For the writers out there and anyone you wants to try it, your challenge is as follows:
Your character walks to the store and after purchasing a few things comes out. Night has fallen as well as a thick fog. He or she starts walking. A gunshot blasts close, so close your character smells the powder.
It’s up to you to fill in the rest. Don’t hold back. Let your imagination run wild. Remember it’s a matter of life and death. Use all your senses. Open yourself up to ideas outside the norm. Have fun with it. I welcome those writing the scene to post it in the comment box.
Now for more fun. Pi-Con is a delightful science fiction, fantasy, and horror convention in Connecticut. It starts on Friday, July 31st at 9 a.m. with the Writers Workshops (9 a.m. to 6 p.m.), which consists of workshops, panels, and fun stuff for writers of all skill levels. After that the convention kicks into high gear with science fiction, fantasy and horror panels, events, and just plain fun. Visit http://pi-con.org/ for more information including registration and hotel information. It’s going to be at the Sheraton at Bradley Airport (Windsor Locks, Connecticut). Woo hoo! I will be there and I will be teaching in the Writers Workshops as well as participating in other events during the weekend convention.
Now back to writing! What is your life and death scene?
