Thursday Tip: People Watching

Today is another mini-challenge. The idea is simple, easy and potentially fun to execute. You pick your favorite public place, and instead of going with the flow, losing yourself in the crowd or hoovering over the latest bestsellers, arm yourself with a pencil and a notebook. Sit back, and observe the people around you. Pick one person. Write his or her story in ten lines. You can do it based purely on your imagination, or take clues from your observations (facial expression, clothes, etc…) 🙂

    I do this in my head all the time! In fact, in public, I’m always people watching. People are just so fascinating!
