Well, I recently sat in my living room and stared out of my window to prepare to write. The house next door is an Air BB (or some such), so a variety of people often mill about. Well, milling about this time was a shirtless guy loading up his car.
And of course I realized I needed someone in my WIP to be shirtless. Of course.
So I give today’s writing prep combination a 13/10. It pushed my creativity and upped my word count.
