Looking for short story ideas? Try browsing this site, courtesy of my friend Joyce. Someone with too much time on their hands (clearly!) has gone through Google street view, and captured the most interesting stills. The result is a remarkable collection of images, every one of which could inspire a story. (Beware - the images take a while to load up, at least they do on my aging laptop, so be patient.)
I think my favourite is the fox squeezing through a wrought-iron gate. You'll need to scroll down some way to find it. The guy trying to calm his horse in the middle of the road - that has to be somewhere in the west of Ireland. Talking of which - Happy St Patrick's Day to all the Irish out there!
