|Notice the one branch that got munched!|
|Something is digging up this rose!|
It's like writing a story--in the middle of a writing jaunt of an hour or so, all of a sudden a new character interjects themselves into my novel. BAM! Or even more challenging, I character I've already planned the arc for decides to take on a new defect or asset. Sometimes I find a major plot point needs work or to be changed altogether. The lessons from my garden spill over into my writing...I have to stay flexible. I have to plant foliage that rabbits, groundhogs and moles don't like. I need to plant higher, out of reach. Likewise I need to allow my characters room to grow up, out, and take on their own ideas of where their destiny is headed.
