Is everything about writing?
It's in every day events that people relate to your stories, like getting caught in traffic, or meeting someone for the first time. There is commonality in these things, and there is uniqueness to them. The way someone greets you, the car you let into traffic who only moves half into your lane to block the people behind who didn't move over soon enough, the idioms and idiosyncrasies. These are the things that I see that stick with me, like hiking and encountering a woman with a small dog who jokes that it's a pygmy albino coyote (see my Sedona post - still one of my favorite encounteres that will likely creep into a story).
So yes, most often, everything relates into my writing.
