Writing Prompt:

Make a list of 5 things that come to mind when I say the word, “cold.” You could write about your favorite ice cream or a rude ex-girlfriend, or passing out cold, or giving up smoking cold turkey, etc. Pick one of the items off of your list, add a sensory detail to it (smell, taste, sound, touch, sight), and write for 10 minutes. Then post the results in the comments of this blog for the chance to win a free class (and for free likes and remembers)!
I used to live in Chicago, so I know what cold is all about. It came in many forms during a Midwestern winter, radiating from a tile basement floor, sucking all the feeling out of my toes, or freezing my eyelashes to my scarf on a short walk from the El to the office. That’s what I’ll write about. Write about the last time you felt the chill!
