Actions Speak Louder than Words

You've seen the commercial. It says, "Gotta go, gotta go, gotta go right now," or something close to that. It shows people in the middle of something that must leave because they "gotta go." But it doesn't say what they need to do...viewers know. They have to find a bathroom.

Create a scene that shows action that leads the reader to a conclusion. Here are a few ideas or use one of your own:

  • A character that has to sneeze
  • A bloated, gassy character that needs to...well pass gas.
  • A character with an itch
