Thursday Prompt: Objects around the house
Where do you find these story objects you ask? Do you keep a curio cabinet or nik-naks on your bookshelves? My personal favorite is the junk drawer. There are a ton of treasures in there to toss into a story.
Once you have where your objects are coming from, don't think about it just reach out and pick three random things. If you need to time yourself with say five seconds to pick out items. That shuts off the thinker so you can just grab. :)
Now sit back at your desk with your muse's treasures and look them over. You can turn your thinker back on again here and examine your objects and see if they have a story to tell on their own or where you can add them into a dark mystery or would an elf keep that in his pouch?
Have fun and stretch your imagination as you charge your muse with the cool stuff you walk by every day. Oh and don't forget to visit us at JLBCreatives.com for a great read or to submit your manuscript :)
