Try to recall a time when you sat by a window. Normally your neighborhood is fairly quiet. No small children live there and very few cars rush in and out during the day. One family owns a large dog, another had a small, yapping mix breed of some kind.
On this particular day you’re supposed to be completing a work assignment. Your computer desk just happens to be located by a large window that looks out on the street.
Something both interesting and unusual is taking place.
Your task is to write the story. Begin by identifying the characters by age, height, color and length of hair and any other details that might make for a story. Next think about what might be happening. Are there kids playing basketball? A delivery driver trying to turn around? A dog gets loose and is terrifying adults trying to exit their car?
How do your characters react? Is there screaming or fighting? Is one of the passengers a dog whisperer?
Write from the perspective of the watcher. To make things interesting, there might be an open window so that words can be heard.
Have fun with this one.
