Looking out of the window can provide you with inspiration for a new piece of writing

Set the timer for five minutes. Create a spider diagram or mind map and see how many ideas about windows you can find.

For the remaining ten minutes, create a poem or flash fiction story that involves a character looking out of – or climbing out of – a window.
