I hate being cold but I LOVE bright frosty mornings.
They’re magical—like an elf has emoted all over the place overnight, coating everything in sparkles.
And the crunching! Lush.
So: write about frosty mornings. Do you like frost? Hate it? What about the patterns on glass? How do you scrape your car windows? Get close up to an ice crystal—what does it look like?
Sometimes just a word or an association is enough to get you started writing.
Set a timer for 5 minutes, and just write about frosty mornings. See where it takes you.
