Writing prompt – cumulus

Sky and barbed wire cr Judy DarleySometimes I get mesmerised by the beauty of the sky. Walking home recently I spotted this impressive display. I think they’re stratocumulus – do correct me if I’m wrong.

I particularly love the way the barbed wire in the shot catches at them, juxtaposing the concept of freedom with the threat of being caught – trapped.

Use this as the foundation of your story. Is your character imprisoned and daydreaming about their release, or is it a less obvious form of confinement, such as a bad marriage or hated job? Will they actually escape, and if so, how?
