I went shopping.
What an experience! I forgot what it was like to browse in stores and came back home a new woman. Especially as I discovered the LUSH vegan handmade lotions. What a godsend! No dairy or egg! Safe for Ninja Girl, as long as there are no nut ingredients. Most of you are probably scratching your head, wondering what on earth I'm writing about.
Did you know many beauty products (soaps, shampoos/conditioners, lotions, makeup, etc.) contain some derivative of milk, egg, or nuts? Label reading extends to all products that enter our household. It's an eye-opening experience--it's disappointing
It was a treat to read the LUSH product labels--most of the ingredients are natural organics and as for the synthetic ingredients, they are far less than what's in most labels. Made me so happy I treated my girls (and me) to a couple lovely potions. Now I can't stop smelling my hands, the scent is so wonderful. Ahhh!
But, I can write. Time to focus on some sensory details.
Write-a-Scene Writing Prompt: Time to reward your protagonist. Write a scene where your protagonist gets a break from the conflict and refuels before the next crisis hits. How comfortable is your protagonist with the treat? Still on edge, waiting for the other shoe to drop? Or totally immersed in the good times? Happy Writing!
