As it Happens-Sunday Chatter

Here it is, the beginning of March. I have to admit that rather than coming in like a lion, the month came in sort of like a rather wintry tomcat.

Weather has played a rather large character role in many books and movies. Game of Thrones comes to mind. The dune saga. Grapes of Wrath.

So, while thinking of Gene Kelly doing Singing in the Rain, let me ask, have you ever used weather in your stories as a means of either exploring your character or advancing the plot.

  1. I tend to write my characters into a hot setting of summer because that’s what I know best. I write in a little rain when I want them to be comfortable. Sitting here thinking about it, I don’t think I have ever written a snowy or wintry scene.

    I try to do that, but I end up forgetting that was my intention, and it ends up like, “Wait… why did I mention the weather again?”
