It’s amazing the stories you can see outside a window.

To be fair, it has to be a window with a view of somewhere fairly busy. If you had a window in the middle of Dartmoor for example, the view would be amazing, inspirational even, but you wouldn’t get a lot of ideas for characters.

Bus windows are good. You see people for a brief moment and that snapshot can be enough to trigger something off. Why is she all in red? Why does he look so angry? Why did those two stop holding hands when the other one came up? What is that dog so angry about?

But from my window onto the street, especially as I overlook a bus stop, I can see entire stories. I can hear the couple arguing, I can see the children playing their games, I can see all those conversations drivers have.

Get yourself to a window and have a look. There’s a world of stories out there
