Coffee-break exercise: Takeaway


14 July 2023
Write about a favourite fast food in this week’s exercise

What will you choose, and what do you like most about it? Flavour, smell, association, circumstance? Why is it a favourite?

Does a particular meal spring to mind? In a particular place and time? Or is it a regular habit?

Whether you’re writing about your own experience or assigning a favourite takeaway to a character, write a passage that conjures the experience of ordering the food, and eating the first few mouthfuls. Write in a way that makes your reader feel hungry!
