In a few lines, describe a landscape from a bird’s eye view. Next, zoom in and write a short story, including 2 characters and a conflict. Write the story in a third person omnipotent point of view : ie. the narrator knows everything about the characters. Where is it, who are the characters, what is the conflict?
Try writing a short love story. Think Wuthering Heights rather than Mills & Boon, avoid cliches, be bold.
Give yourself not more than 15 minutes to write a short story about a walker on this road.
Where are they going? What for? Who are they and what do they want? Set the timer…and get going
