They say it killed the cat.
That's the left brainers talking.
Writers - and other right brainers - know curiosity by other names. It's our spark, our muse, our subconscious, our what-if.
We see one thing and want to know a thousand bits of information about it.
It's what we use to get to that core of emotion we seek to get across to our readers. That essence of personality we want our readers to understand about our characters.
Our curiosity is a gift to be fed and nutured.
How do we do that?
By not being afraid to explore.
Walk down those lanes that intrigue you, physically as well as mentally and emotionally.
See what lurks behind the cobwebs in the corners of your mind.
You might be surprised by what you find.
