December Creative Writing Prompts
If you’re like me, you’ve been neck deep in projects (and maybe finals) and have been running yourself ragged the past few months. But its December now, and that means the year is almost over, and it’s time to relax; breaks are important, especially with so many cool holiday things in the near future! So, here’s your chance to unwind, add to your journal, and strengthen your writing with some (sort of) December themed writing prompts.
