Freewrite #8: (For WriMos) Under Pressure

Since it’s Camp NaNo I thought it would be fun to tailor July’s “challenges” to our NaNo projects. The following scenarios should only be thought of as fun exercises using your Camp NaNo character(s). Don’t feel obligated to actually include them into your manuscript.


When characters are put under extreme pressure, their actions says something about the type of person they are.

The neighborhood geek could actually be a courageous hero.

And the bully? A cuddly kitten!

 

Your challenge is to choose a character from your current WIP and put them in one (or more) of the following situations:

  • Stuck in an elevator with no way to contact anyone
  • Stranded and needs medical attention
  • Is a witness to a robbery in progress
  • They’ve just found out there’s a bomb in the building

 

Are they as great as Flynn??

 

You’ve got two weeks! Post it on your blog and leave a link in the comments.

  1. Nice! I would love to do this challenge, but I’m swamped in so many writing things that I need to have done, that I’ll probably wait until next week or something. But it looks like a great way to boost up WriMo count.

      1. The story is about teen Amish girl who found hope through the accident. It will not only touch and change her, but the other people involved in her community and in Englishers’ community.
