The A-Z Of Writing Ideas – E Is For…

Welcome to the fifth instalment in my latest writing series. Each week, I give you an idea – whether it’s a magazine to write for, a theme for a short story, the opening line of a poem…Here are the first , second , third and fourth in the series.

This week, it’s the fifth part of the series and the letter E‘s turn. And E is for Emergency.

What does the word emergency conjure up for you? An accident? The flashing lights of the emergency services? Getting an anguished phone call from a loved one? Jot down a few ideas. Which one are you drawn to the most? Make some more notes and before you know it, you’ve got a story to write. 

If you’re still stuck for inspiration, here are a few opening lines for you:

  • It was her own fault – she’d yearned for excitement; how she wished she hadn’t.
  • Luke knew he was going to drown; he had seconds left at the most.
  • When Gina heard the siren, she knew exactly what had happened.
  • The woman’s face was screwed up like a wrinkled prune, the eyes puffy from constant tears and her nose spewing trails of snot, though you couldn’t help but feel for her; it wasn’t her fault her son had turned out like he had – was it?
