Week 4 we're supposed to post what makes writing worth it for us. Then we are to post one of our Warm Fuzzy moments. It can be a scene from a WIP, short story or poem.
What makes writing worth it for me? It allows me the ability to release. Express. Share. Give. It makes it all worth while when someone reads something I've written, and they say, "Wow! tell me more!"
Here's a tiny warm & fuzzy from a picture book I wrote last year:
Little Acorn wiggled around and found a cozy place to rest.
Although a bit frightened, he trusted Father knew best.
"Sleep tight, Little Acorn, have no fear.
I will watch over you. I will be right here."
Little Acorn twirled around until he was tucked in snug.
He pretended the leaves were like Father Oak's hug.
He whispered, " Be brave," and he tried not to weep.
He closed his eyes, and settled in for a long winter sleep.
