Coffee break exercise: Weather
Whatever the weather, come up with a new piece of creative writing in this week's exercise
Set the timer for five minutes. Take a large sheet of paper and list as many types of weather as you can think of. Include any words or phrases that bring back a memory. Use the senses as much as you can.
Pick one of the ideas and use the rest of the time to create a poem or the beginning of a story that features a character’s reaction to that type of weather. For instance, has a violent storm prevented someone from leaving a place where they don’t feel safe?
