Describing Setting: The View Outside

Day 5 of NaNoWriMo: how’s your story going?

Today’s prompt is: describe the view out your window.

What is the season?  Vegetation, grass, trees, sand, sea?  Are there animals?  Is the wind blowing or is it quiet?  Is it sunny or dark?  What sounds do you hear?  Early morning garbage truck or bird song or the pounding of surf?  How will it look different 6 months from now?

What do you smell?  Fresh-mown hay, the garbage dump next door, the neighbors’ barbecue, salt air?

Are there memories, good or bad, associated with this view and this place?

What do you like most about your view?  What do you like least?  If you could change just one thing, what would it be?

If you could have any view you want, what would you be looking at?  A real place, an imaginary place?  Describe the sights, sounds, smells, weather, landscape, animals, people.  Who would be there with you?
