Writing Prompt: An Abandoned Broken Umbrella

I saw this umbrella in our village and I wondered why it got broken. Then I thought that this would be a cool writing prompt. So here are the rules.


  1. Describe the broken umbrella. What is its color? In what way is it mangled? Where did you see it? Add any other details that you wish.
  2. Imagine the owner of the umbrella. The characteristics of the owner must be linked to what the umbrella looks like.
  3. Think of another character who the owner had a conflict with
  4. Think of a scene that explains why the umbrella got broken and why it was abandoned on the streets
