What is the most dramatic moment of your life? Did you have an emotion so overwhelming that you could barely cope?
In your writing today or this weekend, use this as a motivation for a story or scene. First, write about it exactly as it happened to you. Slow-down-the-moment with details, description and your thoughts as it happened. Quicken the pace when there is action with active verbs, dialogue and fragments of sentences.
Next, use this idea but turn it into FICTION. Create an imaginary character. Have this event happen to him or her. How can you make it MORE dramatic? MORE suspenseful? Make it WORSE? Heighten the emotion for the reader? Add more conflict and make it more important to the main character.
