Thursday Writing Prompt No. 126


Writing can be a lonely business, but it’s necessary to have some time to yourself in order to sort out what you’re working on and just get words down. You don’t have to go to a snowy mountaintop, although if the lodge is serving hot chocolate that might be a good thing. I’ve finished another round of edits to my novel and sent it off to beta readers.

This week’s Thursday Writing Prompt focuses on snow, for no apparent reason other than I’ve used this screen shot of my Guild Wars 2 character, Freya Stohrm, as an illustration for this post. So, write about snow. Think about how the atmosphere feels when it’s snowing and try to describe that in a paragraph. If you live somewhere in the tropics, write about how you would feel if it suddenly snowed in your hometown, or describe how looking at photos of snow makes you feel.

The core of this week’s prompt is setting, so no matter how you approach the subject, the snow should be an integral part of the landscape you’re writing about.
