Do you ever look at your own neighbours for your stories?

What's on your road? I thought this could become a fun way to practice story writing ^^
Hi , really a great idea you got there ! maybe I am going to write a story about my neighbor soon Emotion: stick out tongue . This might be interesting !
Hello,

This reminds me of my film-making seminar which I attended a few years ago. They taught us all the steps and basic techniques in writing a good script and other related stuffs. One of the advices was to start observing and analysing people around you. They said, by observing people (ex. your neighbours, anyone at the shopping malls, beggars on the street corners etc etc) would really help you in creating a good character with strong personal traits and characteristics for your films (or in this case, the same advice could be applied in writing any narrative stories). I guess, it's simply intended to make your scripts or narrative stories more "alive and realistic".Emotion: smile

P.S : but personally, I have never practised what they had taught me during that seminar. lol. [6]

Yes, that are good ways to create characters in stories or movies. Actually I love to observe people when I'm in a larger city and have nothing to do, or have to wait for a bus. I just sit down and have a look at the people that pass my field of view.
But I never had any use of it.
I never tried writing stories but you seem giving me a good idea to start writing one. Neighbour..hmmm...you know what....I still do not know who is my neighbour...may be this become a good topic to start with. Who is my neighbour!!!! Emotion: big smile
