Writing Prompt: Hated

There are some people who are in jobs that inspire venom. For instance, traffic wardens, tax collectors, politicians, lawyers, sports referees.

Whatever we might think of these people and no matter how much you’d like to beat a traffic warden with a traffic cone or set a lawyer loose in the exercise yard of a maximum security prison for the criminally insane with nothing but their briefcase as a shield, they are people too. They had childhoods, went to school, have families and hobbies and are more than the sum of what their uniform or job implies. So, put yourself in the shoes of one of these people and try to imagine what it’s like. Maybe write a story about a day in the life of a football ref or a door to door salesman…see what you come up with. Writers, like actors, are students of humanity, they observe, record and try to understand. Have a go, have fun…
