I would actually go back to my childhood and encourage myself to pay more attention to details.
Listen and observe more closely.
You think sitting at your grandmother’s kitchen table and listening to your uncles tell stories is fun.
These are seeds being sown into your soul. Soak up everything. You will use all you’re hearing, seeing, touching, tasting, and smelling.
When you’re an author you will draw from these holy moments. All great storytelling begins in childhood.
