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?
