Happy Friday. Whether you’re in the midst of holiday celebrations or enjoying the remaining days of 2019, I hope you’ve had a wonderful week. Mine has been filled with family, good food, and maybe a jigsaw puzzle or two.
Here on the blog, we’re in the midst of our annual Christmas Week Short Story Challenge. Several of the Eight Ladies have already posted their stories and there are a few more yet to come. All of you blog-readers are welcome to participate as well (the story prompt and words are included below). You can post your own story (or a link to your story) in the comments below on this post or on any of the upcoming Short Story posts.
The rules of the Challenge are simple – write a short story based on the specified prompt and include at least three of the random words on the list; extra points for including more than three words and extra points with sparkles for Holiday references.
What if: Your character received an anonymous/mysterious/unexpected gift?
As always, feel free to interpret the “What if” any way you choose (or ignore it completely) if your story-muse takes you in a different direction.

Whatever length story you want to write – that’s exactly the length we’re looking for.
Happy writing to all!
