I thought of this challenge as I was writing about the muggy heat of a rainforest afternoon, despite never having been to a rainforest. Most of my inspiration came from living in humid places and dialing that up to 11 (and reading about what it feels like to traverse a rainforest). I want my reader to feel like they are experiencing this stifling damp warmth along with my characters.
Then I thought, that would be a really interesting exercise! But I don’t really do exercises on this blog so I figured, let’s do a flash fiction challenge!
Using the picture below as inspiration OR your own experiences/setting, write a paragraph about a setting that makes your readers feel like they are really in that place. Use the weather, the different senses, the atmosphere of the place, etc.
Please post your responses in the comments below or feel free to share this flash fiction challenge on your blog! The more the merrier!
