Update on My Writing Tree

Almost a year ago, I shared this post about my writing tree. It was a tiny, broken, but still-growing tree I walked past each day while walking my dog. It taught, inspired, and spoke to me each time I passed. So I wanted to update you on the growth and progress of my writing tree because I still pass it each day while walking my dog. On the left is what it looked like a year ago. On the right is my writing tree today. Hopefully my writing has grown and changed as much as my writing tree has.

  2. I hadn't found you a year ago so this is cool to see. It may take time but nature always bounces back.

  6. It certainly looks sturdier this year. It's good to know that one's writing can always get "sturdier" too!

  7. What a cool comparison! I love the two pictures. (I also love that you call this tree your writing tree). I hope this does mimic your writing - the tree this year is beautiful!

  14. Wow. It's grown so much in only a year. I think it's great that writers can grow a lot in a short amount of time, too. :)

  15. When I'm in the flow of my writing, walking can be a catalyst for advancing the story. Funny that you and I both wrote about trees and walking our dogs. Thank you for commenting on my blog, BTW. I've been so negligent about it recently, it's gratifying to see it's still being read. And - good luck with your revision.
