Fun for Friday: Fireworks, from a Different Perspective

Most readers of this blog have probably seen fireworks in person at some point in their lives. If you haven’t seen them live, you’ve probably seen video of fireworks. Or, if you haven’t seen them, you may have heard them or felt their booms rattle through your body.

But imagine if you had never seen, heard, or felt fireworks in your life. Suddenly, there are immensely loud explosions and bright, colorful lights in the sky. What would you think they are? How would you react? Whether you’re writing about a fantasy character or an alien race that has never experienced the sights and sounds of fireworks, writing a little piece about a character’s first experience with fireworks could be a fun exercise to try as a bit of character development. Or you could even write a whole story about fireworks from this different perspective!
