Obituaries for Inspiration

Turning to the obituaries may seem like a strange place to look for inspiration, but those strangers have stories to tell. I found inspiration for an upcoming novella from the obituary of an extraordinary WWII hero who didn’t think of himself as one.

Writing Exercise – Go to the obituaries and choose a person to write about. Write a scene from that person’s life. Or create a story with them as the main character. Who knows you may end up with a short story.
