Writing authentic stories make it meaningful. You can take inspiration from real life examples or even from your personal life. This way, you can make the story way more authentic.
- - Just write the story based on the Picture shown. Note every detail of the picture. Do not make your own deductions in the picture, like creating another imaginary character or steering away from the situation.
- - Do not over think while writing your story. It's pure waste of time and shows a lack of authenticity.
- - Perceive the shown picture in just one sentence. This is most critical part and this is where your personality is displayed. For instance, in the following picture, my first perception is Gorkha Soldiers Resting after Training Exercise. But for some others, it may be, Soldiers martyred after a battle with enemies. So, it all depends on your thinking.
