One of the biggest holiday traditions we celebrate in our household is the giving of handmade gifts. Whether made from found materials or items purchased from local merchants, we try to keep the focus on spending time together and thinking of one another.
Of course, this week’s prompt offered up the new phenomenon of the Elf on the Shelf as a potential starting point, though you also had the option to create your own tradition. So what did you come up with? Be sure to submit your entries via comment, link, or email by 5 pm today and encourage your friends to vote for their favorite story through the weekend using the hashtag #WOW555.
Rules can be found in the drop down menu on the WOW 555 tab. The winning story will be featured with next week’s prompt while the author gets a little well-deserved two-day promotion on social media!
Before you post your responses into the comments, remember, by doing so, you’re giving me permission to publish your stories without attribution or links until Monday. This is an attempt to keep the focus on the writing. So don’t forget to give your story a title!
The Monday post will identify all authors and include links and Twitter handles if you’ve provided them (hint: include your links and/or Twitter handles with your submission). The story with the most votes will be featured while all others will be listed by title.
Now, get those entries in!
You can either copy/paste your entry in the comments or provide a link to your story. You have until 5 pm CST.
