Ask an Author – August 2023 – Summer Invites You

I have been using the month of August and the “summer invites you” strategy for many years now, and I can assure you that it works.

There are so many things about summer that we can use to help us clear our minds and imaginations of clutter and cobwebs and to spark and stimulate our creative juices.

Here is why our five senses can help us out!

  • For the sense of hearing: Crashing waves, birds singing, and kids laughing are just some examples.
  • For the sense of smell: Fragrant flowers, fresh breezes, and folks barbecuing.
  • For the sense of taste: Cool lemonade, ice tea, and hamburgers.
  • For the sense of touch: Damp dew on the grass, cool sand beneath our toes and fingers, and wet melon trickling down our cheeks.

I urge you to try out this strategy for the month of August.

It works and I can prove it!
