Throughout your travels, take a moment to people watch. Pick a particularly interesting person out. Add that person to your mix. Do not approach them or ask them about who they are. Imagine it. Write their story. What brought them to the place where you saw them? What is their current set of circumstances? What goes on in their mind?
Variety in a longer story adds spice. It can add freshness to a collection of poems, essays, or short stories.
Have some fun with it!
