Creative Writing: just where do you start?

I’ve been thinking, and I’ve decided my creative muscles need some flexing. The last time I wrote anything creative that I can remember was some scripting and monologue work for AS Theatre Studies, 2 years ago! As for other forms I haven’t completed a play since year 11 or a short story since year 10. I think It’s about time I got back into it, just for pleasure of course. Some people are simply born to write plays or poetry or novels and I think if that were me I would know by now. I figure it’ll be worth a shot though! 

The essential ingredient is something strong to write about of course… hmmm… And then I’ll need some strong characters with motivations, back stories etc. A situation, some good conflicts for them to battle through (or perhaps just one, I think I’ll start small…) and some locations.

Shouldn’t be too hard!
