For Tuesday, August 12
Walking around Beach Haven, New Jersey last Wednesday, I came upon this fabulous house. Over the next week, walk around your own neighborhood (or a new one) and find a house, townhouse, or apartment building that captivates you. Stand or park in front of it for 5 to 10 minutes, writing down notes on what you see, hear, and feel.
Later, expand your writing by responding to one of these questions (or one of your own.) Let your imagination run wild on this one.
- Imagine a quarrel between two people who live there.
- Imagine a perfect day at home for one of its residents.
- Imagine how the house looked the day that the current owners moved in. What were they thinking, worrying about, anticipating?
