Added Elements

Since remodeling, and home improvement is such a huge part of my personal life, I tend to imbue that into my writing as well. In my non-fiction writing I specialize in many areas that I have personal knowledge or interest in personally, and in my fiction work I add those elements to my work as well. For instance, I may have a character debating how glass tile in their kitchen will make a difference... it usually does have some impact on the plot as well, but whether it does, or doesn't it adds a personality to the character, and the backdrop of their lives as well. These are important elements in any writing.
