Coffee break exercise: Clouds
Watch the sky to find new inspiration for your work in our latest creative writing exercise
Take a few moments to look at the sky outside your window. What is it like? Set the timer for three minutes and write a brief description. Could you use this as metaphor for how one of your characters feels? For instance, storm clouds could indicate an approaching argument or anxiety about a loved one on a journey by sea. If you’re looking at a vibrant sunset maybe this could indicate the passion of lovers who are reunited at the end of a difficult separation.
Use the remaining time to map out more of the story.
