Don’t you hate unpredictable weather? No matter , whether its rain or shine , you can never be quite  ready for it.  One minute it’s a nice sunny day and then BOOM ! The thunder hits and next thing you know it your drenched from the pouring rain. I should know because I’ve had it happen to me. But when   this type of weather comes you want to be  ready for it.  

Wait don’t worry. This is not a weather report or some ad review for new weather apparel . No .

I’m talking about the unpredictable weather of my work in progress  werewolf novel , During the Blue  Hour where  I  am currently on chapter 13 of my 2nd draft. 

In my second draft the weather at the start of the novel has been one way  for such a long time that when this terrible snow storm hits unexpectedly, the people of the mountain desert town, North Sun doesn’t  know what to do.

The storm  in the novel starts  off  lightly. But  even this is a surprise to the people because they have never seen snow before. Only in books. 

The  people of the land as I like to call them only know  the desert  and the heat. So when this storm  hits they have really no tools to combat it. They are caught entirely in the lurch of the storm .

From there I put all  the characters  of my book in peril. Even the background characters that are not mentioned .  Because  remember  the weather will be affecting the whole town.

But the characters that have to face the weather are put through greater  situations .

And by  dealing with the weather  changing they  are dealing  with themselves  changing.  Because  characters need to  change in the course of writing the novel.

And with the weather changing  it also  means  that the stakes are  growing  substantially for the existence  of the characters, bringing conflict in its wake. 

The weather as an environmental conflict  is a great way  to create  obstacles. Another villain of course 

It  also is represented by many symbols in my novel depicting a new awareness of each character of   what they are feeling .

The  weather changing is also foreshadowing a great  battle that will carry out  throughout the series  once it’s done . So my  character  better  be ready.
