Story Writing 101

Imagine being in a strange new place. What does it feel like? Is it hot or cold, wet, dry, windy or dark? What do you see? Are you scared or excited? Write a few sentences describing your experience. In the final line, introduce an unexpected object or sound. But, make sure you don’t include all the details- it should sound mysterious.
