Focusing on the single question 'Why?' can lead
to all sorts of ideas. For each 'why?' you
need to come up with a 'because'. And every 'because' should
lead to another 'why?'
All you need is a starting point - let's
say that someone has been killed. Why? Well,
that's up to you, but you already have the beginnings
of a story.
Here's a version that I came up with - it
only took me a few seconds, pretty much
straight off the top of my head:
Try continuing this idea, or start again
with an idea of your own.
Here's another example. You might start off with someone taking
a phone call from a colleague who says she's
going to be late for work. He asks her why. She gives an answer:
maybe she missed the
bus. He asks her why - and for every answer she gives
he keeps asking why. Eventually
we'll get to the heart of the problem with her life (which
could be fascinating to write
about). Or perhaps her answers will become more and more absurd,
which might trigger
other questions, thoughts and ideas in your head.
You can play this game with someone else
too. It can work really well and generate lots
of ideas - and it's great fun!
