Write a Christmas story or poem, but twist it up with an unexpected genre. It could be horror, western, romance, even sci-fi.

Christmas is a great starting point to mix your writing up with because it has clear traditions and themes that you can work into just about any setting.

It doesn’t matter how ridiculous the plot or the characters are (in fact, the weirder the better!) because this exercise is all about having fun.

Writing is about imagination after all, so think of this prompt as a way to let loose from the serious side of skill and technique.
