An author friend of mine introduced me to this book, The Pocket Muse, Endless Inspiration for Writers by Monica Wood. The book gives inspirational tips for writers. Here are a few examples:
A radio that receives a single station
Write about the one who got away, but it's not a person
A man is seeking a woman who is not safe, why isn't she?
Create a character who has to be the center of attention
A museum guard who touches the paintings
Write about the prodigal son in the point of view of the unappreciated older sister
A faucet that delivers something other than water
Change no to yes and see what happens
A man walks into a bar but it's not a bar
Write about the one who refuses to fit in
A household item becomes the source of a family war
I could go on with these fun pieces of creativity but I'd like to see what you come up with...give it a try!!!
