The Phone Call
The phone is an instrument. How it is used depends on circumstances. When a telemarketer calls it can add frustration or irritation to a scene. When a character calls with news, what happens next depends on what the news comes through the receiver.
Write a scene that depicts day-to-day life until the phone rings. Use the phone call as an agent of change. What changes is up to your and your muse. Changes can build slowly with repeated calls, or all at once with one call. Riiing...the phone is for you.
