I’m writing a story for a Christmas fiction project that flew like a lord a-leaping from the constantly creative mind of Jodi Cleghorn:
After a busy year with Chinese Whisperings, eMergent Publishing and Write Anything I just need a new project to get me through the festive season… so, I am offering the first nine writers to sign up the opportunity to join in a ‘mixed tape’ of short stories for Christmas. I will publish a story every two hours on the 24th of December in the lead up to Christmas Day (Eastern Australia Standard Time). I will also make an eBook version available for free download (here) midnight Christmas Day. The stories will be grouped together under the title “Mixed Tapes Volume 1: Deck the Halls” and be published in the same order as the song.
My prompt is the tenth line from ‘Deck the Halls’:
You can read the whole story behind Mixed Tapes Volume 1: Deck the Halls here.
Now all I have to do is come up with a 1,500 word story based on those six words.
