Sunglasses or a Wide Brimmed Hat?
After a few weeks of feeling a little out of sorts, a bit like the spiral on the left, I am back out in the world and looking for new inspiration for my writing. What better way to do this than to be a nosy parker (sometimes spelled, nosey parker) or as I like to call it a Discreet Observation Moment (DOM)?
I love looking at weird and wonderful buildings and deciding what type of person lives there, as well as events that could have secretly taken place within its walls – the mind boggles with glee. The imagination stirred on a recent DOM mission when I stood in front of this building.
I quickly fixed my oversized sun-glasses in place as the investigative five ‘W’s leapt into action: what? Why? Who? Where? When? Numerous plots for a variety of stories materialised.
Nic’s Tip: When on a DOM mission, or just being a big nosy parker (sometimes spelled, nosey parker), wear dark sunglasses or a wide brimmed hat!
Do you have any other tips for being discreet when gathering writing material?
