Pick a dysfunctional family you know well (this might be a TV family). Write a page or two of first person thoughts for each member of the family, reflecting the person's view of the family's problems. Try to be fair to each person, even those of whom you disapprove. Read the pages over. Is there a story here? Are you interested in writing it?
