WIP Wednesday

January 14, 2009 | WIP Wednesday

In December, Seattle had a rare winter storm lasting for more than a week. Snowbound! I was fortunate to have electricity and plenty of dog food–the true essentials of life.

Naturally, the storm made me think about stranding a story couple somewhere. Tricky though, places that routinely get lots of snow are set up to cope with the white stuff. While places that don’t get severe snow storms, like Seattle, are a great deal less plausible.

Sadly, fiction has to make sense, unlike real life.

I like the idea of stranding couples on a tropical island, trapping them in an elevator, or forcing them to rely only each other. All of these have been done, but there’s always fresh twists. Tell me about your favorite pressure-cooker situations…
