Strange Day – Stream of Consciousness Saturday #SoCS

socs-badge-2015

Today is Halloween, a holiday where we celebrate the strange and unusual. We love to share ghost stories. We like to scare people by dressing up as monsters. We marathon horror movies. You may even be plagued by strange dreams at night (I know I have been).

Ghosts, witches, and everything weird, frightening, and scary take center stage on this day where strangeness rules supreme. So have fun and celebrate all things strange today!

  1. Evil writer smirk. This will appear as soon as your mind says ‘plot twist’. You will raise your head from your laptop or notepad and the evil smirk will be creeping over your face.
  2. Loved ones quickly leave the room. The sight of your evil writer smirkwill make those around you feel uncomfortable and want to exit the room quickly. Even though they love and care for you there is a darker side to you which they still don’t understand.
  3. Plot twist rationale. You run through your rationale forusing a plot twist. It will energise your story whilst at the same time advancing your plot.
