Simple prompt today.
Turn your head to the left. What’s the first thing you see? No cheating—be honest.
Now set your timer and write about it for 5 minutes. Don’t tell me there’s nothing to say—get real close and look for the detail. Here are some questions to consider:
- Why is that object there, on your left, in your room?
- When did you acquire it?
- What made you choose it?
- Did someone else choose it?
- What feelings does it provoke?
- What colour is it? Texture?
Set a timer for 5 minutes and go. You’ll be surprised how much you have to say about the most mundane objects...
