NOTE FROM ANNA: From time to time I will send out writing exercises for those followers who write or have a calling to write. These are just for you–no need to share unless you feel called to do so.

Where are you? Describe in detail as if setting the scene for your novel or short story.

Why are you there?

Are others there as well? If so, describe them. If not, describe your feelings at being in this place and alone.


NOTE FROM ANNA: From time to time I plan to post comments on books I have read–or am reading–on this blog. I hope this will inspire you to share your comments on that book–or one you have read as well.

If you have not yet read Anthony Doerr’s ALL THE LIGHT WE CANNOT SEE, and you are a fan of historical–especially WWII–fiction, I urge you to download, purchase, borrow this Pulitzer Prize winning novel now.

All the Light We Cannot See

Currently reading: THE SEA by Irish author, John Banville. Stay tuned!
