ast weekend, we had Shazia, one of our most prolific writers and the bubbliest members hosting a session. It’s always and always a fun time when Shazia is at Write Club and if you have been fortunate to have been to one of the sessions with her, you wouldn’t disagree with me. She usually comes up with the most researched of topics and presents them to us for exercise in the simplest of ways.
Even this weekend, she came up with a seemingly easy yet a thought-ptovoking topic. The sense of place and a journey to another.
Write up a piece that would describe the idea of a journey between any two places, giving the places their due character, personality and depictive importance. The story, the plot, the characters are not as important as the sense of place and its description are, in this particular prompting exercise.
Place, in its literary sense, can be defined in several ways. For one thing, we may define place as the physical aspect of the environment at hand. In the literary world, place is usually combined with time and events to establish what is know as the social setting or the social context of a literary work.
Cheers to Shazia for having let our imagination and creativity soar from low planes to high lands.
