Obsessions

Rachel has 'tagged' my blog and given it an award! Thank you Rachel (I hope I'm doing this right).

I've been challenged to list 5 obsessions. Since my personal obsessions (wine, chocolate, daydreaming etc) aren't very exciting, I thought I'd offer 5 obsessions in my writing instead (hope that's ok) so here goes

Some features that tend to haunt my stories are -

secrets

smells

breaking points

light

mothers


hmmmm.

Moving swiftly on, I'm to pass on the award and challenge to 5 others, so stand by

ooh!
I try to incorporate smells into my writing all the time since they are so powerful at evoking an emotional response.

Completely agree - I love a good smell. And even a bad one too.

Megan, Thank you so much for choosing me! But you'll have to spell out what I have to do - I'm someone's mum at a wedding, remember?! Do I just list 5 obsessions - on my blog or yours? and pass it onto 5 more? How do I do it? Is there a special doo dah function? (Someone's granny more like!) X
