Notebooking Daily Writing Exercise August 1, 2015

Daily Exercise Genre: Narrative thread.

About today's writing prompt genre: Take the following story aspect and work it into a piece, whether poetry or prose, whether you explore what led up to this place in the story, it begins with the thread, or the thread is merely a tiny aspect of the story that has crystallized around the original image. However you choose to write it, use the following as a jumping off point.

Today's thread is...

You'd always hated the wilderness, and this is exactly why.

Find a way to work that sentence into a piece. What is so bad about the wilderness? A lot of that depends upon point of view, your character's perspective. Some of it could be circumstance, a healthy heaping of unluckiness perhaps. However you figure it, pick a direction and run with it (which could also end up in disaster in the wild).
