The Weekly Challenge

The Weekly Challenge, 12th July 2021 – Story Generator

This week Jack from Bristol challenges us to dive into our imagination! 

“I have always loved writing and find it most exciting when you have to think on your feet and find new creative ways to present ideas.”

Let’s get storytelling…

 

Do 

Pick 2 people, 2 animals, 2 objects, 1 hope and 1 fear. Spend a few minutes thinking about the ways in which these things are connected, and write a short story that brings them all together.

It could be people you know or people you don’t know, objects you have around you, or objects that relate to the people or animals you have chosen, anything goes! 

Your story could be one sentence long, or one page long. If you prefer, you could draw or create a collage that depicts a scene from your story incorporating as many elements as you like. 

 

If you have more time…. 

Choose different people, animals, objects, hopes, fears and see where the next story takes you.

 

Think 

Did the chosen elements of your story connect in any new or surprising ways?
