Writing Prompt: What's Their Story

Writing Prompt:  Find a picture of an interesting person or notice someone, while you are out-and-about shopping, and take a "mental picture" of them, or if these two options don't work for you, use our image for this post.

Now, here is the prompt.  Think back to when you played "I SPY" as a child.  Using this premise, create a character based on your person.  Answer the question: What is their story?  Create as much detail for your character as you can as you embellish on their "LIFE STORY"!

Having trouble getting started?  Take a gander at these questions, in order, to get your creative writing juices flowing!

What is their full name?
What is their occupation?
What is their age?
