A toddler’s wisdom

My 2yo daughter showed me the straw from her juice box and said, “Look, Mommy.  Seven!”  The way the straw was bent, it did indeed look just like a number seven.  My little girl is so eager to discover new relationships in her world.  She finds connections all the time that I miss because I’m not looking for them or not paying attention. 

 It makes me wonder what opportunities I’m missing in my writing.  Are there relationships or connections I’m not seeing because I’m too focused on the big picture or too zeroed in on some other minutia?  I’m going to tackle my writing this week with a toddler’s eye. 

 What little things can you discover in your own writing that are magical for their simplicity and connectedness?


About Jessi Gage

Jessi lives with her husband and children in the Seattle area. She’s a passionate reader of all genres of romance, especially anything involving the paranormal. Ghosts, demons, vampires, witches, weres, faeries...you name it, she’ll read it. As for writing, she's sticking to Highlanders and contemporaries with a paranormal twist (for now). A career student (aka indecisive and inquisitive bookworm), Jessi brings her love of research to her worlds and characters. Her guiding tenet in her writing is that good always trumps evil, but not before evil gives good one heck of a run for its money. The last time she imagined a world without romance novels, her husband found her crouched in the corner, rocking.
