Stepping into nature, by just opening your door and soaking in delight of a new day, will give you renewed imagination and a penchant for a novel idea, or anecdote. Open window near your work area, and bend one ear to what is happening just beyond your windowsill. Right then a descriptive scene could come alive, as you pen cool breezes or gentle raindrops. That annoying mosquito buzzing around can agitate your character into deeds you have not thought of.
As a writer, your life depends on an abundant choice of words, descriptive passages, and distinctive details. Color, sound, aromas, texture, and even taste of perfectly brewed coffee will add spice to your lines and give you basis for untold tales.
Whether day is sunny, or cloudy, bone-chilling cold or you are in a tropical heat-wave, take note, breathe it in, and add it to your writing. You will be amazed at clarity and beauty your writing will take on, and how satisfying it will be to your readers. You can place them anywhere and in any time frame with right words.
