Writing Challenge Day 48: Scents and Sounds

Just joined us? Jump in where you are. Don't feel you have to catch up, or to go back and start at the beginning. Just work on today's assignment. For more information about the challenge, read this post.


Describe the sounds and scents of your childhood environment. Did you wake up to the smell of brewing coffee, or fall asleep to the muffled sounds of your parents' conversation in the next room? What about your school, your outside play areas, your friends' homes?
