My New Quirk #amwriting

I’ve discovered something. It’s fairly recent, but I’ve begun touching my index or thumb to the tip of my nose when I’m in thought. I have no idea why I do this, but I began somewhere around two weeks ago.
I just realized I do this today and while it bugs me, it also clicked that this is something I can use. People do stuff all the time without realizing. Whether it’s a nervous twitch, an occasional limp, or chewing on a lower lip, people do things that attract the eye. And just like in my post about listening, as writers we should be paying attention to the things people do as well as what they say.
I’m not sure how this is going to manifest itself, but this whole nose-touching thing is going to wind up in something. Maybe it’ll wind up in Dethm8, which will be back tomorrow night!
