Story Prompt: Watch him

Today’s story prompt reminds me of a very British, stylish spy or assassin, who’d later complain about the inferior quality tea he had to endure because the victim’s taste buds were clearly not as refined as his own. How about you? Story Prompt Watch him

Setting Inspiration: African commune

Inspiration for today is a communal yard in Africa, and the photo was taken by yours truly. It’s located in Accra, Ghana.

What’s going on? Who lives here? What are the women talking about? What games do the kids play? What sort of meals are prepared, how do they go about preparing those meals?

Life Hacks, Study Tips and Story Prompts

Alrighty then!
New year, new routine for Study. Read. Write.

I’ll include Study Tips, Life Hacks and Story Prompts from now on on a more or less regular basis.

For a lot of students, school, college, university/grad school is starting back up next week and as a student myself I do find I need a few more tips on staying focused and organised.

And a few life hacks that will help throughout college (and dorm life) and beyond can’t hurt.

Some of the tips and hacks will be written by myself, others I will share with you from sites such as Pinterest (or wherever else I found them), with back-links to the originals (much like reblogs).

My random ramblings, reviews, updates and coffee breaks will continue. Not to worry. I just thought that a few tricks on how to survive college, prompts to inspire creative writing and a few good-to-know titbits of information would make a blog called “Study. Read. Write.” a bit more relevant.

 

 

 

Setting Inspiration: Train Station

Setting inspiration.

Is your character on board that train? Are they the one with the bike? Are they next to the photographer and realise they are on the wrong platform? Is the train arriving or just leaving? Is your character running to catch the train? Where are they going? Are they meeting someone?

Setting Inspiration: Hip Café

Maybe this picture inspires a scene in your stories. It did inspire me!

This is a café, art gallery, frozen yoghurt parlour and shop in Düsseldorf, Germany. The upstairs bit has a bar with a long table along one window wall and one long one in the middle of the floor, with several small ones in the nooks and against the other windows. It’s comfy and the coffee is really good. Wild mix of colours and chairs, art books on the tables, newspapers available – my new favourite hangout.

It’s called Toykio.
