Imagine being Harry Potter and living in a cupboard under the stairs – detail your experiences and feelings about it.
Think about the physical and emotional aspects of living in such a confined and lonely space. How did it make you feel to be isolated from the rest of the family? How did it shape your perceptions of family life, the world, and yourself? This prompt compels writers to explore the psychological impact of solitude and inferiority, and to reflect on what resilience would look like under such circumstances.
