Foreshadowing


Today's prompt will work to develop foreshadowing through the use of a sunrise or sunset. By their nature these acts of nature represent a beginning or an end, but by showing them, a writer can create an element of foreshadowing. For example, if the sun rises brightening fog that lays like a shroud over a tiny village, it creates an eerie sense that something could go wrong in that tiny village.

Today's Pumping Your Muse Prompt

Write a scene that incorporates a sunrise or sunset and an element of foreshadowing of things to come.
