What is the picture of serenity to you? A secluded lake? A hotspring visit with close friends? Your toes in the sand near the shore? A summer barbecue with family? The quiet of your room? Describing a serene place is this week’s challenge.

Challenge: A Serene Setting

Word count: 4,000 words or less
Genre (choose one): flash fiction, poem, short story, essay, song, a scene from a film script or play, etc.
Due date: next Friday*
Prompt: Write about a serene place your narrator loves. Describe things with sensory details, without relying solely on visual images. Let us feel, taste, smell, hear this serene place. Is this a secluded or populated space? Is it outdoors or indoors? Help the reader feel the serenity the narrator is experiencing.
