Let’s Build the Place

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Places.”

Today, we’re going to build the place of your dream…

First of all, let’s start by choosing the main material: fresh water in a pond or lake, sand by the seashore, trees in a woods, grass on a prairie, cement in a city. You name it, we’ve got it 😉

Now that we’ve set the foundation, let’s add a building to the picture. As an artist/designer (another way of saying self-proclaimed architect), I’ll need to know what the purpose or major function of the building is. If it is for housing people, I would suggest a house, a mansion, an apartment, a castle, a ship or cruise on the sea, a tree house or cave if you like nature, or even a hotel for your occasional vacations. If it is for business, you can take a look at our catalog (a.k.a. the view of your city or street) and pick your ideal model.

Okay, so far we’ve got most of the blueprint done. Let’s add some life to it so it won’t be boring! Since it is the place of your dream, I’m assuming you will be in the picture. There are other characters you can choose to be implemented, such as your family, your friends, your colleagues or boss (this option isn’t very popular, I’ll admit). Magical characters are available as well (e.g. Professor Dumbledore, fairy godmother, evil witch, etc.), although not many people know about this option. If you like animals, we have a variety of choices for you, from typical ones such as dogs and cats, to extraordinary, even mythical creatures such as dragons and unicorns. Please consult an ecologist for more info on biological interactions to ensure the biodiversity and ecobalance are well maintained.

We’re all set for creating a story in this place of your dream. Don’t know where to start? Here, I’ll show you an example: the place in my dream… Once upon a time…
