Something Fishy

When writing a fantasy narrative with a real world trigger, try to write three sections for the opening of the story. The real word setting and finding the trigger, the journey to the fantasy land, (no matter how brief) and then arriving in the fantasy world.

In this case the trigger is the washing machine, the journey is very short - basically putting head in machine and then swimming the short distance into the underwater world.

Try writing other stories using everyday objects as triggers.

Perhaps you can find a trigger at home.

The journey to the fantasy land may be very quick or may take a while; it may be pleasant or unpleasant! Use the story mountain to help you!
