Writing Inspiration – May

Wherever you are – switch your phone off, make sure you are fully paying attention to what is around you and go for a short walk. Take note of any people you walk past, together with houses or shops. Notice colours, sounds, smells and textures.

Find a café you haven’t been to before. Order a coffee or tea and get your notebook out. While it is fresh in your mind, make a note of the following:

– Describe a person

– Describe a house or shop front

– Make a note of the colours, sounds, smells and textures you remember

– Jot down any overheard conversation

Take a few minutes to create a flash fiction story (approx. 250 words) incorporating all the above elements. Remember that you can always create a longer version or carve out a poem from the raw material you have discovered.
