Writing Prompt – Thursday 30th April

This photo is the railway line towards Evesham (with Bredon Hill in the background). I’m standing on a bridge looking down on the track.

During this time of lockdown there are fewer trains. Also, if you go on-line to book tickets you are likely to be asked if your journey is necessary.

It made me think of escapes by train going back in history – for instance those who escaped from prisoner of war camps with false papers, Jewish people trying to reach safety and French Resistance spies travelling from one place to another.

I’ve also thought of journeys by rail – those I have done frequently and those I have dreamed of doing – like going to Venice on the Orient Express.

For this week’s prompt, try writing ‘TRAIN’ or ‘RAILWAY’ in the middle of a large sheet of paper. Then create a mind map or spider diagram and see how many ideas you can generate.

Have fun with it and see where the idea takes you!
