Hidden in the winter soil.
This Sedum, a gift, from my parents’ garden.
Perhaps it hasn’t survived, I thought. Then, this.
Worth the wait!
So if a gardener can wait, patiently, for the gems hidden below the surface to emerge, can a writer too? Is the preparation and maintenance work the same for the gardener as for the writer?
Words don’t come from nowhere. As a friend of mine, Rae Cowie, writes in her blog, you have to ‘fill the creative well‘.
Water and nourish to flourish with books, discussion, observation, experiences, emotions and, of course, time.
There’s more to this writing lark than sitting at a desk so I’m off out – and then, I’ll be back!
Wishing you all a lovely week and the best of luck in finding your own ‘hidden gems’.
