Write about a character or characters who are searching for someone. Perhaps a young man is scanning the crowd at a club, looking for his ex-girlfriend. Maybe a search party is wading through tall grass, hoping they find a little girl safe and sound. Or possibly a resident advisor is stalking the halls of a residence hall, dead-set on discovering the source of the drunken hollering they heard a moment before. Whatever your approach, try to keep the emotion behind the search at the forefront of the story. Give this exercise fifteen minutes of your time.
Write it up and see what happens.
