All right, we're somehow a week away from Christmas day. I know. Don't ask me, I have no idea how we've managed to arrive here.
Anyway. I like to use the blog to do a little countdown to the big day and I've finally decided how I'm going to do that this year. This time around we're getting a week's worth of Christmas movie titles as our prompts. Your writing doesn't have to do anything with the movies themselves, just their titles.
You can weave all your responses over the next seven days together into one tale, or just let each one stand on its own. I think I'm going the latter route, as this is a busy enough time of year as it is.
Also: I had been considering doing something else, but it's feeling like a bad time of year to go that other route. Definitely at another time though.
So let us begin the countdown to Santa's arrival by writing two haiku about: How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Or, if you're desiring something a little more straightforward, simply about: the Grinch.
He schedules late nights,
weekends too. If he can't go
home, neither can you.

he'll steal them all. No store's safe
when he's at the mall.
