Use These 18 Images to Inspire Your Own Short Story
We provide the visual ingredients to get you started. Your job is to create an original story from these characters, settings and conflicts.
By Nicole Daniels and Natalie Proulx
Do you enjoy writing short stories or other works of fiction? How do you find inspiration for what you write?
In this activity, we invite you to create your own short story inspired by photographs and illustrations from our Picture Prompts series.
Think of this exercise a little bit like cooking with a recipe. We’ll give you options for your main ingredients: You’ll choose a main character , setting and conflict from the images we’ve rounded up below. Then follow the steps to plan, write, revise and share your story.
But, as with cooking, you don’t have to stick to the recipe exactly as it’s written. We encourage you to experiment with, build on and be inspired by our suggestions. We want you to use your own ideas, identity and imagination to come up with an original creative work.
When you’ve finished your story, you can share the opening lines in the comments for other students to read.
1. Choose a main character.
Related Picture Prompt
The main character, or protagonist, is the one who will guide readers through the story. This figure will be personally affected by the major conflict and will grow or change in some way because of it by the end.
Don’t worry, you can introduce additional characters later, but for now, focus on developing your main character’s appearance, personality, motivations and back story. The character you create doesn’t have to look or act exactly like the one pictured, unless you want it to. Instead, think about the image as a jumping-off point for your imagination.
Once you’ve selected your protagonist, write a short “character sketch” using the prompts below to get to know the person better:
What is your character’s name, if she or he has one? Where does that person come from?
What does your protagonist look like? What is the personality? What kind of clothes does she or he wear? What are the character’s likes and dislikes? Strengths and weaknesses?
What does the protagonist want? What is that person’s main goal in the story?
Create one fact that can help you define this character. For example, “Their mother is the most important person to them,” or “When my character was 5 years old they lost their home in a fire.” You don’t have to mention the fact in the story, but you should choose something that helps you round out the character’s identity or worldview.
If you like, you can use this graphic organizer to capture your image choice and character description.
2. Choose a setting.
While your characters might visit several locations throughout your story, consider this the place where the majority of the action will occur.
Again, think of the image you choose as inspiration. You might expand on it to create a vivid fictional world for your characters, or perhaps something in the photograph will inspire you to write about another real or imagined place and time. Or, if you like, use the setting exactly as pictured.
After you’ve selected a setting, in the same way you sketched out your main character, use these questions to help you further build the backdrop of your story:
What planet, country, region or town is the story set in? What era, year, season or time of day does it take place? What is the cultural and political climate like at this time in this space?
What are the sights, sounds, smells, tastes and textures characters would experience in this setting? What mood or feeling does it evoke?
What value does this setting have to your character? Is it familiar, new, strange, scary or exciting to that person?
You can add the image and description of your setting to your graphic organizer .
3. Choose a conflict.
The conflict, or problem, is the engine that will propel your narrative forward. It’s the obstacle that is getting in the way of your main character’s central goal or desire.
You may interpret these images however you like. Perhaps you want to take them literally — for example, your protagonist might be trying to survive a real-life earthquake. Or you might think of them more figuratively — the earthquake could be a metaphor for the rupturing of society or a broken relationship.
After you have selected an image, answer the questions below to develop your conflict in more detail. These will help you map the narrative arc, or plot, of your story (learn more about that in our related mentor text ):
Who or what is the antagonist (nature, technology, society, another person, the protagonist’s own mind, fate)?
What is the driving conflict? What does the main character want? How is the conflict preventing the character from getting it? How will the character try to solve this problem?
How was this conflict instigated? How will it finally be resolved?
How does your main character change or grow in resolving the conflict? What theme or universal message will your readers take away from this story?
Complete your graphic organizer with your conflict image and notes.
4. Map out your story.
Character, setting and conflict are just the building blocks of your story. Now you will take all those ideas you’ve brainstormed and map out your story, scene by scene. In “ Finally Write That Short Story ,” the best-selling author Curtis Sittenfeld offers this advice:
Create an outline by repeatedly asking yourself what will happen next. Thinking in terms of scenes and structure increases the likelihood that your story will be story-like — that it will be about something happening, something changing, versus being a more static slice of life.
