There are hundreds of things we see every day that can spark a story. Watching people on the street, in cafes, in the park, can set us wondering what their life is like and what has brought them to where they are now.
Below are ten photographs of people in different situations. Pick the one that immediately grabs your attention and sets your imaginative juices flowing, and see if you can write a story about it.
Set aside twenty minutes and just write. Don’t worry about grammar or editing, just write and get your story down on paper. As your theme, consider why these people are there and what are they about to do?
