Writing Prompt: The Skill Builder: I’ve Got a Bad Feeling About This

By Janice Hardy, @Janice_Hardy

This week’s prompt focuses on an exercise designed to work on a particular skill or technique, such as a POV exercise or character builder. Today’s skill: Foreshadowing.

Write a scene that foreshadows a problem or event.

Try to walk that line between hinting at something to come, and stating it outright (that’s telegraphing and you don’t want to go that far). Aim for a sense that all is not well or that something is brewing n the horizon—foreshadowing can hint about good things as well as bad.

If you want a little help, here are some articles on foreshadowing to review first.
