What is your response to this picture? Write down your first instinct for the type of story and a few words that may describe the plot you’re imagining.
How does the house in the picture make you feel? How about the ground around it? Who or what would be inside? Write those things down too.
Now, write down the opposite of those feelings and the opposite kind of character.
That character and those feelings are going to be in your original story idea.
Using these ideas, write the beginning few paragraphs of a story. Try to write at least 500 words. Why not use this story as a ‘break’ when you’re feeling a bit of the old writer’s block?
