Imagine your place on the bookshelf of the future

Create some time and find a quiet place to sit and think. Imagine there’s a screen in your mind and you can put any image there. When you find an image, ask yourself: where, who, why, how, when? What came before? What comes next?

Then wipe the screen and try out other images until you have one that inspires you. This month’s task is to write your opening scene from this image, trying to evoke the feeling and atmosphere of the story you watched in your head.
