I have a fun writing assignment for anyone who wants to give it a try. You'll need a portable audio recorder to do it. Many cell phones have microphone recorders too. Here's the assignment:

Stand outside of your front door and turn the recorder on. Then walk in and throughout your house while describing everything that comes to mind about your surroundings. Just let it be a free-for-all. Even if it may sound stupid, say it. Don't think about it, just say it. Even how you feel walking around in certain places, or describe things you see. Let it flow.

Then transcribe what you wrote into a short story.

I wanna hear! Doing mine now.
