Writing Exercise

Writing Strangers
(a point of view exercise)
Think about a person whom you encounter in your daily life, but don’t give much thought to: the telemarketer who interrupted your dinner, the DMV guy who made you wait in line for an hour, the stranger on the bus who talked to herself the whole ride. Then, write a story from that character's point of view, depicting their situation with more complexity than you would ordinarily give them credit for during the contexts in which you encounter them.
