It’s Christmas Day!

Use the writing prompt below to inspire you to write a scene.

You and your family are going to have Christmas dinner with your long-lost brother who found you a couple of months earlier. This will be the first time you’ve met. You know very little about him other than that your parents gave him up for adoption before they got married and before you were born. Describe the events of the day from the moment you meet until you go home.

The Search

Use the writing prompt below to inspire you.

Your brother has been missing for six years. Every once in a while, you receive a postcard that lets you know he’s still alive. The last postcard arrived almost two years ago from Vermont. You set out to find him so that your mother can have some peace of mind. How do you conduct the search? What do you find?
