1. You went to bed on Earth but woke up….somewhere else. Unfortunately you’re not on Earth any longer. How’d you get here? And why?

2. Write the same scene in two to three different locations. How does location or setting affect the story? What details become important?

3. You live in a waterfall. It’s always been this way but now the waterfall is threatened.

4. Road trip! Take yourself or a group of characters on a road trip that reveals who they are or shapes them in some way.
