Labors of Creation
It all begins with a seed in the ground. That symbolizes the initial idea for a story. When the seed grows into a sapling that is the advance of the story in your mind with the fragile branches being characters you want to use. As the trunk thickens and the branches extend becoming stronger the story takes on complex issues and the characters develop. As the tree grows to maturity the story does as well. It advances and finally is full grown. The branches have reached their extent and the characters are fully developed. Leaves are the parts that connect the two. There you have it. A brand-new story. Making it in your mind is the easy part. Writing it as a book is what’s difficult. Just like I have great respect for farmers, I also have great respect for other writers. Whether you’re reading the greatest book in the world or the worst, someone labored long and hard to create that book and that alone is worth admiration. So next time you read a book, or watch a TV show or movie, think of all the work that went into bringing that to you.
