Wandering around my daughter's college town, running errands at multiple stores including Walmart, I came across a puzzle. If you knew me, you'd think: Why in the world would you be looking at jigsaw puzzles...you have no time and should be writing. Well, you may be right. Thing is, I've discovered that working puzzles and playing an occasional puzzle game (like Mahjong) helps make my brain think differently. Somehow it gets me into the right writing mode for suspense.
The other major occasion I work puzzles is while camping with my husband. We work a puzzle to decompress and completely "unplug" (with the exception of some music). Our most recent puzzle was of candy. Not exceptionally hard, but hard enough. We picked it up because we were taking the grandkids to the lake during 100+ weather and knew we'd need some down time inside. We were totally amazed at how engaged the kids became and how often they wanted to work on the puzzle. Most of the time, it was what they chose to "play."
My questions for today and I hope there are lots of people to answer:
WHO is your favorite type of hero or what type of guy attracts you? or Tell me what you do when you "unplug."
I have several books to give away... several to choose from... and will choose 1 book for every 7 comments. Leave a comment to be eligible for the Random.org drawing on Wednesday.
