Ok, it is time to post the first exercise. I figure we'll start with a warm-up. Well actually, I have never done this before, so I don't know if I'm warming us up with jumping jacks or a 10k race. So bear with me. :-)
Pick a setting. Describe the setting. Try to invoke all the senses in your description of the location. For now, avoid describing specific characters in this setting.
I'm going to post exercises publicly, but please post replies privately and start a new thread for each person's reply so we can add comments underneath the appropriate piece of writing.
Questions can be posted here.
