Writing, Neighborhood Life, Creativity and Imagination
Eva, a would-be writer, sits on her New York City stoop with her notebook, waiting for something to happen. She has been given a homework assignment to record goings-on in her Manhattan neighborhood. Each neighbor who passes offers her useless writing tips, but it isn't until Eva takes matters into her own hands that exciting things begin to happen in her neighborhood — enough to make a great story!
A hilarious sequence of happenings ensues and Eva learns that you can find inspiration for writing anywhere if you observe carefully enough.
