Christmas Eve makes me think of thresholds, standing at a border, knowing that the dawn will bring anticipated, but unknown changes.

What other thresholds do we cross?

Of what significance are the moments just before you close your eyes on the known, understanding that you will wake to the new?

How does this writing prompt advent calendar work?

    I left the house half an hour ago to go down the road to buy some milk, a necessary chore. We’ve had a quiet day and it was the first time I’ve been out today. The sky was shimmering, I could feel silent music bouncing from cloud to cloud, the air was a-fizz with magic. The shop was almost empty but there was magic there too. By the time I came back in over our threshold, I was so bursting with hope and love that I was grinning like a toothpaste advertisement.

    Thank you so much for creating these writing prompts! Would love to share with my women’s writing group tomorrow (with full credit to you!). Can’t wait to start them myself, two years later 🙂

      Sure, Charity. I’m so pleased to hear that they will live on. Thank you for reading and sharing! Perhaps I will design a new set for next year. In the meantime, enjoy and write well. I’d love to hear how it goes for you.
