Always Winter, Never Christmas
Write me a story in a world where something is missing. It could be something physical or natural, such as daylight, gravity or bananas; or something emotional or moral – love, freedom, religion, sillyness. Whatever you want to take away, take it away.
Make it big, make it powerful: immerse yourself in the place, the characters, their lives, their thoughts. Make me believe I am there. Make me desperate to want to be there, or utterly relieved I’m not.
Make it real.
