Work the following items into a piece of fiction. Start free-writing the piece of fiction itself, or free-write ideas for the fiction until you have something you think you could work with:
- A filigree wedding band
- A portrait photograph, in black-and-white, of a stern-looking woman
- A red scarf
If you want a further constraint to make things more interesting, pick one of the following genres to hold yourself to:
- ‘Memoir’ (in quotes because it’s fiction written in the style of a memoir, not an actual memoir)
Set a timer for 15-30 minutes and dive right in!
