Find Your Story Within Contest – Week 7

February 24, 2012

The week 7 writing prompt is ready to inspire your writing! The week 6 winner is Henry S. Parker. Check back here next week to read his winning entry.

Settings can be easily visualized because when written well, they appeal to all our senses.

Setting is often overlooked, but has the potential to be the dominant element in a story—as in The Secret Garden, for example –where the garden’s slow flourishing mirrors the developing relationships and the main character’s return to health. Setting can predispose the reader to feel what the character feels and it can also change the entire nature of an interaction.

In no more than 250 words, describe a setting so influential it is as powerful as a character.

To enter, send an email to thestorywithinbook@gmail.com with your full name, email address and written entry. Week seven entries are due on Wednesday, February 29, 2012.
