I just wanted to go back to the whole thing about smell and writing.
I was out the other day taking the dog for a walk. I stopped and closed my eyes. The scent in the air was one of trees coming out of hibernation. Of things growing once again. The smell was woody and earthy and takes me back to a time when things were easier.
Take yourself outside today and see what you notice in the air. It just might be the next idea for you story.
