During Christmas vacation, while Bethany and I were sitting around eating bon bons and watching old Christmas movies, we somehow motivated our lazy selves to join a fiction swap
over at Wickfield.
Like gifts of tacky sweaters or awkward lingerie... swapping stories for Christmas carries some potential for embarrassment and blushing.
Bethany's story prompt: "A story set in the 1930's (late or early, it doesn't matter), with whatever characters, based on the song Brielle by Sky Sailing."
Bethany's story: Drifting Away
Esther's story prompt: "A story about whatever characters in whatever time period, inspired by this song by Florence + the Machine, Rabbit Heart (You Raise Me Up)"
Esther's story: Rabbithearted Girl
Note: In full disclosure, Bethany's is more true short story size, and mine is either a monstrous short story or a baby novella.
