I have to write a story for school and it will need to be about five to ten pages long I'm guessing and it has to be based on Maasai warriors. I have found some information on Maasai people here: http://www.maasai-association.org/maasai.html

The trouble is I'm really stuck and have no idea what to write? Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks

First of all, think of how you want to angle your story - your POV. Could you write from the POV of a Maasai warrior? Or from someone close to them?

Also, decide what genre you want your story to be (if it's not set for you). Once you have your genre and a leading character or two, you will probably find ideas will start coming to you. Brainstorm possible plot twists and obstacles for the characters.

I usually find that once I have a very vague idea for one part of a story, the rest kind of comes flowing in.
