    Cause & Effect

    Discussion in 'Writing Prompts' started by Seraph751, Sep 24, 2016.

    I have been running into a lot of cause and effect in my writing lately, whether it is immediate or the effects span centuries. This got me thinking more so as this is where we we build up our arcs and how crucial it is to have smooth transitions or bumpy transitions that work with the their causes or effects. I hope you enjoy this! :D

    Chose a cause and effect based on the effect above your post.
    By the way, effect can be immediate, short-term, long-term, or something that just occurs at a later point.

    Example:
    Cause: Opposite charges build up
    Effects: Lightning is made

    Cause: Lightning Strikes:
    Effect: Earth Enrichens
