Coffee-break exercise: Imaginary vehicle


09 June 2023
Invent a vehicle with extraordinary powers in today’s creative writing exercise

Imagine anything is possible. What would you like your vehicle to do? Fly? Travel under water, or in more than one element? Move through solid objects? Travel through time? Can it communicate with its driver, and how?

Once you’ve decided on the vehicle’s purpose, decide the features it needs and what it will look like.

Who is going to use it, and where is it going to take them?

What fuel does it use? How fast does it travel, and at what units of speed? Has it got wheels, and what kind? What are its most fantastical qualities?

Write a passage about travelling in the vehicle you have invented.
