A Week of Prompts: Friday

Setting the Scene
We start with “Where does the scene take place?” (and that’s the prompt for today). But we can add depth for the reader: time of day, sensory experiences, attitudes of the characters to this place and time, how it compares to other settings . . .

Here is a list of questions, not just one prompt. Pick a couple aspects to make sure your scene is grounded in “real” space. (On the sidebar is a link to “The #1 Reason You’ll Never Finish Writing Your Novel” that’s a good read for fellow procrastinators.)

What’s the Week of Prompts about?

Ann Marie Gamble has been putting pen to paper since her mom made her scrub the crayon off the stairwell walls (one chapter per step). Although there is plenty of inspiration to be had in the carpool lane, she likes writing her way across the galaxy as well as across town, and she especially enjoys research missions (aka family vacations) when she and the boys can get away. Her favorite place to write is a room with a view and a pot of tea.
