Today’s story starter is a visual one. Decide who this woman is and why she’s on the beach with a bottle of wine. Is she celebrating? If so, what is she celebrating? Is she drinking to forget? Is she happy or sad? Why?
Why is she dressed up? Where is she? And…what happens next? Does she meet someone on the beach? Does she pass out only to be awakened by a stranger? Does she go swimming in that lovely dress and wake up on a deserted island? It’s a simple picture with a thousand possible story ideas. Have fun and happy writing.
