Write Around the House - A Writing Map

These writing prompts, inspired by Xavier de Maistre's 1790s book Voyage Around My Room, will set you off on a writing adventure in and around the rooms you live in. This writing map is an invitation to record, chart, and use this daily journey around your house as inspiration for stories and philosophical thoughts. The exercises on the Write Around the House writing map encourage you to step into the books on your shelves, to imagine what others see when they look through your windows (or a character's windows), and to record and measure the journeys to and from your writing desk.

The Writing Map is illustrated by Stephen Longwill, with writing prompts by Shaun Levin.
