I've been learning English for about 10 years now. My mother's tongue is Slovenian. I will be shortly taking a Cambridge certificate test so I can get an idea of where my knowledge of English is. So, I've been thinking that I should practice my writing a bit. If I take a look at any of the practice exams I've completed so far, my writing has been dull and my sentences have been quite short. I'm not creative, so I can't convey a story that well. It always comes out as a report and not a piece of writing that you would enjoy reading.

Therefore, I decided I should write a few short stories to polish my writing skills and get a better understanding of the English language. But I really don't know what to write about. As I've stated before, I'm not a creative type of person and I can't come up with ideas to write about. What are your guys' suggestions? I'm looking for something I can write about in a couple of hours, so I can write many stories and improve faster. Also, do you think that this is a good idea to improve my English skills?

I would be thankful for any help.

P.S. Feel free to correct any grammatical errors in my post! 🙂

EDIT: Another reason for making this is that I'm quite good at informal and casual communication but lack the complex vocabulary and sentence structures needed to write proper formal documents or emails/letters.
