Hot Summer Day Writing Prompt

The goal of this prompt is to describe an action or situation for your MC on a hot summer day. Choose a specific setting (beach, school, park, etc) and focus on how the details of the summer day might impact your MC's thoughts or actions/reactions. Is it a lazy summer day? One filled with tension? How do the sensory elements influence the dynamics of your story? Set your timer for 15-30 minutes and write. When you are done, read what you've written and see if you were able to firmly anchor your character in time and place.
