December Grab Bag

Full Details

Welcome to December’s grab bag of prompts, created by WtW writers! These one-liners are designed to cast you into a stream of words, no guidelines needed. In other words, there are no wrong responses. Rather, the aim is to write as much as possible without the jitters getting in the way. 

Please copy and paste the mini prompt(s) that you’re responding to into the writing field.
