Winter Activities

I hope your prompting is going well this week. Are you feeling the love in the air, or something else? Everyone I’ve spoken with up North can’t wait to thaw out. January doesn’t want to let go easily as our temperatures dipped below zero every night this week.

On the bright side, my husband pointed out how the sunlight was still out. My eyes went up the light orange that hugged the fading sky blue, and I smiled. The dark shade of night didn’t suddenly drop after 4:00 pm and I could make out more than shadows at 5:00 pm. This a big deal, and marker that we’re getting closer to seeing more daylight.

I love curling up in blankets during the winter and watching the landscapes change from inside of a window. I used to love the outside more when I was fatter because I had more blubber to deal with the cold. I would brave winter sports like skiing and skating but I’m like a cat on ice. A deer on paved roads or roller skates. My graceful movements happen on the dance floor or in water.

Yet, I’m still here during the winter hibernating. Maybe I’ll get back into the winter scene with more practice at outdoor activities but it will be a toe dip of a try. Do you have any favorite activities at different times of the year?

I hope you do because you’re going to use one activity for a writing prompt. If your mind is going blank, then write about a winter bonfire, snowball fight, or cups of hot cocoa. Think February romance, a late night date under the winter stars. I used a winter walk for a prompt last year. Just pick one and write for 5-10 minutes.

Most posts are Monday through Friday!

I’m an author in Minnesota who started out writing and illustrating Children’s books. I’ve published poetry and adult Romance Novels. I created my website and social media to reach out to other writers because the process can be lonely. I wanted to reach out to readers, writers, and those with a dream of finishing “that” novel. I share the advice of other writers and the tools I use to create my stories.
