    Finally finished mine, though I think it'd better be in the for fun category this time. I did edit it down, but kept going over the wordcount.

    December’s Theme: Once Upon a December

    Inspired by the song of the same name from the movie Anastasia, this theme requires you to start your story for the month with “Once upon a December…”.
    Special Rules: No special rules this month, so the normal limits of 500-1000 words and 1-12 screenshots apply.


    ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
    Submissions: (in order to be voting eligible, stories in this category must follow all word and screenshot limits as listed under "Special Rules" above and be submitted by 12 pm on December 31st, Central Time)
    ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________
    "For Fun" Entries: (Any stories listed here are inspired by the monthly theme, but don't follow all the rules of the challenge and aren't in the monthly poll. Sometimes writers can't put limits on their creativity, and that's all good. Enjoy!)

    Thank you :) I enjoyed writing for November's challenge! Shame that there weren't many other stories to read. Maybe people are busier during the holiday season? But thanks for keeping these challenges going, it's a great idea and provides us with monthly writing prompts :)

    Sorry to hear this is ending. It was fun, both to read and participate in when I could. But I understand why you're ending the challenges. Maybe someday they'll start up again, or someone will take over.

    edited January 31
    I started writing a thing back when the theme was "April Showers bring May Flowers" but I never finished it, and I only just finished it last night. I thought I would share it here even though you guys have stopped Monthly SimLits, because the story was originally intended for this.

    I hope you enjoy :)
