Prompt: Colder/Hotter than....

Post by Prof. Sky Alton »

It’s getting chilly in the Book Club this month. Temperature is a very useful tool in the writer’s arsenal as it’s one of the best ways to force your reader to put themselves in the characters shoes. Though none of us (I hope) has ever encountered a dementor, it’s incredibly easy to relate to the feeling that you’ll never be warm again

This prompt is pretty simple. We’d like you to write a story or scene (200 words or more) where you use temperature to either advance the plot or make your writing more real for your reader. Remember that vivid description and using all your protagonists senses will help a lot with this.

You’ll earn 20 beans for completing this prompt as well as it counting towards the chance to snag our shiny Quill and Ink award.

There is no deadline as such for these prompts but if you’d like it to count towards your chance of earning the award for a specific year, we’ll need it by the end of that school year. If you’re comfortable sharing, then post below. If not, email your story to us via hol.bookclub @ (without the spaces). Oh and remember it’s a good idea to check through your piece carefully for spelling and grammatical errors as they make it harder for people to properly enjoy your work.
