Quick Writing Ideas on Grocery Shopping

If you're looking for a writing prompt that'll reveal a lot about your main character, send her to the grocery store or market. What items would be on her list? Does she keep an actual list or wing it? What do her choices say about her? You can understand a lot about a person based on how she shops and what she buys. For example, her store and item choices could reflect how she... spends her time, feels about money, worries about her health, wants to impress others, and a plethora of other things.


What if she runs into someone unexpected--someone she doesn't want to see? What does she do? Write a scene with an uncomfortable grocery store run-in.
