Kelli Anderson’s TED talk
I really enjoyed this video because she is asking you to challenge what you see and how you use the world around you. Nothing is “as is.” For example, she turns a wedding invitation into a record player! Seriously.
So if the reality of the objects we expect can be subverted, how would you create your life? What does that do for your writing?
If your descriptions are a bit blah, find a new way to look at the world around you. Discover something unexpected. See something in a new light.
