Writing Prompt – Thursday 20th August

This photo of the River Avon in Worcestershire UK was taken during a day of heavy showers.

For your writing prompt today, think about how a change in the weather could affect the story you’re writing. Agatha Christie made good use of heavy falls of snow to keep characters in their place – usually in a threatening situation.

Think about where the action is taking place, what has happened to the weather, how long is it likely to last and how could it affect the plot of your story. Take a large sheet of paper and scribble down as many ideas as you can. There are no wrong answers – only possibilities!

What is your character going to do? Write down all possible options.

You may find that more than one story emerges. Have fun!
