I love it, Kestra! I love that nature inspires you so!
It inspires me too. Whenever I’m having a tough time, I go for a walk. But like you, it’s kind of hard to get in a hike in Montana this time of year. Have you considered taking a virtual tour of a forest or river? For instance, I haven’t gone to Yellowstone National Park in too long, so I take myself on a virtual tour HERE. It’s not the same, but it’s not bad and has sparked a few ideas while I’m watching. OH! And I know a lot of exercises nowadays try to give you a virtual tour of a place while exercising. That’s such a great idea! Have you tried anything like that?
Oh, and we’re all writers here: we can “see” our characters too! You’re so not alone! 🙂
