On five small, separate scraps of paper write down the five senses: sound, sight, touch, smell and taste. Now turn the pieces over so that you cannot see the text. Choose a single scrap at random.
Write a story about the loss of that sense. For instance, if you chose the “sight” piece of paper, write about someone who is losing or has lost their vision.
