Well, Katherine Jones was going to have another post for today, but she’s directly in the path of Hurricane Sandy and has been spending all of her time preparing for the storm. I honestly have been thinking for most of the day about what to write here, and I still have nothing. However, I am very excited to see what happens with the Frankenstorm! I’ve lived in both New Hampshire and Virginia Beach, and so I’m no stranger to either nor’easters or hurricanes, but a mix of the two has me excited. Don’t get me wrong, I feel for anyone who is in the direct path of the storm. I’m only likely to get hit by the edge, if anything, but I thought this might be a good idea for a challenge post. However, this isn’t your normal challenge post. Often in fiction we anthropomorphise (or give human qualities to) animals, plants, landscape features, and even weather. So, your challenge today is to turn Hurricane Sandy into a workable character. You can write a story from the hurricane’s point of view, or you could just work-up a lengthy character sketch. However, you must actually anthropomorphise the hurricane, and in doing so you must explain its reasoning for threatening much of the eastern seaboard. Have fun with this challenge, and make it interesting!
