Break through writing blocks

Create a Setting

The aim of this exercise is to help you describe a setting. When you click the buttons, they will generate an outline for the setting.

The words that are generated are not great literary prose (I'll leave that to you) but they give you an idea of what details to include.

Keep clicking until you find a scenario that you like.

Once you have the outline for your setting, imagine yourself there. Close your eyes if it helps (after you've read the following...)

- What do you see? For example, what buildings or natural formations? Are there any people? Animals, plants?

- What do you hear? Smell? What textures can you feel? Can you taste anything? Use any or all of your senses.

- Zoom in, make a note of details.

At this point, write as much as you like, but later, edit ruthlessly. Too much description can be boring!

This is a new exercise, so your feedback would be appreciated. What works, doesn't work, what else could be included? You can send me a message here.
