winter-sunsetThis wintry vista is all you can see, and you are alone. The cold is about to get colder. Write a 500-word, fast-moving short story about your journey to safety – or peril. How did you get here? Were you always alone? How will you save yourself from the unforgiving elements? Include sensory details, including your sixth sense – heightened now with the animals and other hunters possibly surrounding you.
