So, you know how phones have that app/widget where you can count down years, months, days, hours, minutes, and seconds to an event? I have one on my home screen counting down to the day before I turn 21. That is the day I plan on going in to apply for adopting a dog if I can’t do it sooner. Hopefully by then I will be happily moved into an apartment with my best friend. We’re currently looking and she knows my plans and is all for them. 🙂
What is your character counting down to so obsessively? How are they doing it? If you don’t have a character already picked out make one up by describing the person that is counting down to the strangest event you can think of.
After you’ve introduced the countdown and the character tell the story of the day the countdown reaches zero.
