This exercise asks you to take inspiration from the world of art. Find a piece you like: visit a website, actually go to a museum, look around your house. Then do one of two things: write the story of that piece of art beginning with a description of it, or imagine the character from your novel engaged with that piece of art in some way.

Is it hanging in their home?  

Did they see it on a date?  

Did they receive it as a postcard?

How do they describe it?  

What do they see?  

What do they see that reflects their own inner conflict at this moment in the story? 

Where does the story go when the image stops? 

Write until you have finished the scene.
