Every time I travel on a train, I wonder what will happen if we suddenly stop. Here’s a prompt exploring that scenario.
Travelling alone across Europe, a solo traveler is stuck in a broken down train compartment full of strangers.
Take this writing prompt for a spin:
- Where is the traveler trying to get to, and how inconvenient is it that the trip is being delayed?
- Is he/she a seasoned traveler, or is this a first foray into the world?
- Is there any indication as to why the train is stalled? Does in the train car start to panic?
- What do the passengers do to pass the time? Do they keep to themselves or is a camaraderie formed?
