What would it be like to pick a random stranger and compile a list of facts and figures, perhaps a whole portrait of their life just through observation and the internet? Spooky, huh? There’s a word for that – stalking…
I’m not suggesting you actually do this But try writing a short piece about someone who is either doing the stalking or from thee point of view of someone experiencing it.
If the former, start by creating a situation where they either meet or observe their victim. Then, flesh out how they go about fining things about them. What happens next? Do they eventually approach them or simply keep their distance? What are the consequences?
If you write from the point of view of the victim, how do they find out and what is their reaction?
Have some fun with this one.
