Last week I had a sinus infection and over the weekend I contracted strep throat. I haven’t been this ill in a long time. As I continue to struggle, unable to eat, with my throat as raw as any uncooked steak, I considered description. How would I describe this experience?
Many times we put our characters into a situation where they are injured or sick. Those paragraphs can be some of the most difficult writing that I do.
With that in mind, hump day improvisation is dedicated to suffering. Your task is to write one or two sentences describing your characters agony or illness. At the end of the day I will post mine.
