Get creative! Be bold! Wow us, amuse us. Make us cry. The New Year is dawning, my friends. Let’s greet it with our words.

Please either backlink or share your link in the comments below. We’re greedy for your words. And share this prompt if you wouldn’t mind. Let’s go into 2016 encouraging more people to channel their inner muses.

We’ll meet you down in the comments.

In case you didn’t know the song that was running through my mind while I wrote these words:
