Reason to Be Happy #134:
Stirring A Big Pot o' Stew on a Chilly Day
One of my favorite activities when the temperatures drop. There's something so satisfying about chopping everything, then stirring and stirring. This is a perfect activity to prompt story ideas, unlock a stalled scene, consider the next plot point. In the summer, this is all accomplished for me by pruning and weeding in the garden. Now that it's colder, I turn to chopping and stirring. And, hey, there's the lovely byproduct of a great meal at the end of it.
