Step up to a new writing project in this week's creative writing exercise

Imagine a staircase that could form a setting for a story. Set the timer for five minutes and describe it in as much detail as you can. Who lives at the top?

For the next five minutes, jot down some story ideas. What happens next?

For the remaining time, think about your own ‘stairway to success.’ Jot down brief details about a writing project you haven’t been brave enough to try yet. Decide what you will do as the first step towards it.
