Building a story from a single sentence is a great exercise to open the mind, challenge stereotypes and create believable characters on the page!
Tonight our writing group did an exercise where we started with a basic sentence, then talked as a group about what we could do to bring it to life.
We had a bit of fun coming up with our basic sentence. There were six of us tonight, so we went around the table adding one word per person until we had our example: ‘John drank copiously after his sacking’.
Then we asked the question: how would we bring that story to life?
