Nature is such an inspiration.
The builder of this nest utilized the tools at hand. One tool the bird used was my hair, weaved through with the hay and twigs. It was evident the nest had been a hatching place then a first flight vantage point. Where it was discovered, it had to be rescued. Suffice it to say, I saved this nest and will preserve it as a reminder of how everything works together for the good.
I wonder how long it took the bird to create this nest? I brush my hair outside every chance I get, hoping for this purpose or will meet some other nature’s need. It was thrilling to see my efforts did not go unappreciated.
This is the way I feel about writing. I create to preserve a little bit of myself in each story I write. I am grateful and appreciative to those who read my novels and provide me with constructive feedback. They are my inspiration to continue, to push through the self-doubt, the block, and the frustration that comes with telling a story.
