I am quickly becoming aware that I am not a writer who can just sit down and write. I need to know where I want my story to go or I end up with a lot of similar scenes as my story goes around in circles as I have no idea how to move it forward.
So, today’s exercise is the following…
Make a plan for a story, in note form that’s related to one of the following topics..
Inheriting an old house.
A blind date
Broken down car in a deserted area
A holiday that goes wrong
A birthday party.
Aim for two pages of notes for a 500 word short story. Think about characters, theme, setting, point of view, what conflict and mystery is present and how ideally you’d like it to end.
Then, think of a title for your story.
Now write your story.
