In honor of our first Saturday Storm, and one of my own favorite manuscripts, our prompt today is: STORMS!
Task #1- Write about an experience you’ve had with a storm or rain. It might be a frightening, stressful, fun, embarrassing, or surprising experience. Complete this task before moving to Task #2.
Task #2- (Fiction Writers) How can you make your experience into a fictional story? The Saturday Storm is kicking up a tornado to mix it all up! What interesting characters or elements can you mix into your experience? What zany, wacky, unexpected-kick can you add?
Task #2- (Non-Fiction/Faction Writers) With so many storms that have rocked our world, surely there are unique elements that can be retold. Survivors of storms have stories to tell. Good luck being a storm story chaser!
Tornadoes are unpredictable…the direction of your story has endless possibilities. I know you’ll come out with a winner. Let’s take this prompt by storm!
