Preptober Prompts Week 3 Day 5 – 2018

Mm, weather affecting the plot. This is something I stink at thinking about. XD I guess mostly the changing temperature would be a factor, and I’d have to remember to show that through the characters’ wardrobe and responses to being outdoors and that kind of thing. As far as the main plot… I’m not sure it does affect it that much. The plot is pretty independent of seasons (at least unless/until we get into winter), so I don’t think it really affects the main happenings of the story.

Preptober Prompts Week 3 Day 2 – 2018

My favorite things about fall are the colors and the crisp weather that’s not quite too cold yet. There’s such a… wonder about fall. That kind you get from Hallmark movies set in the country, the kind that makes you wish you could leave the city and spend time in the wide open spaces of the world, enjoying the fresh air and sunshine. I love that about fall.

Upon consulting my story timeline, I’ve found that the Dark War Trilogy does extend into autumn, so it will no doubt include a scene where Coraline and her “siblings” go to the apple grove. (I promise I’m not trying to be repetitive!) There will be a somber tone to the scene, since it’s the first trip to the orchard since Eliot’s death, but there will also be that element of quiet wonder, the admiring of changing leaves, and the refreshing crisp air. It’ll be a little pocket of peace and good memories amidst the chaos that’s happening in the story at that point.

Make sure to check out Leila’s original prompt post. Her scene sounds really interesting. ^-^
