My friend Elyse recently posted about her favorite things, and I wanted to do the same!
1. The perfect phrase/image. My writer’s heart takes delight in the phrases that make me catch my breath.
2. Certain kinds of awkwardness. Primarily of the I-think-we-have-crushes-on-each-other type.
3. Color. Especially really rich reds and purples. (More details here.)
4. Creativity and the joy that comes from it. Although this is bigger than writing, writing probably tops my list!
5. Deep conversation sprinkled with silliness. One of the common threads through my closest friendships!
6. Smells. Current favorites are lilacs, mown grass, and Love, NY&C fragrance.
