I words -- well, there's not that many of them, but it was still tough. Ice and igloos first came to mind, but I hate both of those -- not that I have any experience of igloos, but since they're made of ice and I don't like the cold, well, they both made me go ICK! (Hmmm, there must be an "I" theme here or something. Next thought is definitely one of my favorites, though -- ice cream! Yum! I was hung up on Haagen Daaz's special edition Bananas Foster all last year. I couldn't tell you how many cartons of that stuff I ate--every single night. But as usual with my food obsessions, I eventually tired of it, and actually gave my waistline a break and quit eating ice cream at all. Then it was Mint Chocolate Chip. I bought Strawberry for Easter and it's tasting pretty yum! But my favorite flavor that I can't find anymore is Lemon Custard. It's a delicate flavor of lemon. I remember it from childhood. Then Baskin Robbins carried it for a while, but that was a long time ago.
Another I that comes to mind is Imagination, or my lack of it when trying to picture scenes or characters in my mind when I read or write. It's why I do love heavy descriptions in a book I'm reading, because it helps me get a visual in my mind. And when I write, I usually only have a vague idea of what my characters look like, usually their faces are rather blank. I may pick out one characteristic to focus on, like eyes or a nose, and that's about it. I don't know if this is a good thing or a bad thing. Maybe the character would come more alive for me if I had a strong visual? But my characters are pretty alive for me, or their personalities anyway. What I have trouble with is physical actions, and maybe if I had a strong visual, I could imagine those better? Anyway, I do like how j_cheney has pictures for all her characters. If you like visuals for writing prompts, as I do, may I again suggest a site that has some really cool ones? http://www.writingprompts.us/
