Writing Challenges: Inspiration and ideas to spark your creativity every day

A character's (or a person's) bedroom often reveals quite a bit about who that person is, on a deep level. Let's explore the bedroom of your character, to get a feel for what is important to them.
Step 1: Imagine you are standing in your character's bedroom. What do you see? Make a list. Include posters that might be on the walls, photos around the room, furniture. Is there a bulletin board and if so, what's on it? Open drawers in the desk or dresser and look at what's inside. Find a treasure box/diary and explore. Spend 5-7 minutes making a list of what is in this room.
Step 2: Choose one item from the list and tell its story. Set your timer for seven minutes and write!
