"Raymond’s eye for telling detail is very fine, as one expects of an accomplished writer, but to this she adds the informing eye of a natural historian of place.”
— John Keeble, author of Nocturnal America

Weekly Writing: Decisions

We all know those people who are so confident, so sure of themselves, that decisions come quickly and easily. (Aren’t they annoying?) But for most of us, as this article points out, making decisions is challenging and can even be exhausting.

Write about a decision that you — or your character — needs to make. Write about  making this decision, in two versions: one in which you weigh the pros and cons and make a thoughtful, informed decision; then write another in which you just go for it. Don’t forget to write about the consequences for each scenario!
