Just as an exercise, I spent a while last night trying to draw locations from my novel. The idea behind it was, if I can spend a while visualizing them as a drawing, it might be beneficial when it comes to describing them on paper.
Maybe. I dunno.
In the first picture, we have the ‘shop front’ of The Lawbridge Courier, the newspaper of the fictional town. It’s where the protagonist, Gary, works (the vandalism on the window happens during the story). The second picture is Gary’s home, although he still lives with his grandmother (hence the rail by the door).
If nothing else, it was fun to draw. As you can see, I’m no artist, but it made a nice change from typing into a word document night after night!
