Exercise Wednesday: A hard rain’s gonna fall

April 10, 2013

Showers, flowers. “Into every life a little rain must fall.” This month, before your character can reap the benefits of a good watering, soak ‘er. Dump a storm-cloud’s worth of bad luck into her life. Please be specific and concrete. Think carefully about what would most threaten your character’s day-to-day existence and then bring it on.

And no do-overs for her. Let genuine consequences ensue. Okay? She’ll be all the better for it, trust me.

Have a lovely April–and carry an umbrella!
Have fun! And I’ll see you in October!
Jamie Morris,
Director of Woodstream Writers

    Hmm…. I think I’m in the mood to see how much rain some characters can take. Anyone else? 🙂
