January 2014 | Monthly Writing Prompt


For many of us, January means snow – shoveling, horrible driving conditions, or maybe peace and quiet while it’s falling.

And that gives impetus to this month’s prompt. Write about a time you or your character felt frozen. You could either use that physically or emotionally. Feel free to create in any genre. When I recently wrote to this prompt, I wrote about my grandfather’s shtetl in Poland and what it must have looked like in winter.

Write whatever comes to you. Feel free to share!

    Years ago, yet constantly in my soul. I see still the full moon light up the snow like a miniature world made only for me.
    The brilliant colors irredeemably reminding me that somewhere in that vast of unknown human wonders; I was given the unconditional splendor of love through the frozen eternity of one look and a thus was born; the everlasting memory of star flakes sprinkled with the endless frozen rainbow that chose to reveal the beauty of moon and sun forever, for me to see what cherished natural creation I shall take with me;
    for ever into eternity.
