Midweek writing prompt – weather

Rainy weather cr James HainsworthI’ve always been fascinated by how a character’s feelings or behaviour can be emphasised to the reader through a sense of place. Midge Taylor’s artwork made me consider this anew and think about how the weather can be harnessed to highlight themes in your writing.

Think of a couple arguing about a betrayal in the lashing rain or a lost child being searched for in sunshine. How does the weather enhance or alter the atmosphere of your story?
