Narrative distance


Checkpoint piece

Choose a new inspiration image below (or find/imagine something else), and write a short scene that transitions between levels of narrative distance.

  • Choose a direction: you can close in on a character or pull away from them.
  • Choose a smoothness: you can transition smoothly between levels, or jump abruptly.
  • Move between at least two levels, or more if you want.
  • Don't jump randomly—think about your intent.
