Christmas Eve!

Not only is it Wednesday but it is also Christmas Eve.  Lots of people will not want to write over the holiday as they will be focusing on their families.  Lots of people will have more time to write as they will not be working.

We've decided to put the post up.  Not only do some people take the chance to write over Christmas but I am not sure that everyone who posts celebrates Christmas.  It seems a bit unfair if you don't celebrate Christmas to suddenly find things shut down on a date that has no meaning for you.  It is really important that this is an inclusive place to write.  No-one should feel they ought to do something, just that there is a chance to write about a prompt if you think it is fun.

The usual rules apply; there is a picture, a quotation and a 500 word limit to use for whatever gets sparked in your imagination.  However as it is the holidays for so many the time is extended to a fortnight.  I hope you can enjoy these.

Here is the picture.  Please credit it if you use it in your own blog.

Here is the quotation.

Rolling in the muck is not the best way of getting clean

t is really encouraging to have comments on your work and it can give people a real lift.  Sometimes it is nice to just let someone know that their writing hit the spot.  Sometimes you can give a little help with a suggestion or hint.  Please comment on the other writers as much as you feel able.  The rule with that is the quote from WB Yeats, 'I have spread my dreams under your feet; Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.'  These posts are someone's dreams.


  1. Hi :) Was wondering if this prompt is still open.
    Thanks, Aarthi.

    1. Hi Aarthi - it is indeed, so sorry about the error but I (Thomas) hadn't spotted this was a two week prompt. I hope you will still be able to contribute! The link up tool has now been updated,
