It’s December. In a lot of the world, it’s a month dominated by Christmas, with all the traditions and shopping that go along with that. It’s also a time when many people get together with family to celebrate the holiday.
Families are interesting since we don’t get to choose ours and they can either be our biggest allies or biggest antagonists. They are one of the biggest sources of conflicts in stories, since family is something that almost everyone can relate to.
Story Prompt: December 5, 2022
Write a tone-switched story about family during the holidays.
Tone-switching is a fun writing exercise. Think of a story and but once you have it, change the tone of the story. If it’s a serious story, make it funny. If it’s light-hearted, make it creepy, etc. It makes you look closely at what goes into setting the tone of a story and how to change it.
