#AtoZChallenge — Junk

This post is part of the April A to Z Blogging Challenge, where I am challenging myself to reflect on other A to Z posts that I come across.


A to Z Challenge: J is for Junk (#AtoZChallenge)

A to Z Challenge: J is for Junk (#AtoZChallenge)

I agree that junk can make for good pictures, and this post reminded me of some screencaps I took a couple months ago of… some Buzzfeed list, probably. The reason I saved them is because seeing them made me think of my fantasy novel, set sometime after our modern world collapses and magic replaces technology.

Okay, not all of these are technically junk. But it’s all “stuff we don’t want any more, stuff that probably doesn’t work anymore, or we don’t need any more, or is stained or broken.”

These are the footprints we will leave, for better or for worse… and someday, someone is going to think they look really interesting. If that’s not a reason to incorporate things like this into my fantasy setting, then what is?

    1. Junk can be the coolest! There’s an antique shop near my house that’s laid out kind of like a jumble sale when the weather is nice. Chairs set out in rows by the side of the road, old boxcars full of furniture, and all sorts of other odds and ends. If I were into refinishing and fixing things up to resell, I would definitely hit that place up on a regular basis — there are all sorts of neat gems buried in there.
