Blues lab. He also heard a terribly loud noise which can be resemled by loud noises of bombs,crackers etc.Sam was so surprised,that he slipped from the edge of cliff!! After a moment or maybe two,he ran to Prof. Blues lab.He was so delighted when he opened the door,that he was almost exploding!Before him was a huge machine. Prof.Blues had developed another very useful machine for the village.The professor was lying on the floor,too tired enough to stand after so much of hard work.Sam was a kind boy who helped others.So he helped Prof. Blues to his bed and left him for some rest.Before leaving, Sam asked him’Prof.Blues what kind of machine is this?’Prof.Blues smiled and said ‘Child,this is a machine that can prepare hot food for the village,and I have an important duty for you,Sam!’ ‘What is it?’ said Sam,very excited.’You have to annouce the whole village about my machine.’said Prof. Blues.Then Sam annouced the village about it and then the villagers had a warm and tasty December.
