Writing ideas: a lonely platform

Reading Time: 1 minute

 

Write something inspired by this image. Will you be the man, waiting on the platform? Has he missed the train and is waiting impatiently to get to somewhere important? Or has he deliberately taken a train that’s later, and quieter? What is in his bag, which is almost a briefcase? Or is it actually empty?

Or, could you write as someone watching him from a bench just out of sight, wondering these things and comparing him to their own life? Then again, perhaps if your interests turn to horror you could take inspiration from the film Phone Booth, and channel the voice of the overhead announcer introducing some kind of macabre game.
