“Let the scene write itself” Challenge
A woman sitting peacefully on a bench in the desert…
So far, we’ve found inspiration from our own experiences, images, words, and more. Today, let’s quietly observe the world around us and write about what we see.
Find a spot where you can sit and observe for at least 20 minutes: a bench at a park, shopping mall, or museum; from inside your car in a parking lot; or even a place close to home, like your front porch. Ideally, it’s a location where you can watch action and interaction unfold (whether it involves people, wildlife, the weather, etc.).
You can write your post “on location,” on your laptop or your phone, so the details are fresh in your mind. Or, you can take notes, then draft the scene later.
