Writing Prompt #14

As usual, let me remind you that you can share your responses to the prompt either in the comments on this post, or in the comments on my response. If your response to the prompt is too long, let me know in the comments and we’ll get it posted as a regular post!

So, here’s a topic that’s at the forefront of my mind and is very difficult to talk about: illness. Be it injury or a sickness that has taken hold, the language surrounding being unwell is tired and trite. How do you make a character’s physical suffering unique and compelling? Now go be cruel to an imaginary person and give them boils or something.
