A fun and easy way to inspire your next story is simply to pick a line from the book you’re reading.
We know writers are readers and readers are writers – so I know you’re in the middle of reading a book right now.
So, when you’re ready to be prompted into a new story, open that book randomly and pick a sentence (your eyes and pick one without looking).
Then start to write – quickly. Don’t copy the story line or characters from the book you’re reading; get something new from the sentence you picked.
Don’t censor yourself – just get words down and see what happens.
This can lead to the most unexpected outcomes and a very creative story.
