Writing Prompt!

The sun is setting earlier, the snow is teasing its residency, and the space heaters have been put on full blast; WINTER IS COMING.

The most dreaded and cherished season in the North East. Loved and hated in equal measure. While it brings the Holidays, and snowmen, and eggnog, it also brings with it black ice, frost bite, and delayed trains.

What’s something else that you also love and hate? What brings up complex reactions from you?

Try to write a metaphor comparing something you feel mixed emotions for to winter. Maybe you’ll find it leans more one way than the other. Try to find something both redeemable and despicable in both.

Then use that metaphor in a poem or a short story!
