Let scent evoke a new piece of creative writing in this week's exercise

Set the timer for five minutes. Think of two characters and create brief biographies for them.

For the next five minutes think of a perfume that Character A likes and Character B dislikes. Jot down some reasons for why they each feel this way.

For the remaining time, create the first draft of a story, poem or monologue detailing what happened when Character A gave a bottle of the perfume to Character B.
