Today was a wonderful day for me. I got to relive good times in my past.
It got me to thinking that our characters can take similar walks.
What would they see? Feel? Do?
Even if you never include the information in your writing, it might allow you to see deeper into your character’s mind.
Your task is to send your character somewhere new and different, somewhere where artifacts from the past pop, up in rapid succession.
Write the scene. Mention the object in terms of the memory that it triggers.
Include as many objects as you can.
Have fun with this one.
