In 400 words or less, write a scene in which a character sustains an injury
while hiking on a wilderness trail.

__________________________________

Was the hiker alone or in a group? Where did the hike take place? Describe
the wilderness. What caused the injury? What emotions are expressed or
implied? Fear? Anxiety?Confidence? Courage? Is the character totally
incapacitated or able to move along the trail? If with a group, how do they
react?

In your critique, tell the author whether you could imagine the scene in
your mind. Did the behavior feel genuine or realistic? Were you especially
interested in any particular part of the story? Or did you find any part of
the story unbelievable or poorly constructed?
