Working on the theory that practical experience helps a writer bring plots to life, I recently took a leap of faith and jumped off a very high platform and ziplined across an eighty metre canyon.
Determined to eke every moment of terror out of the trip, I put trust in the harness and spreadeagled my body as I hurtled down in the green abyss. I could hear my scream – of elation? – or terror? echoing around me.
Now how can I incorporate this into a story? Stay tuned.
