Remembe{red}: A Room of Your Own

The week's memoir assignment asks you to think of the setting of your life.

Settings are so significant in stories--especially our own, true stories.  How we create setting can make or break the feeling we are trying convey in our story.

Think of a room from your past.  It can be any type of room at all.

Take a mental picture of that room.

What happened there?  What is it like?  What is the atmosphere there?  What are the smells, the sounds, the sights?  How does it feel?

Now reveal that snapshot to your reader.

Take us to that room.

And try to do it in 750 words or less.

Link up will be Tuesday!

Happy Remembering!
