Today is the feast day of St Nicholas, and a day where the children of families who celebrate St Nicholas' Day often receive sweets, fruits and small gifts in their stockings, socks, shoes or bags.
We don't have presents for you today, but we do have a double dose of the present tense, should you wish to take up the challenge....
Write the same story twice (or more), written from two (or more) different characters' points of view.
You can write two separate, stand-alone stories, or write one story told from multiple points of view.
For an extra challenge, write in the present tense and interleave the two different threads so that the reader experiences the events unfolding in the story from two points of view at once.
