Technically, I missed yesterday's post for the challenge since it was after midnight before I shared it. But, hey! It was still 11:00 somewhere. *nervous laugh* The main thing I want to remember is that I did it and it's done. To let you know how tired I've been after the holidays, I even put the blog post for yesterday on my home page! *sigh* It's moved to it's correct place now, but y'all please excuse me and know that I'm going to keep going and not let this kind of thing discourage me.
Read on to see my response to yesterday's challenge prompt.
#writingthesenseschallenge Day 4 - Scent Inspiration Board
Yesterday, I focused on scents that inspire my writing. My characters will be traveling a lot so they'll enounter scents like freshly chopped wood, wood smoke, pine/trees of the forest, rain, and some kind of warm drink. Liha grows up in a what amounts to a huge natural water garden so there are flowers, herbs, and line-dried linens. Both my MC's might encounter the scent of incense at some point. And Zec might encounter the scent of metal-working, though he will not work the metal himself. All my characters will face the scent of sweat as they hike woodland trails and go through rigorous training. And burning candles are used for light so they'd encounter that scent, too.
What kind of scents inspire your writing? I'd love to hear about them in the comments below or on Instagram. Don't forget to share social media posts with the hashtag #writingthesenseschallenge so I can find them!
