Writing Prompt: Random Acts

When was the last time you witnessed a random act of kindness or you ran across a truly extraordinary person? They’re around us all the time, everywhere, we just fail to stop and notice. How often to we pause and really see what and who is around us? Here’s your writing mission, should you choose to accept: spend the day in careful observation. Watch people on the bus, walking in the pavement, in the shops, behind the counters, at the office, at the school yard. Writers are first and foremost observers of human nature.

Spend the day really seeing what’s around you. Write it down. Draw from the people you know as well as strangers. Are you inspired? When I think of some of the things both friends and strangers accomplish, I know I am.
