Write A Thanksgiving Story (365 Creative Exercises & Prompts, Day 19)

Write A Thanksgiving Story / Day 19/ 365 Days Of Creativity / Collectivitea

Welcome to Week 3, Day 19, of the 365-Day Creativity Challenge!  We are just a few days away from Thanksgiving and the creative exercises this week are centered around giving thanks.  Day 19’s prompt is to write a Thanksgiving story. Keep it short. Have a clear beginning, middle, and end. You decide whether it’s going to be a comedy, drama, romance, or a combination of all three. Or none of the above. It just has to be centered around Thanksgiving, the occasion, or the spirit of giving thanks. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never written a story or are an expert writer. The idea is to get your imagination working overtime. I found this awesome quote by American writer and columnist Franklin P. Adams, Having imagination, it takes you an hour to write a paragraph that, if you were unimaginative, would take you only a minuteYour time starts now, and it’s up to you whether you will take a minute or an hour!

My Day 19 prompt: Suffice to stay that for this exercise I am trying to write a short romantic story about a couple who first meet each other at a Thanksgiving dinner hosted by mutual friends. Think of Love Actually, except with Thanksgiving! I am going to work on it tonight. To share how you are interpreting these creative prompts or following the challenge, please use the hashtag #ctea365 on social media and /or leave me a comment below. Have a wonderful week!  –  Priya

 Background: Welcome! We are now at Day 19 of the 365 Day Creativity Challenge, and I am excited and happy to have you here!  I use the terms ‘creative’, ‘creativity’  or ‘creative exercise’ very loosely. While they have very specific meanings within the art or business worlds, I define it as any activity that allows us to access an inner stillness. Where the mind’s incessant chatter decreases, and for that short period of time, we are in the presence of a magnificent quietude. Where we feel joyful and recharged as if accessing a powerful, bountiful source of imagination and ideas. It makes what we do- draw, write, paint, work in a science lab, dance, sing, play music, photography etc. etc.- a spiritual experience. It has nothing to do with talent and skill level, and everything to do with joy. Whether you take part in all 365 days, or 7, 21, or 30 days, or join us when you can, I hope you will take the time to relax, slow down, and be your joyous self! Want more details? You may want to read this introduction to the 365-Day Creativity Challenge. Just as a reminder, it really helps to have a dedicated journal or notebook because you will see  a continuous record of your creativity expanding and changing as you devote time to it every day. You will also be creating a year’s worth of creative work. As you work through the prompts, write down other things that strike you because you may want to revisit these ideas. Have a wonderful day and I will see you tomorrow!
