Coffee break exercise: Confinement
Imagine you've been confined in a room for seven years, and write about it in this week's creative writing exercise
Set your timer. Spend five minutes considering what it might be like to spend seven years in a confined space. Note down the effect it might have on you, and what you think you might do to pass the time.
For the next ten minutes, create a fictional first-person narrator and write a monologue of them speaking to themselves about their day-to-day existence.
