I met a very interesting playwright at a blues party two weeks ago.  She said her most produced play takes place inside a suit bag hanging in the back of a limosine.

Wow.  I've never written a play like that, not even close, but...I thought, what a good exercise.

So look around your room.  Find a container...perhaps, an unlikely container.  Look inside, and make characters with the things inside.

Write a page or two...a scene, a monologue...something.

Sometimes...it's just nice to eat somewhere else, even though you could go to your favourite restaurant.

As usual, post in the feedback section under your own thread and comment on other's work.

Have fun.

Paddy

It's the same with "bigger" stories, say movies. I say "Columbus Day" the other night and it's essentially a story that takes place in the park. The park is the container.
