Writing Prompt 3

Need a story starter? Here is an easy way to get one – go out.  At the mall, or even in the grocery stores, sometimes at the gym but most probably everywhere you go; you are most likely to overhear somebody else’s conversation even without making a deliberate attempt at it.  Write down whatever you hear today even if it doesn’t make sense.  When you get back home, think about it as something your main character would say and create a story about why he/she said it.

  1. Definitely alot of value in this suggestion. A writer needs to be a satellite dish – always picking up signals, signs, ideas from everyday happenings and interaction with others.
