Everything he knows about writing – #3

‘Everything he knows about writing’ is an Apparently a Writer blog series, where I am posting my way through the 600 writing topics listed in John Marsden’s book Everything I know About Writing. Find the explanatory post here, and all posts in the series here. Topics 1-93 fall under the category “Quickies”.

  1. Weather control mediator: mediates discussions between various interest groups when determining controlled weather cycles.
  2. Transplant spiritual reconciliation counselor: helping modern transplant patients reconcile their religious beliefs with their need to accept a man-made transplant.
  3. EChip regulator: determines human eligibility for insertion of education enhancer chip to be implanted in brain.

Today’s post was hard folks! It challenged me to be creative and imaginative, but within the confines of logic and realism. It’s exactly the kind of activity I need to keep doing for the story I have in mind. A very valuable exercise 🙂
