Need some writing inspiration?  Find or think of a room that evokes some emotion in you

I often cast my mind back to rooms in houses that I have lived in and try to re-capture what it looked like and the activities that took place.  In one of my homes, my conservatory was both a place of peace for me to read and write and a party room where lots of friends who head back to after a night out.  By contrast I can see a bedroom in my nan’s house, which despite it being next to the bathroom, had potties under the bed which we had to use if we needed a wee in the night.  It seemed to me that it was only my mum, brother and I that ever slept there. Where I wonder my dad was?

Pick a room, any room, perhaps that one in your grandparents house.  Close your eyes and try to visualise it, now grab a piece of paper and draw out what you can remember, use pictures and words.  Once the diagram is in front of you, write down everything you remember about the times you stayed in the room.

  • Using the diagram you just made cast your mind back
  • What can you see, feel, hear and smell?
  • Write a story about that room
