Somedays, it’s hard to know what to write about. The inspirational genius inside shuts off and we don’t know what to do. But we have to write.
Some thoughts could spark a story though, jumpstart our creativity.
1) Childhood memories
Some childhood memories are more interesting than most. Perhaps you met a strange animal as a child or had a strange encounter. Or maybe you gotta write about how terrible something was. There’s a lot of childhood moments that are good to write about.
2) Person you see often, but don’t know
Some people you see but never meet can be the most interesting people. You never know them, so you can run wild with the thought, thinking of it in different perspectives.
3) Controversial topics
Some of the best topics to write about are what people don’t want to write about. Like perhaps something the government did made you upset. The whole world may not know what to do. But the more someone talks about it, the more we can find a solution.
4) Object that interests you
Some objects can be strange and unusual. It could be from a book to a rug to a pair of sunglasses. But they all have stories to tell.
5) Story from a song
Some songs are vague enough for everyone to relate. But sometimes we can twist them into our own stories.
