Writing Tools: Weather Dilemmas By Susan Hanniford Crowley

A single person on a winter expedition in a snowstorm

For today, we are talking about a very important writing tool. It’s using your characters’ environment to set a mood or present a challenge in the plot. In some stories, the weather and how the characters react to it is the story.

The movie “Day After Tomorrow” was based on the fiction novel The Coming Global Superstorm by Art Bell and Whitley Strieber.

There is a lot of non-faction facts in fiction. Even in a fantasy novel that has battles, you can be sure that the author has studied historical battles.

In this case, we are looking at an incoming storm. Write what you do to prepare or how you are already prepared. Go into the detail of the storm, how it starts, and looks and sounds. Scents if you find them. Some people can smell snow in the wind.

Whether you are having a snowstorm, tornado, tsunami, volcano, etc., this is an opportunity to use what you know. For your characters, trying to survive shows their true mettle. Weaknesses are revealed as well as strengths.

Remember while you’re writing this that survivors tell the tale. When writing fiction there will be lots of things that you make up, but putting some non-fiction in it makes it more relatable and believable.

So go forth and while you are safe from the storm write. If your journey started with an evacuation, write that too.

In all my paranormal adventure romance fiction novels whether sweet or steamy, I always have some things that are absolutely fact. To check out my books, visit https://www.amazon.com/kindle-dbs/entity/author/B004YXOGXG
