Think about where your characters sleep to generate a new piece of creative writing

Set the timer for five minutes. Imagine one of your characters and think about the bedroom they slept in last night. Describe the room in as much detail as possible. Who did they share it with? What colours, sounds, textures and smells did they experience? Was there a window? What could they see?

For the remaining time, use the information you have gathered to draft a poem or flash fiction story or create the first few paragraphs of a longer story.
