A Box of Chocolates

Valentine’s Day arrives this week and many of your waistlines will be encountering a delectable box of chocolates.  For this week’s challenge, you will be reimagining the box of chocolates as a writing form.

To help you along, here’s a picture:

A collection of unique and separate chocolates forms a greater whole.  One rarely finds a single small piece of chocolate that ascends to the heights that the variety provides.

With that in mind, you will be writing a dozen mini-pieces in a single post.  Each mini-piece should be 25-35 words and be self-contained.  In other words, they should not form a dialogue, advance a plot, or otherwise interact with one another.  However, they should be unique.  You might vary the style in each one, offer viewpoints from 12 different perspectives, or devise 12 different formatting techniques.  Whatever strategy you choose, the twelve pieces should look like a coherent whole when they’re juxtaposed in your post.

Compose and publish your response to this prompt on your own blog.  Be sure to include a link to this post so that a pingback will appear here, thereby allowing other participants to discover your work.  Please be patient if your pingback does not appear immediately; I am not at my computer 24/7 and I have to approve all pingbacks.  For this reason, using the bcandelabra tag may be advisable.
