Under The Weather

What colour is the sky in your fiction? Is it always blue or a constant, dreary grey? Does it ever stop raining or never start? Make the elements work for you, whether or not you think it's a big subject in your stories. Add some thunder to your themes and line your clouds with silver when we talk about all the ways to weave the weather into your words.


(Note for newcomers: We actually meet in the Atrium, next door, but access is through the coffee shop. If the coffee shop is closed then there is a security guard at the Atrium's Blanshard St entrance who will usually let you in.)

    Thanks for the presentation Peter, it was thought provoking like a spring sun shower. ; )

    Thanks Peter for the lead. When we think of our fictional places, the weather is always there but we don't think about 'showing it'. Your points will help do so. I could not remember the name of a 'weather story' that was an interesting read, had to ask my partner, it was Issac's storm. Here is link to description.

    Which I thought had interesting insight into the early days of meteorology.

    Good discussion. The weather outside made a good backdrop :) Sorry I had to leave early.