Since you’re writing a short story, your plot should be concise. Often, short fiction revolves around a single incident and involves no more than a few characters. Still, be sure to have a clear beginning, middle and end and that each ingredient you selected above works together seamlessly.
Admittedly, this may be easier said than done. Here’s what Ms. Sittenfeld suggests if you’re not sure how to get started:
If you have a favorite short story or two, it can be illuminating to reverse-engineer them by creating their outlines and thereby better understand how they were made. (Do this with a friend, for the same story, to see if you’re in agreement about what constitutes a scene.)
If you want to try this yourself, read a short story of your choosing or select one from “ The Decameron Project ,” a recent collection of new fiction inspired by the coronavirus pandemic from The New York Times Magazine. As you read, pay attention to how the author brings the main character, setting and conflict to life, and try to map out the plot scene by scene. Then you can apply some of the “writer’s moves” you admire in this story to your own work.
To create your outline, use our story map worksheet or any other pre-writing strategy you prefer.
5. Write, revise and share.
After creating an outline, you are ready to write. You can choose to write something as short as a piece of flash fiction (we have a lesson plan for that) or as long as a novella.
During your first draft, Ms. Sittenfeld suggests:
Keep writing. And for now, don’t worry about quality and don’t think about potential readers. Your goal is not to write a great story but to finish a story. It’s normal if there’s a huge discrepancy between how good you envisioned your story being and how clumsy your actual sentences seem. In fact, it would be surprising if there were not a huge discrepancy.
Once you’ve written your story, you can go back and read it in its entirety. As you read, ask yourself: Are the characters, setting and conflict fully developed? Does my story have a distinct beginning, middle and end? Is the message I want my readers to take away from this story evident? Is my writing engaging, clear and enjoyable to read?
If you answer “no” to any of those questions — and you probably will — revise. Here are seven tips for editing your own writing .
When you have something you’re proud of, share your work! You can post the opening lines here in the comments section, or send your story to one of these dozens of outlets that publish teenagers’ writing.

Movie Review: In ‘Blue Jean,’ a nuanced picture of life as a lesbian in Margaret Thatcher’s Britain
A high school gym teacher grappling with her sexual identity is challenged on both a micro and macro level in 1988 England in “Blue Jean,” the directorial debut of Georgia Oakley, starring Rosy McEwan in theaters Friday
A high school gym teacher grappling with her sexual identity is challenged on both a micro and macro level in 1988 England in “ Blue Jean,” a quietly complex portrait of compartmentalization and self-actualization.
In October 1987, British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher gave a speech in which she bemoaned the state of education and said that “Children who need to be taught to respect traditional moral values are being taught that they have an inalienable right to be gay.” This was just part of her critique of the state of education and the agenda of “extremist teachers” pushing “political slogans” and “anti-racist mathematics” who are cheating children out of a “sound start in life.” By May of 1988, a law was passed (Section 28) that would “prohibit the promotion of homosexuality” and would remain in effect in some form until 2003. Don’t worry if the law doesn’t sound familiar either – it was news to both the film’s director and star.
The film, which opens in limited release Friday, is the assured directorial debut of Georgia Oakley, who focuses her script not on the women who went out to protest as the House of Lords debated Section 28, but on one who was still coming to terms with her own identity. Jean (Rosy McEwen) is not terribly political, and, like most teachers, keeps her private life to herself. But she’s also one whose livelihood and passion (teaching) would be directly threatened by the law. Her journey in the film is a human one – there are mistakes, deep regrets, and casualties – and it’s her flaws that make her relatable. She is not, in other words, exactly an inspirational hero.
