We're going back to writing class this week with a prompt cribbed straight from Ursula K. Le Guin's book on writing.

You have two options: you may either choose to write about a character or an event.

Here's the trick: you are going to write about them by describing a place. If you write about a character, it should be somewhere they live or frequent; if you write about an event, it should be the site of the event. Also, your subject does not appear in your story. If you write about a character, they are absent; if you write about an event, it is either before or after it happens.

Since these are descriptive pieces, you won't be judged on narrative structure. You will be judged for your words being boring or bad, so don't do that. All genres are permitted. You may optionally submit two pieces this week, one for a character, and one for an event. Flash rules available upon toxx.
