Host: Serena at I see You See Date: 1st October Time: All day
Serena's Rules: Pick one of these places: Woodsville, Kingshire, Douglas Manor, Letham Grange and describe what you think that place would be like. You can Draw a picture, write a sentence, a paragraph or however you feel best describes a new amazing world


Woodsville: Deep among the trees in Woodsville is a little cabin, made of wood (naturally), where a man with a wiry, red beard is said to have lived. Like a hermit he braved the elements, the seasons and the solitude, communing with nature. Content to live alongside the bears and the other wildlife, he wanted for nothing, while his wife made the daily trip through the woods to bring him his supper. Then she returned home to their ten children and the dog.

  9. I wish I'd participated in this blogfest (I had only time for the genre Mash-up Blogfest)
    A strong sense of place is crucial in writing and scene-setting.
