With the weather’s frozen fingers taking hold once more, it is a great time to snuggle up with the laptop or note-book and pen and write up your own blizzard.
So that is the challenge for you this week. Below you will see three scenarios which are to be set in a snow storm. Have a go at all three and see where it leads you.
1. Two horses in a field with no blankets/coats or shelter.
2. A hearse loaded with a full coffin slides into a ditch down a country lane on the way to the cemetery.
3. In the hot tub on a snowy day!
Once you've tried each of these, take the one you think works best and develop it into a piece of writing for a short story magazine. It might be worth having a magazine in mind before you start.
So what are you waiting for, get writing.
