A Winter Romance Contest



Summer romance's may be fleeting at times, but winter love is where the magic is. There's always something enchanting about the frost on windshields, that fluffy white snow nipping at your mittens and your nose all red before coming inside for some coco and a warm heater (or even better, a good old fashion fireplace). Winter's well known for bringing out the traditions and little children in all of us this time of year.

Prompt:


It would be simply too easy to tell you to have at writing a Winter Romance without throwing in a twist! You're inclined to write your winter romance and let your imagination's simply go with the flow, but to keep a fairly consistent flow, there's an additional section that you must take into consideration when writing. Your submission must not only focus on a winter romance, but try to also incorporate one of these cryptic ideas (up to author's interpretation):
  • Perfect Strangers
  • Nobody's Home
  • Silver Lining
  • Blackbird's Feather
  • Jingle Bells

Hey there mormonbookworm,

We could always use more prizes for our contest, ranging from features to any small number of points if you're still willing to help. (:

I'll gladly feature the winners, just remind me once they are decided.

Seeing I only have a couple days left I suppose I need to get to writing a piece if I want to enter as well. :P