At the beginning, Jean leads a quiet life. She lives alone in an apartment and commutes to teach gym to high schoolers and coach the girls’ netball team. She loves her work and takes it seriously but keeps a distance from both the students and her fellow teachers, eating alone at lunch and declining persistent requests to go out for a pint after work. Some nights she meets up with her girlfriend, Viv (Kerrie Hayes), and a group of other lesbians at an underground bar. Unlike Jean, who is described as a deer in headlights, these other women are out and proud. When an older woman sneers at Jean and Viv eating together, Jean shrinks while Viv goes on the offensive. In the background, radio news broadcasts speak about the looming Section 28.
The message Jean takes from all of this is to hide. In her mind, this makes sense because teachers need to set boundaries with their students and co-workers. But then a new girl arrives at school, Lois (Lucy Halliday) who is also gay and Jean’s meticulously segregated life starts to crumble, especially after Lois sees her out with Viv and friends, and Jean retreats further into herself. Is it her responsibility to look protect or guide Lois through this aspect of her life? Jean will make a shocking decision before the end of the film.
Jean is both an introvert and a product of her environment – she doesn’t speak to her mother anymore and her more conservative, heterosexual sister’s attempts at supporting Jean mostly make her feel worse. She scolds Jean for exposing her 5-year-old son to Viv, even though she drops the kid off at her apartment without any warning. Jean is also scolded by Viv for telling her nephew that she’s “a friend.”
Oakley has said she wanted to present a protagonist “without glamorization or misrepresentation,” inspired by filmmakers like Kelly Reichardt and Chantal Akerman.
“Blue Jean” is a perfect film to debut during Pride. It’s a reminder of the very recent past and the generational effects of institutionalized homophobia.
“Blue Jean,” a Magnolia Pictures release in theaters Friday, has not been rated by the Motion Picture Association. Running time: 97 minutes. Three stars out of four.

A season in pictures: Looking back at the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra in 2022-'23
The Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra plays more home games in a year than the Milwaukee Brewers and Green Bay Packers combined.
By the time the MSO wraps up the final notes of "Jaws" on July 1, it will have performed 136 concerts this season, 116 of those in its newish home, the Bradley Symphony Center. This is the orchestra's second full season with live audiences in the BSC (following a mostly virtual season in the first half of 2021, with smaller clusters of musicians performing primarily for cameras).
Courtesy of photographer Jonathan Kirn, here's a look back at the season in photos, on and off stage.
The "Jaws" film-with-orchestra concerts June 30 and July 1 also will close Yaniv Dinur's eighth and final season as the MSO's resident conductor. After conducting more than 370 concerts for the MSO, the popular Dinur is moving on to his advance his career.
His significant departure is offset by announcement of an important new arrival: Violinist Jinwoo Lee will join the orchestra when the 2023-'24 season begins as its new concertmaster.
Music director Ken-David Masur is finishing his fourth season as the MSO's leader and artistic director. By season's end, he will have conducted 28 concerts, including some big ones yet to come: Mahler's "Resurrection" Symphony June 16-17, and a June 20 program featuring star violinist Joshua Bell. True to his commitment to conduct all kinds of programs for the MSO in addition to the flagship Classics series, Masur has conducted a teen choral concert and a community concert in Ripon this season.
For the second consecutive season, Masur, who loves choral music, conducted holiday performances of Handel's "Messiah" featuring the Milwaukee Symphony Chorus. The full chorus sang in 16 concerts this season; the women of the chorus also sang in three performances of Holst's "The Planets."
The MSO hired seven new orchestra musicians this season: assistant principal bass Nash Tomey; violinists Allison Lovera and Yuanhui Fiona Zheng; bassists Brittany Conrad, Peter Hatch and Paris Myers; and clarinetist-bass clarinetist Taylor Eiffert. Violinist Laurie Shawger is retiring at the end of this season. The orchestra stands at 66 members and three acting members.
In keeping with both Masur's passion for education and the MSO's desire to cultivate a new generation of listeners, the orchestra performed 24 education and four family concerts this season, in addition to many in-school visits by musicians through its Arts in Community Education program.
