I went to a local coffee shop to watch my brother-in-law play guitar and bass guitar. Being a resourceful guy, he utilizes his feet for bass playing, while playing guitar with his hands.
What's a toe bass player doing on a blog about writing?
Well, besides being pretty cool, it's supposed to make you think. Do you have enough music in your current W.I.P.? Do your characters have any unusual talents? Where are you going in the world to gather ideas?
At open mic night, not only did I see my brother-in-law, I heard other musical talent, saw people dressed in various hats, and looked at the paintings of a local artist. I took in the general decor of the café (cozy, complete with comfy chairs and well stocked book shelves) and watched people walking by the window (especially the cute couple in the court yard who posed by the Spanish architecture, taking pictures). All of it feeds my writerly brain. What feeds yous?
