Last week we talked about foods as a source of inspiration and an excellent trigger for connections to other people’s own memories and experiences. This week, we are going to take a look at atmosphere, and working to describe a place (either real or imaginary) that brings you pure joy or peace. This “happy place” as it’s so often referred to, is uniquely personal to you, but in describing the details of your own utopia, you can invite your readers to experience an intimate part of your imagination.
Take ten minutes today to describe your “happy place” in vivid detail. Use sights, sounds and sensations, paying particular attention to atmosphere and energy.
