Take 15 minutes to write a story.
Find somewhere to sit with your notebook.
Look around for two items – objects not people.
Construct a story about why they met, what their relationship is, and how they go on an adventure
Think about whether they are friends, enemies or an unusual partnership
Think about what challenges they might face.
Think about how whether they have a happy or sad ending.
Don’t worry about trying to be too clever, this exercise is just about building a story about things which you are making observations around, and imagination.
Being forced to write unusual stories about uncommon situations helps you exercise part of the mind which doesn’t often have to work too hard.
