Words and Wonder
Sunday, October 21, 2012
Detail music, clatter, weather's pings, and conversation to provide texture to the beginning of a freewriting session. Listen to what rushes around you in unusual ways. Duplicate sounds in phonetics.
Let the sounds lead you to ideas. Write for fifteen minutes.
Take a break.
Begin with background noises and distractions to set the stage. Enrich a character or characters by the dimension of sounds. Let cacophony elevate emotion in the scene. Add a twist of humor.
Escalate tension between a couple at a coffee shop. Begin with song lyrics, add machinery, noise of cutlery and drinking glasses. Try a one-sided rant.. How will silence intrude?
