Weekend Productivity: Day 5 of the Writing Challenge

Happy weekend, everyone! I hope you’re enjoying yourself and making time for some writing along with everything else on your to-do list. If you’re participating in the December Writing Challenge, you should have a bit of writing time scheduled already, but even if you’re not, take a few minutes for yourself and indulge your creativity.

People-watching during the holidays can be a great way to spark a new idea, or just practice getting descriptions down on paper. If you’re out shopping or at a holiday event, grab a seat and a warm drink and spend a few minutes writing down what you see. Are people in festive clothes? Struggling with shopping bags? Humming Christmas carols? Imagine where they’re headed or where they just came from, and write up a scene to go with it. Making time to write doesn’t always have to mean adding to a WIP. Sometimes a few minutes on a fun writing exercise is all you need to keep the pump primed. Enjoy!
