Location, location, location!
Some time ago I wrote a fictional tale (here) about mountain driving. It had to be in the rocky mountains, because you can’t fall off an appalachian mountain! It had to be about a mile above the land below in order for the time elements to work. There had to be a grove of conifers or the ending would have been far different.
The prompt for FWE this week is “place”. Write a story, article, essay, or poem where the place is key to the meaning. Describe the location in sufficient detail that it becomes a highlight of the entry. Use time, dialogue, tension, character development, whatever tools you wish but be certain that the location is an important aspect of your piece. It need not be that your location is the only place where your story could have taken place although that would be an option to consider. A mythical location is OK, but again it should be described in sufficient detail to make the place significant.
Don’t forget to include the prompt before or after your entry: “Write a poem, story or essay in which the specific location is essential to the meaning.”
Be sure to include FWE-Place in your title and tag with FWE. Submit to Gather Writing Essential.
