|Thanks to VikLit for this great Idea|
JULIE MUSIL posted something on her blog the other day about taking a notebook to her son’s football camp and noting details. She wrote about the location, the artificial turf, the weather and Powerade stations where players could get a quick hydrating drink.
She wrote about the people around her–what they wore, their haircuts, the way their moms and dad watched or read or talked on their cell phones.
Small details about sights and sounds and activities.
There’s nothing like being able to recreate a real life scene in your fictional one, and Julie’s details are exactly what will help do that.
So today, while you’re celebrating small things, take a notebook along with you and write down some of them. When you’re in the middle of a scene, read those details and see which ones will Jazz Up your story and bring it to life.
Hope you’ll stop by some other blogger sites and see what they’re celebrating this week.
