Writing Prod - Mouth of Babes 2

            Merry Christmas to one and all.  

            For today’s writing prompt I am going to throw a little holiday cheer into the mix. The actual prod is something I call . . . Mouth of Babes. If you have young children, ask them for a story idea and then run with it. If you don’t have any young children see if you can borrow some.
            My youngest son told me to write a story about a dragon. Then once I added a Christmas setting to that idea I had the following story.


               Dragon Bells 

            Pencho lives in the land of dragons. It is a dangerous place and the inhabitants battle with one another constantly. But Pencho finds his normal routine disrupted when he stumbles across a strange human from a far off place that talks about a wondrous thing called Christmas. Little does Pencho know that his quest will end with him pulling Santa’s slay on Christmas Eve.





  1. Reading this reminds me of the How to Train Your Dragon marathon that was on FX

    1. I'll take that as a good thing.

      Every year I write a Christmas story for my family. This will be next year's story. I think it will turn out pretty good.
