Here's your 15 seconds of inspiration, your Tuesday Tidbit:
Look over your rough drafts and study your vignettes' settings:
- Have you written so readers will get a sense of place?
- Have you included the words—the lingo, the vocabulary—of that region?
- Have you captured the place's philosophy? Include that if it's relevant to your story.
- Have you included the area's passions and culture—those unique activities or beliefs or traditions that characterize the place?
Take time—make time—to recognize the "sounds and rhythms and fragrances" (L.L. Barkat) of those places and write them into your vignettes.
And have fun!
