#AprilPrompt Day 6 Growth

I believe that writing is a lot like growing a plant.

First you have your farmer…aka the writer. You take a seed and plant it. This is the idea that has been planted in the writer’s head. Water it regularly so it will grow. This is the writer’s words raining down onto the blank pages. Add in some sunshine…the writer’s love for his/her story. Watch it peak it’s head above the soil. Just like the story grows page after page. Don’t forget to prune…the editing process. Out with the bad and keep the good. A lot of hard work and in no time you have a healthy plant…the novel or short story. Now I’m off to tend to my garden…I mean my story.
