Your Monday Prompt #18

Write a story in which fictional characters of your own invention interact with a real location you know extremely well. What if two fresh characters lived and breathed in your own home? What if there was a robbery at your favorite restaurant? What if a new kid arrived at your elementary school? Avoid placing you in the story, and really utilize the details you know of the location instead. Setting should play a key role in your story, and this will rely on the specific details you know about the location.

Give this exercise at least fifteen minutes of your time, and consider sharing it with someone in your life who also knows the real location used in the story.

Write it up and see what happens.
