[Writing Prompt] Space

The Prompt

Pick a spectacular or vivid interior space. Set your story in it, paying attention to the space and how it might shape your narrative.


  • Perhaps your space is large and cavernous and something whispered at one end can be easily overheard at the other.
  • Perhaps your hero is visiting his grandmother who has a lifetime of tchotchkes cluttering every surface. How does that affect him and can he say what he came here to say?
  • Does your heroine need comfort, but find herself in a sterile home decorated by her acclaimed but distant architect husband?

Use a few details of an interior setting in your story today to suggest what’s going on with your characters.


And when you have written your story, log in and post your success in The Victory Dance group or simply comment on this post and let the congrats come flying in.
