So I totally stole this idea from my agent, Rachelle Gardner, but I thought it would be a fun exercise for Christmas Eve. Write a haiku, (a 17-syllable poem with 5 syllables in the first line, seven in the second, and five in the third) about Christmas or winter or whatever. You can use mine as an example if you’ve never done it before. Have fun!
tidings of great joy
stuffed in my mailbox—what if
they make me jealous?
