The very scent of the places draw me in.
1. A bookstore, especially the ones with coffee shops. Bookstores, like Books-a-Million and Barnes & Noble are great. They have a certain air about them, the scent of paper, the tens of rows to disappear, the maze-like wonder of getting lost in fiction is fabulous. But even better are those little nook bookshops. The used bookstores where rhyme and reason may require thinking outside the box.
Oooo, I love to visit those because then you can dig through old a new books a like in search of a treasure.
2. The second place I love ot go for inspiration is The Coffee Company – a little coffee shop on the quaint downtown street here. The scents of hot coffee mingled with the fabulous homemade patries, is enought o undo anyone.
It houses trickets for sale on its shelves. Offers seats that leave you a view of downtown or tables in the back for privacy. Truly, the best aesthetic inspration of this place is the smell, but the personalities who travel in and out; the servers; are all beautiful opportunites for stories to develop.
3. My third place is the mountains. If I can sit with a view like this out in nature – oh man, inspiration starts flowing.
