I didn't get behind on my IG posts but the weekend was a blur. I did get behind here on the blog. So against my usual practice, I'm blogging on Sunday. Read on to see my responses to both of the challenges on Friday and Saturday.
#writingthesenseschallenge Days 11 - 12
The scent sketch challenge on day 11 had me stumped for a bit. How does one sketch out a scent? I thought about creating a fictional menu for one of the inns in my story. I ended up sharing a list of scents my characters would confront on the trail and described them a little.
Day 12 was all about the sense of touch...or feelings...or textures...whichever helps you most in your writing. I chose again to describe some of the textures my characters would come in contact with in Perodyll Forest. For a place that might not even show up in my final manuscript, I seem to be fixating on it. Perhaps it's meant to be there after all.
#fantasywipjanuary Days 11 - 12
Day 11's prompt asked about our MC's siblings. Mine don't have siblings, at least as far as either of them know. Zec doesn't have siblings for sure. He was the first child of his parents' marriage and both of his parents are dead. Liha could have siblings but she may never know because of her circumstances.
Day 12 was fun. If I was stranded in my WIP, what three things would I take with me. Since I worked from the theory that it would happen suddenly, I chose hair clips (usually how I fix my hair), my glasses (which I am never without), and a handkerchief or at least a pocketful of facial tissues because of my allergies.
Did you join in the fun this weekend? If so, I'd love to see your responses in the comments below, though at this point I feel more like I'm talking to myself. I checked the hashtag yesterday and discovered on my posts have it. This is cool with me. I've always been a weirdo among weirdos so I'm used to others not understanding where I'm coming from. You do your thing; I'll keep doing my own thing; and the world goes round and round... :) It could also just mean that people may want to do this challenge during another month that fits better with their schedule. That's cool, too. If you are among that number, please go ahead and add that hashtag (#writingthesenseschallenge) so I can follow your progress.
