I just had to add a bit about the crayons.
I am a co-founder of the Writers Inspiration Group which meets every Tuesday. We take turns providing writing prompts to the group. After the prompt is given we write for about 10 minutes. Then we go around and read, or pass. We don't critique; we just share. We are almost to our Fourth Anniversary.
Today I took in my pile of back-to-school supplies including 6 boxes of crayons. I also had some coloring pages I had printed off the Internet. I told the group about sniffing crayons and then let them color for awhile. Then we wrote about our back-to-school memories.
