Yesterday my sons gave me a lovely gift of light changing optic flowers. They found it at a yard sale, paid for it themselves and presented it to me with great flourish. It now sits on my desk adding some lovely feng shui movement to the space I do my journalling in.
And, of course, it got me thinking… what gifts – expected or not – have you received that were special to you? How about unwelcome gifts?
Or what if your character received a gift? Would it make her/him grateful? Uncomfortable? Sad? Happy? What would this action and the ability (or lack) to receive show about your characters?
This gave me a idea for my own work. I’ve decided that there is a space in the charm necklace worn by my heroine in WAVES OF PLEASURE and when my hero gives her a charm to put in that spot, she’s not certain how to react.
Hope your week is filled with lots of great gifts!
