As I’ve mentioned before, as a writer I’m into people watching. You can a lot of story ideas just from watching folks. One advantage I have is that I live by a busy market so there is always lots of people to watch!
After Labor Day people watching becomes different than in the middle of summer. In summer people are more relaxed, after summer ends people are more intense, vacation time is over and it’s back to taking care of business. At the market people are quicker shopping with less looking around checking things out. Football season also brings another change in how people act. If their team is doing good they act happy, if not they are grumpy!
All of this makes people watching more fun and interesting. Every day is an adventure and material for another story or article. So if you have the chance check out the people around you and enjoy a few moments to try and figure out what’s making them tick!
Cheers and I’ll see you next week
