Coffee-break writing: Find


22 September 2023
Write about an unexpected discovery in this week’s creative writing exercise

What is the find? Is it an object? If so, what is it? What are the circumstances of it being discovered? What part does the element of chance have to play?

Is the find something other than an object or article? if so, how would you describe it?
What gives the find its significance?

What is the effect of the find on the person who finds it? Is anyone else involved in any way?
What might the consequences of the find be?
