13 October 2023
Explore someone in their ideal environment in this week's creative writing exercise

Who is the character, and what is their happy place? What does it look like, and what is in it?

Is there person there alone, or in company?

Why is that particular set-up their happy place?

What does it represent to them (ie, a retreat from the world; a place where they feel most themselves; somewhere they feel safe and at ease, etc)?

It is somewhere easy for them to access? Or somehow out of reach?
